Chatteris Town boss Unwin hopes run continues after 6-1 thumping of Waterbeach
CHATTERIS Town manager Jimmy Unwin is hoping Saturday’s 6-1 thumping of Waterbeach gives his players the belief to continue their excellent start to life in the Kershaw Premier Division.
Richard Allan smashed a hat-trick while Jon Brierley, Aaron Bailey and Stuart Porter got in on the act to complete the rout and keep Chatteris fourth.
Unwin now hopes his side can go into this weekend’s clash at Great Shelford, who are only ahead of the Lilies on goal difference, brimming with confidence.
“It wasn’t the greatest performance ever,” said the Chatteris boss.
“Waterbeach were poor but we were clinical and it was great for Richard Allen to score a hat-trick.
“He scored 30 goals last year and hopefully this well set him on a run. Saturday’s game at Shelford is massive because we’re on the same points.
“This will be the challenge to see how far we’ve come. The players have stepped-up and are now beginning to realise we can compete at this level. They are a good team and our boys will have to be men again but I believe in them.”
