As we enter the New Year, it has been a testing period so far for Budleigh Salterton Football Club, especially as they lack the financial backing of many of their opponents, writes SpursTom.
On the playing front, like most teams there have been outgoings and incomings with the squad, with some players re-joining the club, which has been a help to First Team player-manager Danny Williams, as he still learning the art of management.
He and his squad have been eliminated from all the major cup competitions, though they are still involved in the Axminster Hospital Cup, as well as the Morrison Bell Cup.
In the league they stand joint second in the Carlsberg South West Peninsular Division One (East), but they have played the most games, with only eight points separating first and seventh position. At present it seems unlikely of them winning the league, but should accomplish a top half finish.
Regarding the Reserves, this wet weather has come at the wrong time, for the team with a few additions seemed to be fostering a better understanding. There is still a lot of hard work ahead if they intend getting away from a relegation dog fight!
It’s going to be tough struggle with nine away games to come from the 14 remaining fixtures (many of which are against the top six).
As it is all very close between the bottom eight, it’s very important for the Robins to obtain points from those around them.
