I was asked on Saturday why I hadn’t posted anything after the Rotherham game. I had planned to – but I also felt that enough other people were making it clear what the day meant whether through the press, the Forum, verbally or by email. I didn’t think there was much to add. What I will say, probably as a final word for now, is that it was one of the great Wealdstone days that we’ve had over the years, one which makes you proud and hungry for more.
But Rotherham is also now in the past. We have to think about Farnborough this coming Saturday and eventually getting back into the routine of league matches. Roll on tomorrow night, especially after the frustrating events of our trip to Margate.
I had to leave Mill Hill late on Saturday and driving, a little faster than I should have done in the conditions, arrived at Hartsdown Park at 3.00 on the dot. As I pulled up at the Stadium my daughter called me and said she had read on the Forum that the game had been postponed. I said I didn’t know what was happening but there were people leaving the ground. Of course, it was a referee’s worst nightmare in that conditions appeared to change almost immediately, but I will go with the views of all our players and management who felt the ref had made the right call, frustrating as it was for everyone.
So life goes on. Our short term challenge as a Board, remains as it always is to progress the situation the Club is in, to see how we can channel more resources to the playing front while seeking to improve things off the field.
Things have been going well and we are stepping up our efforts in a number of areas. But there is (as always) much to do. I listed out all the people I need to sit down with over the coming weeks and stopped at 14 – so plenty of work (and talking) ahead. That process never stops and I am meeting with both Gordon and Leo later today.
We will hold the Club AGM early in the New Year and at that time will seek to share the vision of where the Club is heading and the outcome of all of these meetings. Until then let’s get back to winning league matches.
