Although we are very much looking to gain those vital league points that will see us climb up the table, our most recent form is proof positive that we are beginning to click.

A 2-1 victory away to Sun Sports in the League Challenge Trophy puts us in just the right frame of mind before this weekend’s FA Vase clash against United Counties League opponents, Cogenhoe United.

I really hope we can mount a strong and prolonged campaign in all competitions but specifically in the FA Vase competition where the final is played at Wembley Stadium, this season for the first time as part of a double-header with the FA Trophy final.

It was wonderful to see Quique de Lucas turn out for us again. He started on the bench and came on and helped turned things around after we had fallen behind.

But most importantly what we produced, despite conceding an early goal, was a united team display where we put into practice all those things we have been working on so hard in training, to earn a deserved place in the next round.

We certainly need to score more goals, but that’s also something we are dedicating time to in training.

But what is clearer than ever is that we are becoming much more of a solid unit where everyone knows what their job is.

There is also now competition for places, which is always a good thing, and we are also spending much more time on addressing our weaknesses and learning from our mistakes.

I’m confident we will start to see an upturn in results and the fact is we need them to climb our way off the wrong end of the table.

Off the pitch things, thanks in no small part to our involvement with Top Eleven, get more and more surreal by the day. Unprecedented movement on our Twitter account now makes Biggleswade United the 50th most followed English football club on that medium which is more, I’m reliably informed than some Championship sides.

We are also getting requests from people all over the world who want to purchase our shirts, obviously because they like the shirt, but also because they are involved with the club in playing the Top Eleven managers game.
