Blues boss not completely satisfied with big win, but pleased to keep clean sheet

Player/joint-manager Glen Golby says there is still more to come from Barking, despite seeing his side put seven past Burnham Ramblers in the Essex Senior League.

The Blues roared to a 7-0 success at Mayesbrook Park courtesy of four goals from recent addition Omari Delgado and a James Peagram hat-trick.

It was a result that saw Barking maintain their four-point lead at the top of the standings, but their boss was still a little deflated after the match.

“It was nice to get the win, but there are still aspects of the game that I’m unhappy with,” said Golby.

“I know it sounds silly after such a win, but there is definitely still room for improvement from us.

“There are some big games to come and we need to get into the right habits, but one or two strayed from that against Burnham.

“However, it was a good win and having led by so much early on as it allowed to take a few players off and rest them.”

While Barking were prolific at one end, they also impressed at the other as they recorded a first clean sheet in three matches in all competitions.

And having played as a defender for much of his career, Golby was happy to see his side keep it tight at the back, knowing it could help them in their title challenge.

“At half-time, we told the boys it was crucial for them to keep a clean sheet as come the end of the season, if it’s decided by goal difference than that is something that will help us,” he added.
