BARKING manager Steve Munday has admitted the club is 'buzzing', as they prepare to take on Clapton this weekend.

The Essex club won their first game in 18 on Saturday after hammering Mauritius Sports 5-1 and despite the massive win, Munday will be taking little for granted at the weekend.

"That win has given us a massive opportunity," he said.

"I know Clapton are down there, but it will be a hard game. They were unlucky against Enfield on Saturday and they will be up for it. I am confident, as long the players do as we ask!"

It is not just the manager whose self-belief is sky high, as after two weeks with the new management team, Munday believes the benefits are already beginning to show.

"It has been great here over the last couple of weeks," he smiled.

"We have had three or four training sessions and things have gone very well.

"Neil Day has come in as coach and he has been excellent for us. He has brought a new lease of life, the players are really enjoying themselves and the place is buzzing."

The confidence shone through in Saturday's mauling of Mauritius and Munday was more than happy with the performance.

"We needed the win for confidence as much as anything, but I was more than happy with the performance," he said.

"We played well for 70 minutes on a muddy surface. I was disappointed not to keep a clean sheet, that would have been nice.
