SCRUM-HALF Jack Gash believes Barking can win all their remaining National Three South matches this campaign, writes MATT DINER.
The talented back has played a pivotal role in the club's recent success and although Barking have all but secured their place in the league for next season, he is keen that their good run continues.
"We have three games remaining and we want to win all of them, that is our main target," he said.
"We are safe now, we want to finish fifth in the league. We can improve our form and hopefully bring that into next season and hit the ground running.
"We're looking to win all our games and take a few scalps. We have a couple of tough games, but we're starting to come together as a team and as a squad, so it is important we get results to build towards next season."
Gash was keen to praise the role played by new director of rugby, Alex Codling, in Barking's improved results.
"There's been a lot of positivity from him. Everything we do is positive and we are starting to build together as a squad," he said.
"There are new heads, old heads and young boys here all working together well.
"Everyone knows their job and have set goals we want to achieve, everyone is on the same page looking to do really well next season."
There could be a number of new faces in the Barking line-up in years to come, with players from Robert Clack School, where Gash coaches, keen to make an impact.
"A lot will hopefully come through the ranks, they're all pushing for a place here next year. People round here will have to watch out because the young boys will be pushing them hard," he grinned.
"I have been with Robert Clack since January and it has been very good and they have been enjoying it. We have had some good results from them lately and its all been positive.
"The scheme is through Barking Rugby Club and I think it has had a very positive impact for all concerned and quite a lot of boys come over here to Goresbrook and play their rugby.
