More news, no ads


Jamie Leacock believes his Thatcham Town side will start collecting more points if they maintain their performance levels.

Despite losing their three games over the Christmas period against Basingstoke, Marlow and Uxbridge, the Town boss has been pleased with his side’s efforts.

After 20 league games, Thatcham currently sit 12th and Leacock is confident their fortunes in terms of results will change.

“We have come out of all three of them having lost them, but the performances have been excellent.

“I was frustrated, but when looking at the journey we’re on as a new group then it is really positive that we’re putting in displays against these sort of sides.

“My overriding sense is that the performances have been excellent over the three games, despite not coming away with anything.”

Although they have won just one game in their last five, Leacock is aware that results will start to follow.

“I have to keep believing in the journey we’re on and what we’re trying to do and I genuinely believe that if we keep performing the way we are then those performances will be turned into wins.

“Now what we have to do is make sure we’re as up for these games in the same way our performance levels have hit against these bigger teams.

After a difficult run of fixtures, Thatcham host Ashford Town on Saturday and there is just two league positions between the sides.

“There is no point playing well against the bigger sides if we don’t turn up against teams in and around us.

“It starts this weekend against Ashford, who are mid-table, and we have got to perform to the levels we have been doing.

“It is not a given that you’ll turn up and win in this league, so we have to be at it and I won’t allow the boys to be complacent.

“You can turn up and undo all your hard work because if you do that you will get punished and it doesn’t matter who you play against.”
