More news, no ads


Danny Robinson has admitted that Ryan Seager is ‘getting his just rewards’ after scoring his first competitive hat-trick for Hungerford Town as they beat Maidstone United 3-2 on Saturday.

Seager scored two first-half goals, but the visitors battled back to level the scores at 2-2 in the second period.

However, the forward netted his seventh goal in four games in stoppage time to hand Town the three points.

And manager Robinson said: “He is a great finisher and anything that is in or around the box gives him a chance.

“Centre forwards go up and down in form because at the start of the season he wasn’t quite clicking, but all he has done is kept his head down and worked hard for the team and he’s getting his just rewards.”

A crowd of over 500 packed into Bulpit Lane on Saturday to see an entertaining National League South clash and Robinson was, once again, delighted to see the supporters.

“I want to get more and more people watching Hungerford and through the gate and our crowd on Saturday was brilliant.

“We are making great strides on and off the pitch, because it’s not all about what goes on the pitch as Patrick, Nicky and all the committee are doing fantastic stuff to promote the club.”

Maidstone one of the full-time clubs in the division and Robinson expressed his delight with the three points.

“We rode our luck in the first 10 minutes or so, but after we settled down we grew into the game and we were deservedly 2-0 up.

“It was disappointed to see them score before and after half-time, but we had great character to keep going against a very good side and I don’t think anyone can begrudge us winning the game.”

This weekend, Hungerford travel to Billericay with Robinson fully aware of the task in hand.

“We have done our homework like we always do and Billericay have some good players that can really hurt you.

“I am pretty certain they will climb up the table, so it will be a really tough ask for us to go there and get something but we need to perform well.”
