But loan signing Greg came in to make up the numbers to six and we stormed into the nes season against old foes Kashima Antlers. Abib and Will formed a formidable strike partnership and were both on the score sheet early on, Abib with two and Will with three as we went into half time 5-0 up! Kashima hit back but Will added his fourth to make it 6-1 before Greg capped an impressive debut with a well taken seventh.
The win means we begin the new campaign at the top of the table whilst Will tops the goal scoring charts for League Three after a storming game up front. With limited resources we battled hard and the result was just what we deserved. A fine goalkeeping display from the Antlers stopper kept the scores at bay and it could have been worse for them if it wasn’t for some great saves!
We go into next week with high optimism now as we face The Eagles, who suffered an 8-4 defeat.
