Rams boss has gaps to fill after dis­missals

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

ANDY Hur­ley hopes to have a trio of new sign­ings in the bag in time for Satur­day’s home game against North­wood, writes Tim Street.

The Bea­cons­field SYCOB boss has been look­ing for re­in­force­ments since los­ing cen­tre backs Tom Will­ment and Jonathan Mun­day to Hunger­ford and Go­dalm­ing last month.

How­ever, he has been forced to ex­tend his search as keeper Sam Bunt­ing and de­fender Gu­ram Gu­ramishvilli have onematch bans com­ing up fol­low­ing their red cards in last Satur­day’s 4-2 de­feat at Ayles­bury.

Hur­ley said: “They are only one-match bans, so it could have been worse. I will bring in a keeper from our academy to fill in for Sam, and I have been work­ing very hard to make some more sign­ings so we have more cover at cen­tre back.

“I’m talk­ing to a few at the mo­ment, and I hope to have three – a de­fender, a mid­fielder and a striker – who all have good ex­pe­ri­ence at this level, signed up by the end of the week.”

Hur­ley also be­moaned the five min­utes of mad­ness that cost his side the game at Ayles­bury. SYCOB were a goal up with half-time ap­proach­ing, but con­ceded three in five min­utes, and were one man down at the in­ter­val.

In a spir­ited sec­ond-half fight­back, they pulled a goal back and almost drew level, only to lose a sec­ond player to an early bath and con­cede a late goal.

He added: “We had them on the ropes un­til they broke away, our keeper was sent off and they got a fourth.

“How­ever, I said to the boys in the dress­ing room af­ter­wards that I have got noth­ing but praise for them.”
