Rams boss has gaps to fill after dismissals
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.”
