The for­mer North Green­ford United and to help out un­til the end of the sea­son.

“We’re just here to help and we’ll see where we go from there.

“There is a good project go­ing on with the FAB Academy, but they were strug­gling and needed a dif­fer­ent ap­proach from out­side of it.

“It’s great to be back be­cause I didn’t want to leave in the first place, it was just cir­cum­stances.

“We didn’t know what was hap­pen­ing and there was a job of­fer on the ta­ble from Burn­ham.

“We should get enough points to stay up, but a few changes need to be made be­cause the ta­ble speaks for it­self.” Bea­cons­field United striker joined the Saints on loan from Ryman Premier side Hen­don over the new year pe­riod.

How­ever, fol­low­ing just one sub­sti­tute ap­pear­ance, he was re­called by Hen­don last week, leav­ing Saints boss Ed­wards in a philo­soph­i­cal mood.

He said: “Aaron joined on loan from Hen­don but

Meakin has brought back five for­mer SYCOB stars from Burn­ham, but it was a FAB Academy player, El­liott Carey, who earned them a 1-1 draw at Go­dalm­ing Town on Satur­day.

Meakin added: “Some of the young­sters are not good enough to stay in and around it straight away, while some are.

“Some will take it with both hands and progress and oth­ers will fall away, but that’s life, they can’t all be good enough.

“There may be one or two more for­mer play­ers com­ing in, but the ones back here al­ready are the main ones.” Gary McCann re­called him and he was in their squad last Satur­day and will prob­a­bly be in it again this week­end.

“He would have made a dif­fer­ence for us up front, but he’s a Hen­don player and he should be play­ing for them.

“That’s the risk you take with loan play­ers.

“Aaron was a great lad in train­ing and did ev­ery­thing we asked of him.

“But I don’t think there’s much chance of get­ting him back now.”

Mor­gan’s exit was an un­timely one for a Saints side who Ed­wards ad­mits have been strug­gling for goals, fol­low­ing de­feats with­out scor­ing to AFC Hayes last Satur­day (1-0) and Pot­ters Bar Tues­day night (2-0).

The one sav­ing grace for Ed­wards, whose side host Mar­low this Satur­day, is they are do­ing ev­ery­thing else right bar putting the ball in the back of the onion bag.

He added: “We’ve only scored one goal in three games against teams near

on the bot­tom. We’re lack­ing some qual­ity in the box, and it looks like we’ll have to work on the fi­nal third again.

“We are dom­i­nat­ing th­ese teams com­pletely, but los­ing to teams like Pot­ters Bar and AFC Hayes is the dif­fer­ence be­tween be­ing a play-off side and a mid-ta­ble side.

“Tues­day was the same as Satur­day, but Satur­day was harder to take. Pot­ters Bar scored with their only two chances, but AFC Hayes were re­ally poor, and that was a kick in the teeth.”

Fol­low­ing Satur­day’s game, Ed­wards’ men are on the road again on Tues­day night when they head to the Mid­lands to take on Daven­try Town.
