Green’s Allen has ‘no regrets’ not applying for promotion
Going up ‘would be running before we can walk’
Allen said: “That’s not something we’ve even thought about, it would be running before we can walk. Most of the teams around us in the table have a budget, whereas we don’t pay our players. We beg, steal and borrow – but what we do have is a group of lads who have gelled superbly.
“After last season, our first target was 40 points to stay up and kick on from there. It’s the best squad I’ve had since I’ve been here, and the difference this year is when players aren’t available, I can call on some very good youngsters from our U18s.
“To finish in the top five or six would be a fantastic achievement and it really excites me to think we can. But we won’t get carried away, it’s a very competitive league. We just have to knuckle down and keep picking up points.”
Joe Collins and Greg Dear were both on target against Harefield and Berkhamsted, while Andy Shed bagged a brace against the Hares and Ben Hodges completed the scoring.
Holmer visit Tring Athletic this Saturday and host Sun Sports three days later.
