BEN DIL­LON is hop­ing for some more hero­ics from his Hart­ley Wint­ney play­ers this sea­son.

The Row made it to the fourth qual­i­fy­ing round of the FA Cup last year for the first time in their 116-year his­tory be­fore los­ing to Daventry Town.

With a pun­ish­ing fix­ture list to end last sea­son, Dil­lon’s men fin­ished seventh but with the new cam­paign fast ap­proach­ing, the boss is hop­ing for a run at pro­mo­tion this time around.

“We had a lot of games to catch up on at the end last sea­son be­cause of the FA Cup run and the weather so it doesn’t feel like we’ve had much time off,” the player/ boss said.

“We’ve only lost one player from last sea­son in Sam Ar­gent who has moved higher to play for Basingstoke so we’ve kept the fan­tas­tic team spirit we had which is great as there was a lot of in­ter­est.

“I thought we could go for pro­mo­tion last year but we’ll be look­ing at the top five again and you never know, we could chal­lenge for the top two.”
