A hard fought win in this ‘away’ game against London Tigers finally, and not before time, put us back on the winning trail as we come to the end of what has been a long, hard, learning curve of a season.

The match – although officially an away match – was played at Second Meadow because of unforeseen issues with London Tigers’ venue.

With just one league match left to play we can – depending on other results – still finish as high as seventh in the table and are guaranteed, come what may, to finish no lower than the ninth place we currently occupy.

With a return of just four points from an available 18, I won’t pretend that our run in has been anything other than disappointing and the dropping of heads because of a lack of targets in the final straight is certainly something we are going to have to address.

But at least we are back to winning ways and can console ourselves with the thought that although we are clearly still a work in progress we have at Biggleswade United coaching of the highest calibre that will ensure we eventually get this club where it wants to be.

I have never doubted it for a second. Mark my words, we will prevail.

I am so proud of how are Academy is progressing and it is a tribute not just to its members but to the parents of the boys and girls and our excellent coaches who provide the highest standard of training as they battle continually to get the best possible facilities for the youngsters in their charge.

We owe it to all of them to be the very best we possibly can.

Academy chief Fran Constancio has organised a special invitation Round Robin set of matches for our girls’ teams and three other local girls sides on Saturday week (May 6) plus we also have a League Cup final for our Under 15 girls to look forward to on May 13 the details of which will follow next week.

And If you want to see if we can help make you become the best player you can be, we will be holding senior trials on Wednesday May 3 at 7:30 at Second Meadow to which everyone is invited. Please contact Sam.Goodman@biggleswadeunited.com

But first things first and the small matter of our last league game at Wembley this weekend (Sat ko 3pm) before on Tuesday night (ko 7:45) we turn our attention to trying to win some silverware when we meet old rivals Stotfold in the final of the North Beds Charity Cup at Forde Park, Langford.

Hopefully we will be able to end the season on a high note with some silverware that we can put on display at our end of season Presentation Night on May 13. Come and join us.

See you there
