Shone won't set limits on what Burnham can achieve this season

Oliver Harris


Paul Shone has said he won’t put limits on what Burnham can achieve this season after Tuesday’s 1-0 win over Windsor.

It was the Blues’ second successive league win and moves them up to 15th in the Hellenic Premier Division.

However, Shone is confident they’ve now turned the corner and he is targeting a top half finish at the very minimum.

There were positives for both sides to take from Tuesday, with Windsor taking baby steps in the right direction after hefty defeats to Binfield (5-0) and Eastbourne Town (7-1) last week.

Oliver Harris netted the game’s only goal in the eighth minute but Burnham could have won more comfortably with substitute Aaron Berry seeing his second half penalty saved by Nojus Trinovas.

“The scoreline could have been more healthy,” he said. “But you still get three points whether it’s 1-0 or 4-0. It was a deserved three points and definitely needed.

“We created a lot of chances but kept a clean sheet and that’s our second one on the spin now. All season we’ve defended well and been hard to beat but we’ve lacked a cutting edge in the final third at times.”

The Blues will be looking to make it three straight wins when they travel to Royal Wootton Bassett Town on Saturday and, for the first time this season, they’ve got some momentum behind them.

“I’m not looking at the table at the moment,” Shone said. “We’ve got another tough one at Wootton Bassett on Saturday where we’ll look to pick up three points.

“We won’t put limits on what we can do. If we can get into the top six after the start we’ve had that won’t be a bad season.”
