Let Down By Officiating - 8 March

Flackwell Heath were let down by officiating in last Saturday’s Premier Division defeat to Binfield says manager Marcus Richardson. Writes Danny Varsalona @DannyV_BM in the Windsor Express.

The Heathens were on the end of a narrow 2-1 defeat but Richardson believes the result could have been very different.

“It was disappointing – but I thought the referee bottled it,” Richardson said. “If he stood his ground I think it would have been a different outcome. I had a little reflection on the game and if he sent their player off when he went through my player going one on one it might have been a different game.”

But despite that Richardson admitted his side haven’t been at the races recently in the league and Saturday’s game was another disappointing result. “We haven’t been the best recently – our recent results show that.” Added Richardson “We missed a penalty to go one nil up and if you don’t take your chances and let the other team stay in the game they’ll take their chances.”

It was yet more frustration for the Heathens on Tuesday night, as just seven minutes into their game with Windsor FC a floodlight failure saw the game abandoned. “It was frustrating to be honest – I swapped the squad around to give the fringe players a run in the league.” Richardson said. “They deserved it because they have been playing well in the cup and I thought I’d give them a chance against better opposition.”

The Heathens will be looking to put recent results behind them as they travel to face a tough Bishops Cleeve’s test tomorrow.


Heathens Can Feature In Promotion Race - 22 December

After what he called a ‘topsy-turvy’ start to the campaign, which saw many players come and go, Richardson says the squad are now ‘buying into’ his philosophy, with the team up to seventh in the table. They haven’t played since their 2-0 win at Holmer Green on December 8 after their Floodlit Cup match at Kidlington Development fell foul of the weather on Monday night. They travel to Brimscombe & Thrupp today. They then host Royal Wootton Bassett Town a week on Saturday.

“We’re on a good unbeaten run,” said Richardson (pictured left). “The players have been doing well and are buying into what we’re doing here. I couldn’t ask for any more from them. But the players have to have faith in themselves. If we put a decent run together we won’t be too far away. Look at Ascot United, after a poor spell they’ve managed to find some form again and are now top of the table.“If everyone was to win their games in hand there would probably only be about six points separating top place from 10th.”

The Heathens also now have a date in the diary for their mouth-watering Berks & Bucks Senior Cup clash with Reading FC u23s at Wilks Park on Tuesday, January 22. “It’s a good test for my players, who’re mostly u23s themselves,” added Richardson. “Their (Reading) scouts or coaches might see someone they like, who they think could improve their squad, so it’s a massive opportunity for these boys.”
