Ardleigh Green will look to continue their prolific form in the final weeks of the season with another victory in their final match when they make the trip to Stanford-le-Hope this weekend.
Captain Lloyd Edwards and his side will go into the match keen to keep chasing down fourth spot in the Shepherd Neame Essex League Division as they currently sit fifth just 16 points behind Woodford Green.
“Well with promotion not possible we set out our aim as to win all the remaining games to get that momentum going into the next season. So far we have achieved three wins from three.
“So to win against Stanford will round our season off nicely with the aim of hitting the ground running next year.
“To chase fourth in the league down would be an achievement as it would mean it’s our highest finish in the league for four years.
“I think Woodford Green is 16 points in front of us as it stands so it could well happen in the last game.”
The skipper also feels his side can play their final match with freedom and try out a few things
“No pressure on us this season anymore, we will play with a lot of freedom as well as trying a couple of things to see where our players are at especially going into next season.
“Most importantly we will want to finish on a high win the game and reflect on, no matter what happens, a successful season and something to build upon for next year.”
He also wanted to praise the club’s second-team after they earnt promotion following an impressive season.
“This year have done a fantastic job in achieving promotion.
“It makes us healthier as a club to have our second team playing as high up the pyramid as they can - It will be perfect for our first team as when needed we know they are able to make the step us also.”
