Stuart Wardley admitted he is “delighted” with the season so far but knows there is still a job to do.

With 10 games remaining in the Thurlow Nunn First Division, Saffron Walden Town are top of the league by two points and have a game in hand over second-placed Long Melford.

“I’m delighted with the boys’ performances this season,” he said. “Their attitude to everything has been first class.”

There are regrets though; the manager believes the race could already been over if they hadn’t draw three of their last five games. “If we win those games then it could be over, but we’ll pick ourselves up for the final 10 games,” he said.

“We were flying at the start of the season. We’re on a great run but we’ve picked up a few silly draws; apart from that I can’t praise the boys highly enough.

“I just need that bit extra from them to get us over the line and earn promotion.”
