 Words from Brantham Athletic first team manager Paul Abrahams taken from the match day programme for Saturday October 25th when Brantham faced Mildenhall Town.
"Not even into November and by the end of the week we would have faced three of our Thurlow Nunn rivals home and away .I'm sure the league fixture committee have its reasons. After completing a convincing 6-0 home win against Wivenhoe last month, the first completed double we now face return fixtures against Mildenhall and FC Clacton. Starting with Mildenhall we will be looking to get back to winning ways in the league.
We haved drawn Whitton away in the quarter finals of the Suffolk Premier Cup.
The victory at Hadleigh saw us advance in the Prem.Cup and was one of our most rounded performances of the season. Concentration levelsl were high for the majority and energy levels were vastly improved. Hadleigh are as a strong side as there is at our our level and we thoroughly deserved the victory on the night.
Jamie Beecham,JK and Paddi Hawkins (debut) all starting the game as we fielded the youngest BAFC team seen for many a year.
Jack Cawley was exception .as were all the the back four of Manny, Trav and Speno, between them they limited the Thurlow Nunn highflyers to very little in the tie. However, the performance and result for me and my coaching staff is a double edged sword and further highlighted the infurating inconsistency we are showing this season.
That said and on reflection, we still have a very inexperienced squad, we continue to learn and remain hugely positive about the future.
Tough luck for goal machine Ollie Mann. After making fantastic progress in his long term recovery programme , O-Mann suffered a fractured wrist in the home  fixture against Newmarket. On the back of seven goals in as many days and a hat trick against Thetford and a very strong Norwich Utd, this local legend is again sidelined for another six weeks. Ollie has made a real difference to the team as his fitness levels improve.  In recent weeks his goals have seen a change in fortune for the team. Ollie has a strong mind and a steely determination to get back playing to the highest level and so this latest setback is purely temporary. O-Mann should be back to terrorising defenders in time for our Vase game on November 22nd.
Another young local talent joins BAFC. Suffolk under 18's  goalkeeper Paddi Hawkins joined us from AFC Sudbury.Paddi is a young and promising keeper who has been excellent for Paul Skingley's under 18's in recent weeks and we moved fast to bring Paddi in and make him part of our senior setup.
Our instincts were right as he starred in then 1-0 win at Hadleigh and kept only our third clean sheet of the season.
Paddi joins Jamie Beecham, Jourdan Kiwomya and Harry Mann who at 17 have all played a key part in the progress of the team this season, as we build for the future.
Paul Abrahams.
