Turn back the clock 2 years - see the progress we have made. Some in-difference, that happens. As for the game, well, you can't turn up with a decimated line-up and expect miracles. The lads performed beyond expectations.
I was constantly reminded of an away day at Billericay today - at least style wise with Sutton. If that's the pre-requisite for the Football League then Billers are indeed on track. To make comparisons is unfair given where we are, but having said that I maintain you can now at least draw parallels. It may have been referenced previously as to the necessary targets, but I felt the real positive today was the confirmation that their is no real fundamental disconnect. You can get caught up in short-termism.
There's a lot of developments, financially and in terms of on-field modifications up for grabs.
There were obvious inherent limitations today, I believe somewhat beyond that of absentees, but nonetheless you can garner a true sense that we are moving forward.
Today, we lost a game of football, we've made progress, it will continue to be hard-fought but for the first time in decades we are clearly going in the right direction. It's testimony, on field, to Gary and his staff. A glimpse into the future. I believe there's growing conviction that Hendon could hold there own at a higher level. This would have somewhat been questioned at the last play-off participation. We are gaining underlying strength.
That, I believe is a perception that will continue to consolidate.
Keep going - starting with the next outing.
