Ollie Sprague and five-year plans

The last three teams whose seven (five-/three)-year plan to get to the Football League were wholly "successful" were the former Scarborough, Maidstone United and Rushden & Diamonds. All three subsequently went out of business, but all have returned as phoenix clubs with varying degrees of success. It is interesting that Dagenham & Redbridge turned down the new Billericay chairman when he was their suitor. Time will tell whether they were wise or foolish.

As for losing Ollie, it is a huge blow, just as the defence was beginning to look more solid. We don’t stand in players’ ways when they wish to move on, so we have to reconcile ourselves to losing players.
