Eastbourne Town boss Danny Bloor believes Richard Greenfield is starting to show his true potential after an impressive run in the side.

Greenfield , 24 has proved a key player in the Town side this season and everytime Bloor has selected the pacey winger, he has scored or created a goal.

Last Saturday, during their impressive home 3-0 victory against highflying Chipstead, Greenfield did both.

Ahead of Saturday’s trip to Ryman League division one south strugglers Tooting and Mitcham, Bloor said, “Richard is a player I have had at Burgess Hill, Worthing and now Eastbourne Town.

“He is having a good run at the moment and starting to show what he can do.

“He is a player who thrives on confidence and when you give him that he can deliver performances like he has done.

“Every game he has started this season he has scored or created a goal. As a manager you can’t ask for more than that.

“Many people thought Sam Crabb would have the wide right role but Richard has been doing very well.

“Garry (Wilson) has watched him three times now and has been very impressed.

“He has certainly set the standard and hopefully he can keep it up.”

Against Chipstead the Town fans gave the team and the management a standing ovation.

Bloor was delighted with the response but was also quick to praise the backroom staff.

He added, “It was certainly very pleasing and it was great to receive a reaction like that from the fans.

“Although we have done nothing as yet. It is only October and we have to keep doing the right things.

“I am delighted with how everything is progressing. Off the pitch we are well organised and that is thanks to the likes of Barry Hobbs and Garry Newton.

“They have been tremendous with things such as travel arrangements.

“It allows us to manage and the players to concentrate on playing.”

Of Tooting, Bloor added, “We are expecting a tough match. The league tables mean nothing at the moment.”
