Hailsham Town boss Kenny McCreadie is a happy man.

His side are undefeated in the league and in the last three games they have scored 12 goals and conceded none.

Fans and players alike are enjoying the football being played and many are tipping the Stringers, who top the division two table, to cruise to the title.

But McCreadie warned, “I’m happy being top, that’s where I like to be but nothing is won yet. We have had a great first month of the season and things are looking good.

“The trick is to keep it going and not get complacent.”

Hailsham welcome East Preston to the Beaconsfield on Saturday and the boss hopes to bolster his squad in time for the match against the visitors who are second in the table.

Preston are a strong outfit this season, they have many players from last year’s Wick side and have won four from their five matches losing just once. McCreadie’s men lead the way on goal difference.

The boss added, “We hope to bring in five players in time for Saturday. Two will likely go into the reserves but three will be competing for first team places.

“We are hoping to sign two from Hastings which will be good news for us. The time to strengthen is when you are doing well.”

While the goals have been flying in courtesy of Danny Leach and Shane Saunders the defence has also been tight.

Russ Tanner’s goal has been breached just four times this season and that is something that delights McCreadie.

“Shane and Danny will get us goals all day long but we are defending much better now.

“What pleases me is that we look fitter and stronger in the final stages of the matches.

“It’s back to how we used to be.”
