It’s fair to say it’s been a great start.

The Farsley and Burscough games were completely different but both satisfying.

On Saturday we controlled the game from start to finish.

We’d put things together in fits and starts during pre-season but it all came together on Saturday.

We started well, got the goals we deserved and saw the game out well.

On Tuesday at Burscough we were really poor in the first half. Quite a lot of us looked a little bit jaded and tired.

They were a few stern words from the gaffer (Darren Peacock) at half-time and a rocket up the backside and it made the difference.

Once we got it back to 2-1 you could feel the energy in the lads and when that became 2-2 there was only going to be one winner.

Over the last couple of years if we’ve started like that then we’ve crumbled.

So to come back like we did might make it even more satisfying than Saturday.

The games are coming thick and fast with a trip to Radcliffe Borough on Saturday before Clitheroe come to Giant Axe on Bank Holiday Monday.

It demands a lot of the squad but confidence is high at the moment and we’ll go into both games hoping for good results.

We want the games to keep coming. The winning feeling makes a real difference.

I woke up on Wednesday morning after the Burscough game and didn’t even feel tired going to work because I still had a bit of a buzz from the comeback.

Long may it continue.
