BURNHAM manager Paul Shone admits he could not have asked for any more from his side after a 4-1 win away at Chalvey Sports in the Hellenic League Subsidiary Cup on Tuesday.

An early goal from captain Ryan Hazell gave Chalvey the lead in the Group Stage match at Arbour Park, but Ashley Watson and Ollie Harris both scored either side of the break to secure victory for the visitors.

Shone told the Observer: "There were a few outstanding individual displays, Ollie was brilliant in scoring his two goals, but the team performance in the second-half was good.

"Chalvey passed it really well in the first 15-20 minutes. They gave us a game and deservedly went ahead.

"Our fitness and quality came through after half an hour and we went into half-time with a lead and probably deservedly so.

"We were outstanding from 1-11 in the second half, plus the lads that came on from the bench as well, so it's very pleasing."

The victory means Burnham have now won their last nine matches in all competitions and Shone explained his players are all buying into the motto of trying to win competitions while they are still in them.

He said: "We said right from day one we need a squad to achieve what we're trying to this season, with extra cup games as well this year. The squad is big and healthy and we're all chomping at the bit.

"We made nine changes from last weekend and they all put in a performance and shift that puts them in the window to be selected for this Saturday.

"They're all buying into it at the moment and it helps when you're winning as well, so I couldn't ask for any more really."

Burnham moved up to second position in Hellenic Division One East after a 1-0 win against Wallingford Town on Saturday.

A goal in the second-half from Dan Molloy was the difference between the two sides at The Gore.

Shone commented: "There was only one team in it in the first half. We were outstanding and passed the ball really well.

"Credit to Wallingford as they came with a gameplan and changed their system in the second-half to play with three up front. That made a game of it but without our keeper really having to make a save.

"Wallingford had a half-chance right at the end but we deserved the 1-0 win, which looks a tight affair but, based on the first half, we could've been out of sight.

"It's another win in the league and another three points, so it's good."

He added: "We've said that some teams will come and defend for their lives and that's something that will ask questions of the boys.

"We've had to do that in the two 1-0 wins. That's another learning curve for the boys and they're doing it well.

"Some of the youngsters that are coming into the side are learning, and we're just adding quality to the team when we can and in the right areas, so long may it continue."
