BROXBOURNE waited two months for a league win and then two came along in quick succession.
Despite battling illness this week, manager Geoff CVell was still able to raise a smile thanks to his team coming back into form. Everything went right, even in the goalkeeping department, where, despite losing keepers Ed Thompson and Allan Buck to work commitments, striker Junior Adeoye (pictured) has proved a surprisingly good stand-in between the sticks. "We've been missing players for the last few weeks, including Dean Williams for three games and we've missed his experience," CVell told the Mercury. "When we've got everyone available we've got the quality to keep the ball and do well.
"Junior has done well in goal. We've got five goalkeepers on our books, but they all struggle with work commitments. Junior volunteered and he's done well. We've won both matches - although he does give me heart attacks when he dribbles in the box!" CVell has also made three new signings, in attacker
Fraser John, who was at local rivals St Margaretsbury, winger Pietro Quarsie and Brentwood Town's left-sided player Luke Croll. Quarsie made a big impact on Tuesday night as Broxbourne beat London Tigers.
Boro' were a goal down at the break, having allowed Terence Cariba to drive home a shot two minutes before the end of the half. Five minutes into the second half Quarsie played in Jordan Watson who managed to stay on his feet despite a foul in the box. As the ball ran off the pitch, the linesman flagged for a penalty and Chris Doyle struck it home. Fifteen minutes later, Quarsie was put through by Doyle and smashed a shot in. The result was sealed 10 minutes from time when Watson stroked home. On Saturday, Broxbourne beat Tring Athletic 3-1 with goals from Williams, Quarsie and John. This Saturday, they travel to in-form Colney Heath.
