LITTLE Oakley’s goal-scoring machine shows no sign of slowing down but joint-manager Sean Tynan isn’t getting carried away.

The Acorns have scored 20 goals in their first three games of the Essex and Suffolk Border League premier division season, including those fired in their 6-2 home win against much-fancied Tollesbury last weekend.

Oakley now sit on top of the division on nine points, with Gas Recreation in second on the same points and goal difference.

The Acorns take the top spot with more goals scored.

This weekend Oakley face lower table oppostion when they travel to take on Dedham Old Boys.

But Acorns joint-manager Sean Tynan isn’t getting carried away with their early season form and is expecting Dedham to put up stiff resistance.

Tynan said: “I am expecting a hard game against Dedham.

“I have told the lads that they need to perform not just against the top teams but against those down at the lower end as well.

“Although, I think Dedham are in a bit of a false position.

“I have talked to a few people who have played them and they say they are a good side.

“But we are taking it one game at a time and keeping our feet on the floor."
