LITTLE Oakley assistant manager James Good believes the best is yet to come from his inform Acorns.

The club are reflecting on a memorable fortnight in which they defeated neighbours Harwich and Parkeston in the Essex Senior Cup before putting seven past shell-shocked Wormley Rovers on Saturday.

They followed it up with a hard-earned 2-1 victory against Brightlingsea Regent Reserves on Tuesday.

Oakley have won four of their six Thurlow Nunn League first division south matches so far - a trend they will hope to continue at Benfleet tomorrow (kick-off 3pm).

However, Good, who works alongside manager Matt Carmichael, believes his side will only get better and stronger as they become more consistent within individual games.

"We said at the start of the season that we wanted to get momentum behind us, picking up wins wherever possible," he said.

"That's exactly what we've done, although there's still room for improvement.

"Genuinely, I don't think we've fully clicked yet, apart from Saturday.

"Instead, it feels like we've been operating at 60, 70 or 80%.

"Winning when playing badly isn't a bad trait to have but there's a lot more to come and that bodes well.

"We've got a fairly new squad and we're trying new things.

"We're playing well in spurts but if we can become more consistent, we'll become a very hard side to beat."

Saturday's 7-0 victory will live long in the memory and there were two goals apiece for Luke Mayhew, Greg Rodger and Harry Mann.

It was an exceptional result against opposition that started the day sitting second, having previously won four out of four and not conceded a goal.

"The games are coming thick and fast at the moment and you just have to pick up points wherever you can," said Good, whose side are second in the table behind early pacesetters Halstead Town.

"With that in mind, it's been a pretty good seven days for us, especially when you throw in last week's cup win against Harwich.

"Wormley had won four out of four and not conceded a goal, prior to Saturday.

"Again, it was 2-0 at half-time but in the second half we really stepped it up. It could have been eight, nine or ten.

"It was a very good afternoon and when that front three click, we know we can cause problems for anyone.

"Luke, Greg and Harry were unplayable at times and they're a huge asset for us."

Mayhew and Rodger were on target again in Tuesday's victory against Regent.

Both goals were scored in the first half, before the visitors pulled one back after the break.

"We started the game well, created decent chances and their keeper made some good saves," added Good.

"At 2-0, we knew the next goal was going to be very important and credit to Brightlingsea. It went to them.

"After that we went through the motions a bit but dug deep when we needed to and three points was always the main objective."

Oakley play host to Holland FC in the Essex Senior Cup on Tuesday before a Friday night fixture at May and Baker on September 20.
