Crusaders Are Up For Their Latest Challenge

Hungerford’s manager may describe the last 12 months as a “miracle season” but he hopes for more of the season when the new one kicks off.

Hungerford, who play a young Reading side this afternoon, have just come off the back of their highest ever finish.

They ended 6th in the Vanarama National League South and boss Bobby Wilkinson couldn’t have been prouder.

Though he accepts it is going to be difficult to repeat the trick, Wilkinson wants to give it his best shot.

“We came very close to finishing in the top five last season, which when you look at where the club has come from in the last few years in unbelievable.

“We know it will be difficult to repeat what we achieved last season but we’re happy with where we’re at. We had a great year last year and we were so unlucky to miss out.

“That doesn’t mean we won’t try thought – we’re already looking forward to getting the league season under way.”

It’s a tough start for Hungerford, away to Dartford. Then they have home games against Weston-Super-Mare and Hemel Hempstead Town.

“It’s a tough start, Dartford are rightly one of the favourites to win it,” Wilkinson suggests. “But we just want to be competitive.

“It’ll be an even bigger challenge next season but we’re always up for a challenge.”
