*'We have given ourselves a platform to build on and with the same drive we can accomplish our goal' - by Chris Cresswell*
PUBLISHED: 8th Feb 18

After a short break in the fixture list, Captainís Log returns with skipper Darren Carter in buoyant mood as the club heads into February after a stunning start to 2018. This week Carts talks about the forthcoming fixtures, the departure of Dapo and some exciting arrivals.

To say it has been a satisfactory start to 2018 is a little bit of an understatement!

Weíve managed to put together a fine run of results that sees us right back in the mix.

It is tribute to the hard work and commitment shown by everybody at the club to all pull in the same direction and get this club back on the right track. The task at hand is still a very tough one but we have given ourselves a platform to build on and with the same drive we can accomplish our goal.

Our last outing at Dagenham showed how far we have come as a squad, it was as good an away win as there is in this game. We were solid defensively and then at the other end we looked very dangerous. That was obviously helped by the arrival Adi Yussuf. As debuts go you canít make a much better impact than Adi did, scoring a brace and being a real threat all game. Add to that the loan signing of Opi Edwards and Alex Reid our attacking options look very good.

On the flip side it was sad to see Dapo say his goodbyes last week as he secured his fantastic move to the Premier League with West Ham. I know how highly Dapo was regarded at the club and rightly so. His progression as a player over the last 18 months warranted a lot of interest from other clubs and to see someone given the opportunity he has, is refreshing and an incentive to others at National League level and below that the big boys are watching and youíre always in the spotlight!

Looking ahead the fixtures continue to look challenging but we are in very good spirits and confidence is high so we approach them with a real intent and focus. Ebbsfleet away provides our first test, they have had a very solid season after gaining promotion last year and we know what awaits us down in Kent.

The following weekend sees a double header at home with high flying Dover and Wrexham visiting the ATG stadiumwithin four days of each other. This is exactly the test we will cherish at this stage of the season. Points are at a premium for everyone and what a chance for us to put in performances against the leagueís best on our own patch.

Finally it was a little weird to have last weekend free due to the Bromley game rearrangement. I always find it difficult to switch off on aSaturdayif Iím not playing myself and it was no different last weekend. I managed to get some conditioning work in alongside some rest and recharge the body ready for what will certainly be a crucial final third of the season.

Once again I thank you for your incredible support, the upturn in form is not only down to the players and staff but you as fans too! You play your part whether thatís at the ATG or up and down the country. Together we can continue our push and get this club up the table.
