As we head to the business end of the season, Simon Wright takes a look at the Southern League Premier Division. What exactly will it take to lift the title? Will the number of points needed be similar to that of recent seasons?
|Southern League Premier Champions Last 5 Years|
Remember all those comments last season about Step 4. “Its all too easy, rather boring, be so glad to get into a more competitive League.” We’re now in a League where if the Bulls switch off they will get punished. But as we know our boys are remarkably consistent and rarely switch off. Lapses happen – to every club.
We’re spoilt at Edgar Street and we are very used to winning. So, each defeat is a shock, but surely nothing to be concerned about. Frenzies of finger pointing and blame culture aren’t helpful for one of the most consistent successful clubs in the top 7 levels.
The wider context is still very, very bright for Hereford FC. Take a look at the record of the last 5 Champions in our Division. Other than Hemel’s extraordinary goal scoring, improving on all the other stats looks very do-able for us. Notice in particular the number of defeats. All Champions have bad days at the office.
