Whatever happens, it has been a remarkable season Braintree Town. After finishing finally in the National Little league, the team of part timers managed by a PE Teacher transformed Grimsby Town 1-0 to take a slender lead into and what will be unquestionably the biggest game in the clubs history this Saturday. Braintree were playing Isthmian Little league Football 10 years ago, before consolidating their position in the Conference South and achieving promotion to the Conference National in 2010/2011.
Finishing finally above former football little league clubs Tranmere, Macclesfield and Wrexham, The Iron’s success has been built on a determined ‘siege mentality’ and robust support, with a goal difference of +18 comfortably the lowest within the play off places. Last night of glory was their 22nd clean linen of the little league season achieved on a meagre 25% on ownership. Only Cheltenham, who won the little league at a canter (101 points, 12 points from 2nd place! ) had fewer goals conceded.
To say that Braintree closed up shot would be a huge disservice, with players such as Simeon Akinola and Michael Cheek offering sparkle in attack. Kenny Davis, who has a Charlie Adam like capacity to appear significantly more than his age would suggest, has cracked in 7 goals from support. Although Braintree’s budget would indicate they are hugely overachieving following years of lower-middle table finishes, the mood Danny Cowley has installed within the camp would suggest that anything is possible — his capacity to take the team on to another level has enhanced his status as one of the most talented young administrators in the lower echelons of the football pyramid. The popular goal at Guiseley in February, although costing them points, has been used to solidify the squads belief — the players ascertained that the changing room was cleaned and left immaculate facing huge frustration. “We do things properly at Braintree Town” said Cowley — quite right too.
As most of us have dropped fond of Leicester’s achievements this year, it would be a huge disservice not to credit Braintree town if he or she achieve what was perceived to be impossible and turn into football little league club — and best of all, they will not have to make the trip up to the sporting chaps at Guiseley again.
Unlike in the EPL where the TV money is shared smoothly, the La Liga pot is most taken by Barca and Real leaving all of those other teams to feast upon leftovers ทีเด็ดเซียน. Ronaldo and Messi only score 50+ goals a season happens because most teams are insolvent and can barely afford to pay their staff never mind buy quality the standard of player for example Cabaye or Payet like Palace and Western side Pork did this year. When you know Barca and Real are likely going to win 5-0 per week where is the excitement? Without Atletico right now or Valencia and Deportivo before them La Liga isn’t even worth following, just find out at the end of the season who won from the big two and watch a you tube video of Messi/Ronaldo/Suarez/Neymar’s best goals.
