Hamworthy boss, Tim Sills, believes the club can push for promotion this season as the club's impressive start to the campaign continues.

Hamworthy United have extended their unbeaten start to the league campaign to eight games following a 3-0 win over AFC Portchester on Saturday.

Two Max Wilcock goals, sandwiched either side of a Jack Lovell tap-in, secured the win at the County Ground leaving the Hammers sixth on 20 points. The Hammers have only played eight games and could go top if they win their games in hand.

Having started in such a positive fashion this season, Hammers manager, Tim Sills, is pleased with the direction his side is heading in.

Speaking exclusively to NERVE SPORT, he said: “Obviously last year, when it all got curtailed [the season], we started really well and we put ourselves under pressure a little bit for the start of this season.

“But we started equally well this season and tried to carry on that momentum.

“We are eight games in with six wins and two draws and if anything we are disappointed with those draws, which is a good sign.”

Sills also revealed the team has improved defensively and that it is an important part of the team's current success.

“We are proving a lot more resilient in terms of not conceding and if you can do that and give yourself a real solid base to go and attack with, that is the key to it going forward,” he continued.

The weekend’s game against Portchester was the team’s “best performance of the season” according to the Hamworthy boss and he suggested there is no reason why the club should not be ambitious this year and strive for promotion.

“Looking at last year, and how it finished when it curtailed, we were ambitious then and there is no reason why we shouldn’t be ambitious now,” he explained.

“You could not go into a season with the squad we have and be looking at anything other than promotion.

“We know it is not going to be easy, there will be lots of twists and turns and there are a lot of very good sides in this league.

“It’s a real tough ask to get out of this league this year, but we are in a good position at the moment to kick on and try and go up.”
