Lee Milton believes his first full season as a manager can be a memorable one.
The Huntingdon United boss has seen his new-look squad start the Cambs League Division 1B campaign with a bang.
They have recorded back-to-back 4-0 successes - the second of which arrived in a local derby last Saturday against St Ives Rangers.
Two of Milton’s new recruits - former non-league stars Jamie Blackwell and Carl Foreman - were among the goalscorers. Blackwell’s brother, Darren, and last season’s top-scorer, Dom Everett, also found the net.
Milton said: “We’ve made some good additions to the squad and started the season well.
“It looks like being a competitive division featuring a lot of local sides, but it would be ideal if we could challenge for promotion.”
Newly-promoted Houghton & Wyton have also started with a bang at this level. Big signing Will Fordham hit a hat-trick as they thumped Manea 6-1 last Saturday.
