RAMSEY Town's manager believes his side are more than capable of winning promotion after they racked up another win on Saturday.
Town battled hard to secure a 3-0 victory against Ketton and are now one point clear at the top of the Peterborough League's Jaguar Division 1.
Ramsey are now unbeaten with 12 wins and two draws from their 14 games and Taylor said he believes his side can earn promotion.
"There is still a lot of football to be played before any silverware is handed out," Taylor said. "But the whole club is on the up at the moment and given the position we are in we must be looking to clinch promotion.
"We have more than 40 players turn up to training each week and we have a good structure in place at the club.
"Most of the players are local lads and have come through the youth set-up. There are one or two old heads in the side but the majority are younger lads and that will allow the side to develop."
Against Ketton on Saturday, Town were guilty of some woeful finishing in the first half as many chances went begging and they had to be content to go in at the break all square.
The second half started in a similar pattern but the break finally came on the hour mark when leading marksman Jamie Darlow found room in the box to coolly slide the ball home.
The game then became much more open and Rams were quick to seize the chance to extend their advantage when Joe Thompson picked the ball up 20 yards from goal and rifled an unstoppable shot past the stranded goalkeeper.
With Ramsey's young midfield now buzzing they became more confident and the hosts saw very little of the ball.
The defence, led by captain Stuart Harper, was giving no ground and the Ketton front line looked incapable of putting a goal past a defence that has only conceded nine goals in league matches this season.
A third goal was always on the cards but when it came it was not a classic. Chris Talton found himself on hand and managed to bundle the ball over the line for number three with 10 minutes left.
Ramsey Reserves also had a successful weekend, claiming a 4-2 win at Leverington thanks to two goals from Nick Ransome and one each for Stew Bailey and Michael Cafferkey.
