Fuff focused on silverware with Neots

SAINTS stalwart Glen Fuff is targeting a dream end to what is potentially looking like St Neots Town’s most memorable campaign ever.

SAINTS stalwart Glen Fuff is targeting a dream end to what is potentially looking like St Neots Town’s most memorable campaign ever.

Veteran centre-half Fuff, who turns 35 in March, says he would love to cap a fine semi-pro career by leading the side out at Wembley in May in the final of the FA Vase – but only once they have been crowned United Counties League Premier Division champions.

Speaking to The Hunts Post this week, the St Neots captain said: “The priority is to win the league and get up to the next level, as the club needs to be progressing up the leagues.

“But the FA Vase is a nice distraction and there’s no reason why we can’t go on and do really well.

“It would be lovely to have won the league and then finish it off with a Wembley final at the end of the season.”

Ironically, Fuff could lift the UCL trophy at the expense of King’s Lynn, where he was a cult hero during six seasons with the Linnets and was named their player of the season four times.

In October 2007, Fuff shattered his left leg in four places while playing for Cambridge City but, with his career seemingly in tatters, he recovered and joined St Neots in March 2009 after a short spell at Soham Town Rangers.

Reflecting on Saints’ stunning unbeaten start to the league campaign that has seen them smash 83 goals in just 20 games - boasting a goal difference of +75 - Fuff said: “Things have been going really well.

“For the first few weeks, we had a few new players and a few draws but have got stronger as the season has progressed.

“The likes of Shane Tolley, Stefan Moore and Dan Jacob are all quality players and could play in the league above and if not the next one above that as well.

“So when you’ve got that sort of quality at your disposal, you expect to score a few goals over the course of the season.”

But, when asked if continuing to break records is something he and the players are targeting, Fuff remained philosophical.

“It doesn’t matter if you win 1-0 or 13-0, it’s still only three points at the end of the day,” he said.

“We want to win every game from now until the end of the season, but we’ll just be taking it one game at a time.

“It’s good to turn on the style here, there and everywhere but, ultimately, it’s just about winning the league.”
