Hall ‘improving game by game’
Mildenhall Town manager Dean Greygoose is pleased with the progress his side are making after Saturday’s 1-0 win over FC Clacton.
Matty Waters struck the winner at Recreation Way to secure consecutive home wins for the first time since September, and help maintain Mildenhall’s rise up the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division table (10th).
“We are improving game-by-game,” said Greygoose. “I’m pleased with how we are progressing.
“Clacton (18th) are struggling and worked really hard, which made it a nerve-racking last few minutes.”
Bottom-placed Ely City are next up for Hall, but Greygoose isn’t taking anything for granted when he takes his side to the Unwin Sports Ground tonight (7.45pm).
“They are another hard-working side who are fighting for their lives,” explained the Mildenhall boss. “We need to start getting a better consistency in our results.
“At the moment it’s win, loss, win, loss.”
Elsewhere Thetford Town (14th) ended their five match winless run with a 1-0 victory over Ipswich Wanderers at the weekend, courtesy of James Dean’s header 10 minutes into the second-half.

In the First Division, two late goals denied Stowmarket Town a memorable victory at title-chasing Saffron Walden Town at the weekend.
The Old Gold and Blacks went ahead through Josh Cheetham’s 59th-minute strike, which put the home side’s 21 match unbeaten run in the league under serious jeopardy.
However Walden equalised from a corner on 75 minutes, before Spike Bell’s 84th minute header from a long throw stole the points away from the visitors.
Stow boss Rick Andrews said: “You don’t always get what you deserve out of football. We dealt with 99 per cent of the long throws and it was the 1 per cent where we didn’t that cost us.”
Team Bury hope play at home for the first time in 2015 when March Town United visit Ram Meadow tomorrow (3pm).
