Raiders not the finished article yet, says Richman


Rob Richman believes there is room for improvement after North London Raiders A secured their fifth consecutive victory to leapfrog former joint-leaders Camden Park at Capital City.

Goals from Team Maccabi GB star Ricky Engleman and David Dinkin ensured Raiders overcame an in-form Camden in a match where blustery conditions played their part.

Raiders boss Rob Richman told JC Sport: "Five league games and five wins so no complaints so far. The wind made it difficult today, it wasn't the best spectacle but it was pleasing how well we controlled the game, particularly in the second half.

"Camden battled hard but we defended well and that meant Jake Doffman in goal was not tested all morning.

"We could have been a little sharper in our passing and decision-making but that will improve with more games.

"It's been a great start to the season so far but we must make sure we continue this good form every week as we know every game poses its own challenges."

Camden boss Will Castle told JC Sport: "We were beaten by a well-organised Raiders team.

"I thought we were unlucky today - especially with so many players out. We matched them for the first half an hour and gave away a silly goal through lack of concentration on a short corner.

"We defended well and could have nicked a draw but they killed off the game with a lucky windswept shot midway through the second half.

"Unfortunately we were just a bit short today - you know you are in trouble when I end up on the pitch!"
