Tooting & Mitcham’s interim manager Jamie Martin says last weekend’s 2-1 win over Ramsgate is a sign the Terrors are turning a corner.
Carl Wilson-Dennis and Solomon Karl Pinnock scored the goals that gave the Terrors their first win in the Ryman League Division One South in six attempts.
According to Martin it was a dominant display, and the confidence gained saw Wilson-Dennis score again on Tuesday night to hold Burgess Hill 1-1.
Martin said: “The three new lads [Jamie Lawrence, Anthony Joseph and Adam Thompson] are now the spine of the side, which has been missing before now. Adam in central defence was immense.
“The three of them are leaders with the experience to match it and you need that in this division.”
However, Martin is still not happy with his squad, which goes to Walton & Hersham this weekend.
“I am not 100 per cent there yet. There is at least one more position we need to strengthen. I’m looking to bring in one or two and then we’ll be there.”
He added: “When I took over the role, I told the chairman to judge me after the first two games after which I can make the changes. Now we’ve done that, I really feel we’ve almost turned the corner.”
