Clanfield will be chasing more derby glory when they face Hampshire Premier League rivals Fleetlands on Saturday.

Manager Stuart Wallis guided the Peel Park side to their biggest senior division win of the season so far, as they crushed Paulsgrove 6-1 last weekend.

His men are sitting third in the league and will hope to continue their good form at home on Saturday.

Wallis said: ‘Fleetlands always give us a tough game.

‘The 6-1 win over Paulsgrove gave us a lift.

‘We have improved on where we were this time last season and the team has more confidence and belief.’

Locks Heath head the table but Colden Common and AFC Stoneham have games in hand.

It’s shaping up to be an exciting battle at the top and Clanfield are right in the thick of it after winning 11 of their 15 matches so far.

Wallis knows his team must keep their focus as they still have to play Locks Heath and Colden Common twice and AFC Stoneham at home.

He added: ‘In the past, we have been slow starters and done well after Christmas.

‘But this season we will be looking to finish strongly after starting strongly.

‘We have kept the squad together from last season which has helped us and we are looking to bring in a couple of new players.’
