HAVING grown up in Woking, popular goalkeeper, Craig Bradshaw is looking forward to Saturday’s FA Trophy trip to Kingfield Stadium more than most.

“I grew up just 100 yards from Woking’s ground,” revealed the 28 year-old. “So ever since the draw was made, I have been really looking forward to this one.

“I know a lot of their fans, so it adds extra spice to the occasion.

“Although we’re the underdogs, I fancy us. I feel that we are more than capable of going there and getting a result.

“These are the sort of games that you want to be involved in.”

Last weekend’s victory over Staines Town saw ‘Boro enter the top five. “We were a bit flat in the first half,” added Bradshaw. “We had a bit of a kick up the backside at half-time and dominated during the second period.

“The win puts us in a great position in the table to really kick-on.”

Last week the talented custodian put pen-to-paper on an extended deal until the end of the season. “I was delighted to agree a new deal,” he went on. “I really enjoy it at this club; the fans are what make it what it is and it’s a great club to be involved with.

“The deal allows me to concentrate on my football. I’m not one to set myself targets; you can be a bit hard on yourself if you do that, in my opinion.

“This is a team game and I’d like to think that if one of my centre halves makes a mistake, I will be there to bail them out and likewise if I make an error, there will be one of my defenders on hand to do the same.”
