If you read the statements I made in pre-seasonI said all along that this league would be a completely different prospect for us.

It is a new league to Scarborough Athletic and also a new league to some of our players.

We have brought in some decent lads from the leagues above, with two more in Ryan Williams and Tom Davie making their debuts against Sheffield on Tuesday night.

At the moment it is about trying to do our best and building things up as much as we can.

I have heard a few strange comments from people who have said that there is no difference between this league and the NCEL, but if you look at it, the difference is like black and white.

We are just putting a new side together and yet some of the football we have already played would be enough to make any club proud.

It is a reality check and we have to wait for things to settle down a little more. As I said before, if we have a look after 10 or 15 games then we will know a little more about where we are.

There are loads of positives we can take out of the season so far that the board, the chairman and the most hardcore of fan can see.

The old saying reads that Rome wasn’t built in a day and that is very true.

We are not too disappointed at the moment and things will click into place. Once they do we’ll really kick on.

That is something we are also looking to do in the FA Cup on Saturday when we travel to Team Northumbria in Newcastle.

The game has come at the perfect time after a good performance against Sheffield on Tuesday night when we created plenty of chances.

There are the financial implications of moving through the rounds and plenty of attractive ties lie ahead, though at the moment we won’t be looking past Saturday’s game.

I have already spoken to the players and they are all looking forward to getting going once again in the cup.

We are taking a bus up to the tie as well, so that will give the lads the chance to have plenty of banter and interaction before the big kick off.
