Sun Postal Sports continue to shine as excellent start to Paul Hobbs' reign continues
10:32am Thursday 15th August 2013 in Sport
It is difficult to imagine how Paul Hobbs' rein as manager of Sun Postal could have started any better.
Not content with putting ten unanswered goals past Stony Stratford in the South Midlands Division One opener on Saturday, they followed it up with a 5-1 win at Wodson Park on Wednesday night.
The Bellmount Wood Avenue club only managed 55 goals in 40 league games last season yet they already have 15 to their name, seven of which have been scored by James Armstrong.
The 32-year-old scored 37 league goals last season for Kings Langley and he marked his debut for his new club with a hat-trick on Saturday. He then added another four away at Wodson Park and is revelling playing in a three-pronged attacked alongside Craig Lynskey and former Watford Academy forward Jamie Harper.
Harper scored twice on Saturday, as did Ashley Lewis, while Lynskey found the net in both games, including a stunning free-kick on Wednesday night.
The only downside was the first-half dismissal of Steve Noonan against Wodson Park but that was offset by a penalty save from Ross Hampton and the character Sun showed to play 50 minutes with ten men.
The results have seen Sun set the early pace at the top of the table and they will be looking to make it three wins out of three when they host Chesham United Reserves on Saturday.
"It's very early and we'll look where we are after ten games but I'm very pleased with the start," said Hobbs. "The team have gelled so quickly and the team spirit is fantastic. They look like they have been playing together for years."
