Clapton first-team coach Amin Levitt is looking forward to facing Essex Senior League new boys Saffron Walden this evening.

The Tons will play host to The Wardens at the Old Spotted Dog as they look to build on their strong start to the new campaign.

Levitt is backing the squad to start pushing on and praised the depth they have to choose from ahead of the clash.

“We are looking forward to it, I think we’ve got a lot of players back, and we’ll be putting out a strong side.

“Our squad is very strong, there are a lot of players that haven’t even been picked for the 16, and will consider themselves a bit unlucky.

“We’re getting a decent squad together so we’ve just got to see what happens.”

The former Bowers & Pitsea coach believes the side need some stability and to get themselves on a bit of a run.

“We need some stability, the boys have been working hard in training with myself, Colin Reed and Jon Fowell.

“They’ve been working hard so I’m sure we’ll get a few results together and we’ll get on a run then who knows what can happen.”

Levitt says they will not worry about what threat their opponents pose and will just concentrate on their own performance.

“We don’t know a lot about them but you know at the end of the day we’ve really got to worry about ourselves more than Saffron Walden.

“If we play well then it will take a good side to beat us, we’re trying to get the side organised and get a good shape.”
