SUPERSTITIOUS Ilminster Town boss Darren Manley is refusing to get carried away with things — despite his side romping to a 7-1 victory on Saturday.

Ilminster are second in the table and remain unbeaten after seven games.

And although Manley has said he is delighted with the impressive start to the season, he is not going to say too much about his side’s chances of glory this season.

“I’m really superstitious and I don’t want to say too much about it,” he said. “I’m just going to take each game as it comes.

“We’ve got to keep our feet on the ground and be realistic.

“Obviously I’m pleased with our start, but we’ve only played seven games — there is a long way to go.”

Ilminster raced into a 4-0 lead by half-time with goals from Sam Maxwell (two), Sam Spurway and Chris Nezianya.

Will Spurway made it 5-0 before Radstock got their consolation.

Mike McCormack made it 6-1 with a fine individual goal and then the Blues completed the impressive victory with a well-worked team move which was finished off by Nezianya for his second of the game.

And Manley said: “Everything went right for us on Saturday and I was really happy.

“It could have been more, but their keeper pulled off some tremendous saves.”

Ilminster are at home to Nailsea Town on Saturday and will be hoping to maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

“This is going to be a tricky game because I think Nailsea are going to be one of the teams to beat this season,” added Manley.
