WINDSOR manager Mark Cooper believes his team can have a more successful second half to the season in the Hellenic League Premier Division, writes Rob Stevens.

The Royalists secured 22 points in the first half of the campaign and currently stand in 15th position in the table – just two points behind the top 10 and five off Bishops Cleeve in seventh place.

Another Saturday without a fixture will leave all involved with the club frustrated again this weekend but Cooper hopes to use the time to improve the team and potentially add two new signings to the squad.

He told the Observer: “We’re happier now with the squad and that’s what is disappointing. You become relatively pleased with the squad moving forward but then you get a night like we had in midweek (3-0 defeat at home against Flackwell Heath).

“After 18 games gone, we knew that we were happy with the squad. We had 22 points after the first 18 games and obviously in the back 18 we want to improve on that. We still believe we can very much improve upon the first half of the season.

“We don’t want to make too many changes to the squad now but one or two will come in and one or two will go out.

“We’ve got a fairly settled squad but are looking to add two more over the next 10 days and then that should be us hopefully.”

Cooper added: “Breaks come at the wrong times because we want to keep on playing games. We have no Saturday fixture again which is a reflection of this league, but we will use the time to try and shape what we will do in weeks to come.”
