FC CLACTON boss Tom Austin admits his players are “flying” after soaring into the top-half of the Thurlow Nunn League table.

The tenth-place Seasiders are unbeaten in three premier division fixtures after coming from behind to defeat Thetford Town 3-1 at the Rush Green Bowl on Saturday.

To add to the feelgood factor, they are also still going strong in both the FA Vase and League Challenge Cup.

Austin admits it is a very happy camp and was delighted to put three more points on the board on Saturday.

Clacton were trailing at half-time but staged a great comeback with an own goal added to strikes from Matt Eve and Jack Clampin.

“We’re on a nice little run at the moment and hopefully we can keep this momentum going as long as possible,” said Austin.

“For the first 20 to 25 minutes, Thetford were the better side on Saturday.

“But from then on we started to get the ball down and play.

“At half-time we spoke about moving it quicker, playing more one and two-touch passes, and it really worked.

“We were flying, totally dominated and definitely deserved to win.

“It was an important victory and one that puts us where we want to be - into the top half of the table.

“There were some strong individual performances.

“Matt Eve has done particularly well in the last couple of games and it was nice to see him score again.

“Jack Clampin has had to be patient but also got his name on the scoresheet.

“Ollie Lamb has come on so much and been brilliant in the last couple of games and, at the other end of the pitch, I have to mention Adam Hampson.

“He might not have scored at the weekend but he’s an absolute joy to work with.

“He’s so professional, has the right attitude and always tries to help others around him.”

Clacton face a tough trip to leaders Histon on Saturday.

However, Austin says he and his players will relish the chance to make another statement of intent.

“We don’t fear anyone at the moment,” he said.

“We’re showing some consistency and hopefully we can keep that going at Histon.

“It will be tough, obviously, because they’re top of the table.

“But we’re in form too and the boys are in a great place.

“It’s a fantastic dressing room to be part of and the lads are a pleasure to work with.

“They’re happy to listen and work hard, which is great for me, as a young manager.

“I’m still learning but it’s perfect having a set of lads who seem to respect me and take the things I say on board.

“Saturday is a good example because of the way we tweaked things at half-time.

"They listened, carried out the instructions and it paid off.”
