Farnham Town manager Paul Johnson was delighted with his side’s performance after they swept aside Fleet Town 5-0 in the Combined Counties Premier Division South on Tuesday evening.

Goals from Adam Liddle, Dean Rule (2), Harry Cooksley and Shamal Edwards gave the league champions the three points in front of a crowd of 323 at The Memorial Ground.

“We were really good,” said Johnson. “I thought they responded well after Saturday. I thought we were a little bit sloppy on Saturday – we weren't too happy. From start to finish I thought we were good (against Fleet).

“It's difficult with what we've achieved already to keep going, but I thought we were excellent from start to finish. We controlled the game and scored some good goals along the way.

“We always talk about our start and I thought we were really good in our start in terms of kicking, competing and picking up second balls. We picked the right moments to play, and the first goal was good. Great feet down the line by Dean and an easy tap in for Adam. Dean was excellent, everything he did was positive.”

Farnham had raced into a three-goal lead at half-time, and Johnson was happy with how his team continued to push for more goals in the second half.

“We talked at half-time about what happened on Saturday and how to keep the intensity in what we were doing,” said Johnson. “Everything was two or three touch and we gave them no leg ups. We started really well. We controlled it and we picked our moments with the goals. We could have had seven or eight.”

Next up for Farnham is a home game against AFC Croydon Athletic in the Surrey Senior Cup on Thursday evening (7.45pm), and Johnson is looking forward to the test.

“Hopefully we came through unscathed and we'll be fresh for Thursday,” said Johnson. “We should welcome Ryan Kinnane back on Thursday. It's going to be a tough test. Croydon have got a big squad so no doubt they can go and change ten or 11 players for that game, so they'll be fresh. I think it'll be a good encounter.”
