Top scorer leaves after goal bonus dispute
BEACONSFIELD SYCOB are continuing on their merry way under Gary Meakin with a third win in four games on Monday.
A 4-0 drubbing to Barton Rovers was a wake-up call after they shocked everyone with two wins to start the season, and they duly responded 72 hours later with a 3-1 win over Slough.
There were eight changes to squad between Saturday and Monday, and scoring twice in the win was Dilal Butt, one of eight new players at the club in the past week.
Meakin has brought in keeper James Reading, Stefan Tomasevic to bolster the defence and midfield trio Wayne O’Sullivan, Max McCann and Butt.
Furthermore, strikers Aaron Lansiquot, Victor Osoba and Kyle Matthews have arrived, with last season’s top scorer Yash Romeo going in the opposite direction after Meakin said the club couldn't meet his financial demands.
Meakin said: “I’m disappointed he’s going, and I’m disappointed with the reason he’s going.
“But I won’t go over budget and the chairman won’t let me go over budget.”
A goal bonus was the sticking point with Romeo, who had been promised one under the previous management, but if Meakin doesn’t replace his goals it won’t be for a lack of trying.
He said: “I’m not finished, there are still more seven-day approaches to come and expire.”
More reinforcements should be in place by Saturday, in time for Beaconsfield’s FA Cup tie with Bracknell.
Meakin said: “Last Saturday was a game too far for us, but getting brought down to earth like that helped us going into Slough.
“This weekend we’re playing a team from a lower league and if we don’t apply ourselves right then they will win. But if we do apply ourselves right, we will win.”
