THAME'S assistant manager Brett Chowns believes the squad haven't been affected by the club's off-the-field activities and the departure of manager Mark West.

The club were in crisis when bailiffs stripped the club after they failed to pay a VAT bill and this was followed by West leaving for Slough.

But Thame bounced back with a 1-1 draw against Chesham on Saturday and Chowns reckons the team are looking good.

He said: "We've not talked about off-the-field activities.

"Last season with Westy, we had a terrific team spirit and we've still got that.

"The only players to leave have gone into management or moved up a league."

And Chowns was pleased with the players that came in and performed on Saturday.

He said: " I thought we deserved to win. Colin Simpson did well with the goal, Ben Connelly came in from the youth team and did well and Joe Da Silva was very solid.

"I don't really want to pick anyone out as they were all impressive.

Chowns is now looking for more of the same when his team entertain Croydon tomorrow (ko 3pm).
