Biggleswade Town boss Chris Nunn was overjoyed with a ‘thoroughly deserved’ win for the superb Waders as they completed a rare league double over Hitchin.
Connor Hall’s tap in from a clever Waders free-kick after 25 minutes sealed a rare double over the Canaries in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier.
Nunn said: “I’m delighted, we deserved the win. I felt in control and it would have been harsh if we hadn’t won.
“When you win 1-0 away it’s more pleasing, because you have to stay focused. That’s something to be proud of.
“We didn’t sit back, we kept three men forward and had a go. If we were going to lose we were going to do it trying to win.
“If Carlsberg made football matches, that would be it.”
Young talents Morgan Penfold and Jack Bowen were swapped for the strength and experience of Tony Burnett and Shane Hill, a game winning move.
Nunn said: “Bringing Tony and Shane in gave us more aerial threat and physical presence. When things work out tactically it’s great.
The chances Biggleswade missed to kill off the game were the only downside. Nunn agreed that the Waders could be climbing table if they add ruthlessness to these type of performances.
On the superb 23-year-old Hall, who added a composed performance at centre-half to his goal, Nunn added: “To me he’s one of the best players in the league. I’ve no doubt he’ll play at a high level. I really like him.
In their next three games the Waders face Slough, Hereford and Kettering, three of their toughest games in the season in a row.
Nunn said: “We thought, after losing to Frome, we had to get something out of Hitchin before our next three games. On our day I feel we can match anyone, especially at home.
“Why can’t we beat those teams?”
