Billericay looking for a change of fortune

Billericay Town v Dulwich Hamlet – Vanarama National League South – New Lodge – Saturday 3pm – Preview

Kevin Watson has wasted little time in reshaping his Billericay Town side.

Ahead of the Blues midweek defeat at Dartford, the new boss recruited former Yeovil Town goalkeeper, Harry Palmer, and he’s dipped into the market again to bring in one-time Bishop’s Stortford, Hungerford Town, East Thurrock United and St Albans City midfielder, Darren Foxley as well as Rowan Liburd – the frontman having previously played for Town back in the 2014/15 campaign before spells at a number of clubs, including Reading, Wycombe Wanderers (loan), Leyton Orient (loan) and Stevenage.

All three are expected to feature when in-form Dulwich Hamlet are the visitor’s to New Lodge on Saturday afternoon.

While Billericay have lost three on the spin in the league, the South Londoners arrive in Essex having won four of their last five.

As well as strengthening on the pitch, Watson has added to his backroom staff, appointing former Tottenham Hotspur and Barnet midfielder, Mark Hughes as assistant manager following Tristan Lewis’s departure to take up a similar role at Welling United.
