Shone said: “This is something I want to be a part of,” said Shone. “Burnham have had a tarnished image in recent years and there’s been a bad vibe about the place. That’s going to change. I wouldn’t be going in if the club’s ambition didn’t match my own.”

In last weeks Wokingham Paper, Binfield manager Roger Herridge admitted before his sides 3-1 win over Flackwell Heath that he’d be disappointed to finish outside the top 6 in the Uhlsport Hellenic Premier Division. He said: “We should be finishing in the top six.
“We’ve got no divine right because there’s a lot of good teams in the league.
“I’m not going to say it’s a massive achievement. A club with the facilities we’ve got down at Binfield, we’d like to think that it’s a place that players would want to come and play.
“I think if we don’t finish in the top six then it’s certainly a disappointment.”
