The weather is still playing havoc with the 2023/24 season, but it has allowed Binfield boss Ross Weatherstone the opportunity to boost his Moles survival bid.

Former player Connor Holland is back at Hill Farm Lane after a spell at Bracknell Town and most recently Southall.

The attacker was a standout player at the start of last season scoring seven times for Binfield before following managers Carl Withers and Jamie McClurg to Bracknell.

Football in Berkshire understands Weatherstone has further additions to make to the side before the transfer deadline passes on Thursday.

Can Binfield beat the drop?

Binfield have nine games left to play in the Isthmian League South Central Division One and are in the bottom two relegation zone. The Moles are currently 10 points behind Chipstead who are safe in 19th, but have three games in hand.

They have an away game at Chipstead on Saturday and face bottom side Corinthian Casuals at home before the end of the season. They also have matches to come against Sutton Common Rovers, Guernsey and Ashford Town (Middlesex) who all sit in the bottom half of the table.

As we wrote in our halfway season review on Step 4: “It is harder to know what a reasonable points target would be – the division tends to change size year on year with clubs being moved into it based on late appeals – but third bottom is the immediate target and in recent seasons 34 – 36 points has been enough.”

Ultimately though Weatherstones side only need more points than the team in 19th.
