PHOTO GALLERY: 'Perfect day' for Deeping Rangers
The biggest game in Deeping Rangers’ history was ‘a perfect day’ according to boss Michael Goode.
A bumper crowd of 432 saw the Clarets collect £1,875 prize money for a place in the last 16 of the Buildbase FA Vase on February 2.
Goode said: “This was our best performance all season, that’s for sure.
“What can you fault out there? Absolutely nothing because it was a perfect performance.
“We wouldn’t have minded a goal in the first half but sometimes you can score too early and drop deeper.
“We knew they had a threat and good players going forward.
“But when Scott Mooney is playing that well, he takes up three players out of the back four.
“He had one of those games when he is the best striker in our league.
“Dan Jarvis gave us balance with an extra man in midfield where I thought Dan Schiavi was excellent along with Henry Dunn and Charlie Coulson.
“In the first half, Jonny Lockie made an impact but we’ve brought back Cameron Johnson permanently so he came on.
“Both centre-backs were brilliant as well.
“It was a perfect day with a great result in front of 400-plus supporters so the chairman must be happy!
“It doesn’t get any better than that and it’s amazing that a lot of people in the Deepings came out to support us.
“Hopefully we can get another home tie in the next round.
“If we play like that, we’ve got a chance against anyone.
“Those are the levels we can reach. It’s not a fluke. We’ve played well in patches but not for 90 minutes.”
The Clarets are back home on Tuesday night against Leicester Nirvana in the Future Lions United Counties League Premier Division.
Goode - who was named manager of the month for December - added: “It’s another big game as we want to hang around the top three or four.
“We don’t need to think about the FA Vase for a few weeks because a lot can happen between now and then.”
Deeping have also signed Kane Brown from Kirby Muxloe.
