Well, even the most optimistic of Rocks fan could not have imagined a start to the season like that.
Two games in a new division against two top ten sides and still Bognor remain unbeaten, in no small part due to two late strikes and a heap of drama.
What’s more, the Rocks’ front three appear to be firing, giving the side a boost in knowing that they can compete with the best on the return to National League South.
Manager Jack Pearce said: “Most people acquitted themselves well in the games we’ve had. Ollie Pearce scored a tremendous free kick. All the time I’ve been watching him I’ve never seen him strike a ball that well.
“Jimmy Mutt is playing very well with his attacking display. Both have got to work harder at their game when haven’t got the ball but there’s genuinely a good atmosphere in the camp.”
While goals are being scored, the danger of not taking chances when on top is something that the Rocks must get used to.
Pearce said: “At this level, if you don’t score when you’re having a good spell then the opposition will have the quality. Games change on incidents like that. We need to be ruthless.”
