BEDFONT FC held a clear-the-air meeting following their 9-1 hammering at Colliers Wood United last Wednesday.
It was the culmination of a miserable run which has seen Bedfont fail to win a Combined Counties Premier match since November.
Fortunately, a good run of form in the first four months of the season means the Orchardmen should be safe from a relegation scrap.
On top of it all, the club had an investigation hanging over its head after a player punch-up involving Carl McInerney in a heated derby with Chertsey.
But club secretary Derek Smith said: "We had a meeting of the members and committee and it lasted about an hour. "There were some frank exchanges and several differences of opinion, and we agreed to put it all behind us. "Confidence is low at the moment, but I can't ever remember a Bedfont team losing 9-1. The strange thing is, we went 1-0 up through Richard Bond!"
However, the meeting did not have the desired effect on Saturday as Bedfont went down 3-1 at fellow-strugglers Raynes Park Vale, despite taking a fifth-minute lead through Roberto Pinto. Meanwhile, Bedfont have asked us to point out the Chertsey player involved in the fracas with McInerney was not hospitalised, but was treated by medics at the ground, and even played the following Tuesday.
