Simon Walton admits he has ‘a bit of catching up to do’ despite making a goalscoring full debut for Billericay Town.

The Yorkshireman scored in the 3-0 win at Welling United having been hampered by a hamstring injury for the first three games of term.

He was named Man of the Match following the win, which took Billericay to the summit of the National League South.

And the 30-year-old, who counts Leeds United, Plymouth Argyle and Hartlepool United among his former clubs, says he is feeling sharp ahead of tomorrow’s encounter with Weston-super-Mare.

“It was a frustrating start but I am back and feeling strong now,” said Walton. “I started pre-season and felt good playing the first few games but I got a little hamstring strain at Aveley and it wouldn’t go away.

“It wasn’t a tear but a niggle and I shouldn’t have played against Biggleswade Town and West Ham. I wasn’t training and the lads were doing well and I wasn’t ready to start.

“I was trying to get my hamstring back to full strength and after a frustrating spell I am back now.”
