AS good luck charms go, Toby Aromolaran is doing a pretty effective job for Witham Town at the moment.

The 19-year-old forward's arrival at the Village Glass Stadium has not only kick-started his own season but it has also coincided with a remarkable upturn in form that has seen them claim 17 points from their last seven matches.

That run through December and now into January has lifted Witham from rock bottom in the Bostik League division north table to a position where they can target a move into mid-table safety in the second half of the campaign.

They continued their amazing form with a fifth win from seven games as they came from behind to beat Brentwood Town on Saturday.

Aromolaran played a key role in that, scoring a tremendous solo goal to pull Witham level and then winning the penalty that Luke Mallett converted for what proved to be the winner.

And, after a difficult personal start to the season, Aromolaran is loving being part of a buoyant Witham dressing room and working with boss Mark Ashford and his management team of John Sussex and Kevin Wren.

He said: “I've come into the changing room and have only seen us win or draw.

“I have never seen us lose.

“The others said the start of the season was tough, but I’ve only ever seen a team that’s picking up points and in my opinion, I think this is one of the top teams in the division.

“The changing room is buzzing and there’s so much confidence there now.

“The way we’ve played against the likes of Maldon and Canvey shows that.

“I think we can beat anyone in this league.

“And that confidence has rubbed off on me.

“I had been lacking it at the start of the season as I’d had a number of clubs and not been getting any goals at all.

“I was at Tilbury, then Basildon and then Cheshunt and now here and finally I’m enjoying my football.

“Mark, John and Kevin have all helped me and I’m loving the club here.

“There’s such a great atmosphere in the changing room and on the pitch.

“If we can win a game like the one against Brentwood, then we can win anywhere and we just have to keep the run going as long as we can."

There is also respect flowing the other way as boss Ashford is a big fan of his in-form striker.

“Toby is a really good player," added the Witham manager.

“He’s part of the profile of player that I want to bring in here.

“He is hungry for it and he wants to learn.

“There was a spell earlier in the season that he had when he wasn’t getting much football so he’s only just starting to get close to his full fitness and he was untouchable at times against Brentwood."

Witham now head to Mildenhall Town on Saturday looking to extend their unbeaten run to an eighth game.

While no-one at the club is getting carried away with the recent success, though, Aromolaran feels the players have shown they should be looking up the division north standings and targeting a strong second half to their caampaign.

He added: “We are pushing on up the table and while we’re only looking at it one game at a time, who knows where we can go this season?

“We are aiming for as high as we can.

“So we just have to keep this run going as long as possible.

“Confidence is so good at the moment.

“If it hadn’t been that way, then there’s no way that we could have earned that result against Brentwood.

“We would have shattered ourselves and been down, but every single player mustered the energy and was unreal."
