MARC Harrison believes Tilbury will reap the benefits from Brian Moses’ improvements over the course of the last year.

Harrison briefly worked with the striker at Basildon United last season but, after a stint on the books of Cheshunt, the Dockers’ chief believes Moses has upped his game.

And Harrison believes Cheshunt boss Craig Edwards deserves a lot of credit for bringing the best out of Moses.

Harrison said: “Craig Edwards deserves a lot of credit because, since I worked with him at Basildon, Brian has improved massively in his overall play.

“Fair play to Craig because he has taken Brian to another level and he is a real handful for defenders.

“Brian is dangerous and his goals and assists return since joining us has been fantastic, so I can’t ask anymore of him.

“He has improved a lot since his time at Basildon and I feel lucky to have Brian with us.

“I always rated Brian and I was pleased to have him at Basildon, where he was good, but he is a much better player at Tilbury than he was at Basildon.”

Moses scored two goals as Tilbury recorded a 6-2 FA Trophy preliminary round victory over Waltham Abbey.

Oli Spooner also grabbed a brace of goals, while Darren Phillips and Calvin Ekpiteta added their names to the scoresheet.

Leonne McKenzie and Billy Holland responded for Waltham Abbey and the tie was poised at 2-2 before the Dockers went onto record a comfortable triumph.

And Harrison, whose side will visit Metropolitan Police in the first qualifying round of the FA Trophy thanks to the win, is pleased with how Tilbury have bounced back from a frustrating start to the campaign.

“I think the squad is more stable after what was a difficult period,” added Harrison.

“We wanted to get the season off to a better start but it’s been a very good week for us.

“The squad has been more settled in the last two weeks and I have got a hell of a lot of trust in the changing room.

“I know the squad we have is going to look out for each other and we are in a good place at the moment.

“It wasn’t the best performance against Waltham Abbey but the scoreline was justified by our attacking play.

“However, there are still things to work on.”

And Harrison is keen to wish striker George Sykes well following his move to Aveley.

“George and I had an honest conversation,” admitted Harrison.

“There is no bad feeling. If the style of play had changed and we were a little bit more open, he would have been the best man for the job.

“But we can’t get the best out of him at Tilbury.

“He was brilliant for us and there are no bridges burnt.

“I wish him all the best at Aveley.”
