JAKE Robinson’s strike ensures a new-look Billericay Town recorded a 1-0 National League South win at Dulwich Hamlet.

Robinson grabbed the only goal of the encounter five minutes after the interval and, although Queens Park Rangers loanee Themis Kefalas saw red late on, Billericay came out on top at Champion Hill.

Jamie O’Hara handed starts to Josh Urquhart, Deon Moore, Jacob Cook and Faysal Bettache just a matter of days after their arrivals and the player-manager was impressed with his recent signings.

O’Hara said: “I thought Josh Urquhart was outstanding in the second half.

“He put his body on the line for me and got tighter.

“What I love about Josh is that he works and gives you everything he has got.

“Faysal got into the game and it was tough for him with it being his first game at this level of men’s football, but he did well.

“Jacob Cook was absolutely outstanding.

“We got him in because Dougie (Doug Loft) needs a bit of help around him in the central defensive midfield position.

“Jacob loves defending and when you come away from home in games like that, you need people who live and die by not conceding.

“Deon Moore is absolutely essential for what I am about.

“We want to play football but come away from home and you’ve got a boy who can hold it up, make things tick and he caused them problems.

“I’m proud of all of the new boys because I just threw them in there.

“I’m not afraid to give players a chance to show what they’re about and they proved they are Billericay boys.”

Town made the trip to Dulwich having seen two key players depart 48 hours earlier.

Sam Deering secured a move back into full-time football by joining National League side Dagenham & Redbridge, while Moses Emmanuel also left.

And O’Hara was pleased to see Billericay bounce back from their FA Cup first round exit at the hands of League Two high-flyers Forest Green Rovers.

“It was a great result after everything that has gone on at the football club over the last few days,” added O’Hara.

“We lost two big players but I knew I had replacements to come in and that showed what we’re about as a football club.

“Everyone put their heart and soul into the performance.

“I thought everyone was different class.”
