WGC were thrashed 5-0 by Broxbourne Borough V&E on Saturday.

Following boss Howard Cowley's dramatic departure last week, Dave Lewis was in charge of the Citizens.

After the game, caretaker manager Lewis tried to take positives from his side's comprehensive defeat at Goffs Lane.

"It was a scratch side, and we had to use a lot of kids today," said Lewis.

"It's a case of rebuilding now for next season and we are still optimistic.

"We had a few players out, but it was always going to be hard under the circumstances."

He added: "I am here till the end of the season and have a job to do.

"I have been around a while, so feel I have the experience to turn things around."

Lewis will be aided by his friend Graham Willis, with the management duo hoping confidence can be restored and WGC can end the season adding a few more points to their total.

But after Saturday's result, they face a huge challenge in the coming weeks.
