ANWAR UDDIN enjoyed a successful outing in his first game in charge of Ware with a 5-0 win over Great Wakering Rovers.
The former Dagenham & Redbridge and Barnet defender took on his first managerial role since leaving Essex Senior League side Sporting Bengal at the end of last season.
Uddin was appointed at the helm of the Ryman League First Division North side at the start of the year.
Speaking with NonLeagueDaily.com’s Mark Carruthers, Uddin said: “It all happened so quickly to be honest. I got the call on Tuesday, had a training session to prepare and then my first game on the Saturday.
“It was the perfect start with a win, a clean sheet and a good performance at Great Wakering Rovers.
“But we can’t rest on that, it’s a massive challenge.
But despite the win, Ware lie in 19th place after picking up 32 points in 29 games with just nine wins this season.
And Uddin, who began his football career with West Ham United, is aware that not all games are likely to go the way of his debut.
He added: “We are where we are for a reason and the hard work is only just beginning.
“Things need to be changed and we will do that. But I couldn’t be happier to be back”.
