Former manager Steve Cornwell has wished the club well after his tenure ended recently. He said: "I hope they do well. The rapport with the lads up there was always very good and we wanted to do well. I think the group of players are better than when we started.
"I have had a couple of offers to do some coaching but I think I will see what happens over the summer and in the mean time play some golf."
On Saturday, Harpenden Town go away to Brache Sparta and they host Sport London e Benfica on Tuesday. Tomkins and his assistant Gavin Kelsey will be looking to power the survival bid with more important points.
