For our final pre season game we hosted neighbours Aston Clinton ,managed by old boy Jack Seaton who played the whole 90. Good to see Jack playing again after a series of bad injuries. Old boys Taylor Collins, Evan Wakeham, Joe Smith and Liam Smith all acquitted themselves well.
Because of the number of players, manager Chris Jurasek had the dubious task of informing a number of players that sadly we couldn't give them the minutes they needed,a task he did not relish. Even with Will Salmon,Jack Sunderland ,Harrison Cornick not available, we still had 18 players in the squad all of whom got a good run out.
Playing up the slope, we worked hard and were matched by our opponents and despite plenty of effort, not too many clear chances were created. We tended to move the ball too slowly playing sideways instead of forwards and out wide.
A number of changes were made and everyone got valuable minutes and with better finishing we could well have got 2/3 goals. Aston Clinton also missed a good opportunity in the last couple of minutes.
Thank you to those who attended ,a surprisingly large number,and we look forward to seeing you all at Colney Heath in our initial League game.
