Stu Storer reflects on Pre Season 

“I am happy that pre-season is nearly done and we can look forward to the 17th and our first league game against St Neots.  Its nice to have been given a home game so we can hopefully get a good start and create a springboard for the season.  Looking back at pre -season having lads away has not really hindered them with regards to fitness as they have been working themselves hard, but for the teams pattern and shape it has been difficult, this has for us like most clubs given a very false pre-season.

The squad is very nearly complete but saying that there are still 2/3 places up for grabs. The last 10 days before the season starts is about the players staying sharp and staying clear of injuries so that come Saturday the 17th I have a full squad to pick from with players all being pushed to perform as there is always someone waiting in the wings to take their place should their performance level drop. This season we have ensured that for each position we have 2 names no-one is guaranteed their place in the starting 11.

With most teams at our level and the level above starting their seasons this Saturday it has been impossible to find an opponent for Saturday, but it has given us the chance to hold an in house match just to have a look at the last few trialists and some of the U21s who are pushing for a first team place.  It gives them that last opportunity to impress and to fill one of those remaining slots. This game will also allow the lads to get disciplined in their roles and responsibilities for the season ahead and to ensure that we hit the ground running and are all playing off the same song sheet.”
