Well, it’s here, the last pre-season game before the league games begin on the 11th of August away to Walton Casuals!
What a run of pre-season games we’ve had so far! We won 7-0 away to Alton, 6-0 away to Burnham, drew with National League side Eastleigh 1-1, lost a respectable 2-0 to another National League side Maidenhead, won 6-0 away at Fleet, then the very disappointing behind closed doors game vs Aldershot where we lost again a respectable 3-2. We then went on to win 6-1 in Alresford!
We’ve also seen Dean Stow introduced into the team who came from rivals Hartley Witney.
We’ve also seen the likes of Jim Orvis and Tom Leggett hoping to break it into the first team squad!
He spent 9 seasons with Hartley before coming to us, the last 3 years as joint manager where he had successive promotions.
The newly promoted side’s manager Karl Lewis hadn’t planned their impressive promotion to Division 1, so it was a surprise to all when they dominated the league having until now never played higher than the Welsh League Division 2.
This will be a very good test against a very good Welsh Division 1 side, so I hope to see you all at the Camrose at 1pm on Saturday the 4th of August.
