Winchester City 2-0 Farnborough
So another good nights work in the end! We took the opportunity to make 8 changes from the starting lineup, plus 5 different subs filled with youth team players, 3 of which came on and had 1st team debuts, brilliant to see! We left out 8 players completely to protect them a bit after a punishing schedule!
Farnborough also put a young side out with a couple of first team players involved, their management team were not there though... one thing I will say is even for the reserve games both myself and Sean are at every one possible, we know everything about our young lads coming through and very proud of them.
First half we were totally dominant but lacked that cutting edge, we got a goal through IK Hill after Dom went down the line and cut back for Bailey who’s shot was blocked. We were not that happy with the lads but in truth they were totally dominant!
Second half I thought we were even more controlled and played some very good stuff at times, we eventually got a 2nd with Franno finishing after my corner was nodded down to him in the box! It really should have been several more but in truth it was as comfortable as you will ever see, even at 1-0 it was never in doubt without ever playing to full potential.
We had 5 youth team players involved whilst a floodlit cup youth game was going on and the lads won that as well, 6-1!! Fantastic night for the club! We also had 8 teenagers on the pitch tonight at one time, that’s pretty impressive, in fact 2 of them were only 16 and excellent both of them.
Well done to the boys for another win, we now have to prepare for Saturday and a tough game in the trophy against in form Thame, we have more availability issues Saturday, so we are going to have to see what we can do! We will need the supporters roaring us on though!
