It was my job to pick the players up and fast forward 48hrs – and it was a shame no supporters were there to witness our session on Tuesday night. After a good, honest, open chat the players’ intensity, determination and professionalism during the session was exactly what was required.
We ironed out a lot of things and will do the same again tonight, but I was immensely impressed with the resilience this young group of players are showing when things aren’t going their way. No one is burying their head in the sand. Experiences like this will only make the group stronger and we are unfortunately getting punished for every little mistake we make...but that’s football.
I’m not a believer in “luck” .... luck is when preparation meets opportunity and if these players keep applying themselves in the correct manner then they will get their rewards.
Just a quick message for those who followed our academy side who travelled to Marbella for a week’s training. Fantastic facilities and some excellent individual performances saw us leave Spain with 2 wins from 2 games.
Some outstanding individual performances, notably Jacob Mensah, TJ Jadama and Harvey Laws. What was even more impressive was the behaviour and professionalism from our boys, Callum Weatherley in particular. They are a pleasure to work with.
Thank you all for your continued support. We are all determined to get 3 points on the board, starting Saturday against Whyteleafe.
