Nick Davis Talks Pre-Season, Summer Changes & Fixtures Ahead of Crystal Palace

11/07/2019

Nick Davis has given his take on the new season as his side prepare for Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Pre-season

"What can I say, the last campaign felt like it finished last week and we are back already with the busy schedule of pre-season."

"It actually never stops for me as the off season is one of that busiest times for any manager."

"We have only been back on the training ground for four sessions sandwiched in between our first friendly against Tunbridge Wells, which finished 0-0."

Changes

"There are a few changes to the squad from last season and we will use this time to help try and gel this talented squad together."

"I’ve never been a big fan of pre-season games as it can tend to be a little false. However I have expressed to the group that I am looking to go with a squad of 16/17 and so this time will be used as a trial period for them all."

"In the grand scheme of things the results of pre-season don’t really matter but I think it is important we get into good habits as quickly as possible."

Fixtures

"At the time of writing these notes I am not aware of the fixtures that are due to be published later today. We will keep a close eye on it to ensure we are prepared for whoever we face on the first week of the season. This will include two league games and an FA Cup clash."

"I look forward to seeing your support on Saturday against Crystal Palace and hopefully we have a great game!"
