Speaking after our pre-season loss to Haverfordwest County, manager Gavin Allen said about his squad:
"We're not far off, to be honest. We were missing two experienced individuals today, but you can see the age group of players already; we've got legs, we've got youth - it's just that bit of experience and knowledge that will benefit many of the young lads when we have a full squad. We have two games to go before the season starts, but you could see today that when we got the passing and tempo going, we looked strong"
