Pilgrims FC vs Ashford United 3rds

Kick off 10.30am at Great Charts Playing Fields

This coming game against Pilgrims is the 2nd round of the Sheba cup and we are playing the game at their ground. Pilgrims is a new team to me and I know absolutely nothing about them so we go to the game blind. Our first two games of the New Year were close run and we came away from both games with less than we deserved. The good thing for us is that our match sharpness is beginning to return following a six week break over the Christmas period. We will also be back to full strength having played the last two games without five first team players. But those players coming back from injury will start on the bench for this match. I’m also pleased to say how well those that came into the team in the last two games performed. We have a full squad and it is difficult to give game time to everyone but those that stepped up to the line in the previous two games really did give a good account of themselves. I am also pleased to say that our striker Rhys Hodges has begun training with the first team. Hopefully this achievement will rub off on the rest of the team. Cheers Roger Hadlum Manager Ashford United 3rds.
