Ahead of our opening home league game against Kidlington on Tuesday evening (7:45 KO), first team coach Kev Barry has previewed the fixture. Chairman Mike Burke has also praised our management staff for their work over the summer.
“We host Kidlington FC in our first home game of the Step Four campaign on Tuesday after a very impressive opening away win against a strong AFC Dunstable.
“The manner of the win on Saturday was extremely encouraging from a management point of view as Bren/Andy and myself could see that the lads had taken on board all that had been worked on in pre-season and tried their best to implement where possible.
“Continuing the hard work ethic on the training pitch, combined with structure and discipline will aid us all in maintaining our levels and keep the lads grounded for the tough season ahead.
“It’s worth mentioning that after winning the title last season, one of the key ingredients to success is recruitment.
“It is paramount to add quality to any successful squad and with Will, Harry, Dan, Nathan, Jono and Cameron joining the squad, Brendan and Andy have excelled in this area.
“I am confident that this will keep competition for places high and training sessions at the quality required for this level of football.
“After the weekend, we are in a good place; we need to continue with the hard work to make sure we are still in that window come Wednesday morning!”
