Flint looks for improvement

BLUES’ boss Adam Flint is looking for a big improvement as his side prepare to face Hitchin Town in the Herts Charity Cup tonight.

Flint’s team head into tonight’s game against the Canaries having lost all six pre-season friendlies, and the new Stortford manager is clearly frustrated with his side’s performances:

“It’s been disappointing, really. We’ve held out own in the games against the pro teams, realistically we weren’t going to win them, but there’s been some good performances.

“We were okay in patches at Aveley [a 2-1 defeat last Tuesday], but a few of the players were struggling on their pitch and when I made some half-time changes we struggled a bit and lost our way.

“That definitely continued on Saturday, and certain players who won’t be playing against Dorking on Saturday struggled, and we lost our way.

“We were missing a lot of players, Lewis Dark has blisters so I rested him with Saturday in mind, and Ryan Charles has a bruise on his foot. We haven’t even seen Jake Cass in action yet as he rolled his ankle the day before the first friendly, and we had a couple of holiday, as well, I’ve never known so many players to be out of action pre-season.

“We’ve had to play the likes of Max [Brassington] and Alfie Mason out of position, so I’ve learned some things about the players which is at least positive. “

Admission tonight has been reduced to £6 for adults and £4 for concessions.
