A very decent outing today. The narrowness of the pitch didn’t help our more expansive game, although we did get some joy on the outside when we were able to move the ball there quickly. I am assuming we are basing our game on having quick rather than big and powerful forwards and the pitch didn’t really help us there. With the exception of Grady nobody powered over and Oldham coped with us near the line pretty well.

Great to see Smith, Owens, Craven and Tomkins strutting their stuff and Lyons did well also (to be fair everyone played their part).

Hopefully we will be able to cash in well at the Halton Stadium with a firm ground and more room to move the ball about! As has been said, great turnout to what is a neat little stadium (even If the pitch is on the small side!)
