PREVIEW OF 1ST AND RESERVE TEAM MATCHES 15/07/2017

Jamie Harrison has provided a preview of the first pre-season friendlies this Saturday:

"After an excellent 4 weeks of training we are really looking forward to our first pre-season friendlies. The next two weeks of matches are all about giving the players as much game time as possible in order to get match fit, ready for the start of the season; for this reason the squads have been mixed. It also gives me a chance to observe every player in a match and judge the current level of each individual. The plan is to then put together the 1st XI by the Wroughton game on the 29th.

As is the nature of this time of year we have another 20 players who are missing this first friendly due to holiday, work or injury, that will return and play in the next friendly matches.

Given the fact that the reserves will be facing an under 18 side I have tried to make this squad as young as possible. I have been really impressed with the quality of the young players we have at the club and I look forward to seeing them perform on the Southbank pitch. Some of them are ready now to have a big impact in the Western League with Corsham Town. We have three 16 year old players on show that are very good, who have big futures in the game and we will help to develop them this season to feature for the senior squads. I hope to see some more talent on show from the AFC Corsham side that can start to progress in to the Corsham Town training and playing squad."
