Pre-Season Friendlies

Post by nicholaldo » Sat Aug 01, 2020 2:56 pm

It seems we're playing a pre-season friendly against Atherton Collieries this afternoon.

The starting line-up is apparently as follows:

Crillen (rumoured to be signing on a season-long loan from Fleetwood Town)

Hickman, Santos, Delaney, Taft, Gordon

Comley, Thomasson, Crawford

(trialist), Doyle

Politic has started the second half at right wing-back.

Lion of Vienna Suite's estimation of the teams:

Other notes, from the second half:

"Politic's scored. Playing cm now"
"Baptiste looking solid. Showcasing a good range of passing"
"A trialist striker just scored an absolute worldie. Baptiste played him in behind, took it round his man & cut back in. Top bins with his left foot."

Interesting to see Hickman (the ex-Cov lad) and Politic trialed at right wingback. Might just be filling spaces at the moment though. Brocky in midfield!

Some interesting thoughts with the names on show today. What would be everyone's thoughts if we did re-sign Baptiste and Bunney? And a possible re-role for Politic?
Age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill!

He's not getting about as much as he used to. He was practically everywhere a few years ago... :)

Maybe he's a bit older. Legs not what they were. :lol:

Just like in the early 80s, TonyD will have to put those flares away: the game at FCUM has been called off.

Apparently the trialist who scored the screamer was a player who sports a ‘top knot’ in his barnet... Any lower league oracles know who that might be?

Why has that friendly been called off? To stop people trying to go?

They haven’t said, but COVID-19 restrictions aren’t suspected. (Yes it’s behind closed doors but people still turn up.)

Web guessers gonna guess and many have suggested Ben Stephens, late of (Phoenix’s) Macclesfield, although he’s nominally a midfielder...
