Title: At home to Spalding.
Post by: Grissles Oleary on July 24, 2018, 11:56:39 AM
Last friendly before the season starts, at home to Spalding, last chance to get a look at the team until the season starts. Hopefully nothing else clashes with this game, and I think it is reasonably priced, Adults and concessions £8, 16 to 18 £4 and Under-16s free. :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Just "pinged" an email to Club asking them to update the website as we are asking when tickets can be got online.

Spalding game is £8 Adults and £8 Concessions.

So, no point in buying a Concession Ticket!

Is this pricing in line with previous Friendlies?

Drove past The Walks today and gates open. Pitch looking very green and pleasant. Looking forward to our final Friendly and hopefully a settled team on show with some halftime tweaks.

Will this be when Higgs signs on the dotted line? Hope so.

I looked agauin at 1515 and Friends of the Linnets had posted at 1502!

We normally have Online up and running 1430ish onwards and I would expect to be able to sign in before a match commences - How do I let anyone know I am there????

Who was the triallist playing no. 4 yesterday? Thought he was excellent and might worry one or two of our existing squad.

Dead right the number 4 put a good shift in we need to sign this lad

No4 Trialist was playing midfield and was everywhere and playing a "Clunan" style midfield General. Michael Clunan was playing off of No4 in a Ryan Jarvis role. We seemed to be playing Fryatt and McAuley as Centre-Backs and Blake-Tracey and Thomas Wing-Backs and Clunan and No4 Midfield with Parker and Gash and No8 Trialist and Richards, Stewart, Hilliard, Hawkins combo's when subbed. Various Lynn players were playing for Spalding including: Castellan, Frary, and several others that I can't remember. Tom Siddons was there but he did not really show as Spalding did not get many useful attacks going - players were not able to link up as they played loaned Lynn players.

Over-all a useful game but nothing really sparkled - No8 Trialist tried an overhead shot that showed imagination but no set-pieces as very few free kicks awarded (clean game).

Biggleswade will be a more physical and contested game and this showing vs Spalding was, at time, just a kick-about.

Thought McCauley looked very good at number 6 The No Salah lookalike put in a good shift side looked confident on the ball and will be interesting for the new season

Macauley looked good  but for  best player on the pitch was the Spalding keeper  kept the score down to just two

with some great saves.  If we hope to progress this season we need to take these chances

I guess the lad Jordan Nelson, who we had on trial through pre-season is not being signed as he came on as a 2nd half sub for UCL Leicester Nivarda  on Saturday.

Would seem we are almost there with the squad, with one or 2 questions to be I's dotted and T's crossed.

I wonder if number four is running around shouting I am not a number I am a free man? :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:
