I notice we kept up our 100% pre-season record with a 2-0 win at Marine today, having beaten Rhyl 5-0 last night.

Lowe scored again and seems to be in great form, even allowing for the poor quality of the opposition. Horwood has made a favourable impression at left back, Kirby appears to be progressing and a couple of the trialists seem decent. However, Akpro does not seem to have featured so far: is he injured again ?

I am hoping to take in my first game at Altrincham on Tuesday where I would imagine we will start with a full strength eleven.

Pre-season seems to be going really well. I've never known so many convincing wins. It's not that easy, as we have been putting out two different teams in each match and with so many trialists, it must be impossible for the sides to gel.

I haven't heard anything from the club about JLAA. He's not away on international duty, so he must have a knock. I assume it's not too serious as Ronnie would probably have mentioned it.

Excellent pre season so far but early days, will be interesting to see how we go against Burnley
If Lowe can keep this ratio up during the season we should do well

I know it's difficult to take too much away from friendlies but Lowe really is banging them in. I'm hoping we've now found someone who knows where the net is. Could make a real difference to our season.
