The reserves were given a real lesson in finishing by a very strong MUSICMEN side who fired home four goals without reply in Macedonia this morning.

“It was really tough for our lads out there as they were facing what appeared to be their first team”, admitted Marcus afterwards. “For us, we had two teenagers making their debuts in midfield, and only two of us were over the age of twenty-three, so it was always going to be a tall order to expect us to take anything from the game”.

He continued, “On the whole, I think we played reasonably well, and the younger players will have gained valuable experience. Now we can start to prepare for the new season in earnest”.
