Video & Quotes from Nicky Shorey...

  • Nicky on a slow start to the game...

"We couldn't find a foot hold in the game early on during the first twenty minutes which is disapointing, especially with league games coming up soon. At home we want to make sure we are on the front foot early on so that is something we need to improve on, definitely.

"Once we did, it wasn't too bad. Our shape was a lot better, we were able to get to the players and do it more as a team."

  • Nicky on an improved second half & big impact from Alex Samuel...

"I thought second half we were better in our play. We created numerous chances, half chances and shots on goal.

"Alex is getting fitter and fitter. When he is firing on all cylinders he will be a big threat for us. He has showed that he is getting stronger all the time, so that is pleasing. When you get new signings coming in, you want to see them have an impact and they are all gradually starting to get there."

  • Nicky on the season kicking off in two weeks time...

"That is what it is all about. We are gearing up now and we want our performances to gradually get better. The first day, Newport at home - that is the big one."

Make sure you are ready for the start of 2017/2018 by purchasing your Season Ticket in time for August 5th when we take on Newport in the season opener.
