...proving that Football is all "swings and roundabouts"! The money you save not paying to get into Bracknell can be used to pay the extra at St Albans! 8-)

Whilst pre season games can only tell you so much, positives must be a win, scoring four goals and goals for Dennon and Jacob.

It’s never ideal to have too many trial it’s in pre season but it feels like Dean and Stuart have got the majority of their squad sorted and probably just looking to nail down a couple of positions. If Nick Arnold is fit he could be a gem.

I would agree that results are not overly important but performances are.

In 46 years of watching Wealdstone I'm yet to see poor performances in pre season translate to a storming start to a league season.

It was very uncanny last pre season how many fans predicted the season would pan out and the issues we would have.

The evidence will be there good or bad, ignore at your peril.
