“It was a competitive game to start off with, probably a game of two halves. The first half I was really pleased, hpwever, in the second-half I think our flow was disrupted through all the changes. I was disappointed to concede late on, but there were more positives, than not so.”
Chesterfield was also pleased to give youth a chance in the friendly, and made comments about debut appearances for young winger Samuel Jones and striker Kayne McLaggon.
“We got a couple of trialists in there that need some game time for us to have a look at. Sam’s (Samuel Jones) just got off the plane really so it was good to see him get straight in there, and I was pleased to see him get 15/20 minutes on the pitch today.
Couple of the youth team stepped up as well and did really well which I was really pleased with, and it was nice to see Kayne (Kayne McLaggon get his home debut as well, so loads of positives, and I think once you come to a new club its importance to amerce yourself in it early on,” he said.
And Chesterfield spoke of how pleased he is to welcome back a few more of the players off holiday next week in order to give them game time ahead of their first game back in the Welsh Premier League in 13-years on the 13th of August, against Aberyswyth Town.
“Its a catch-22 really, we got a few lads at the moment who are away on holiday so a couple of them will be coming back in next week. The aim now will to be to work towards a more stable base for our players to give us more stability going into the first game of the season,”
