Woodstock travel to their first pre-season games today at Berinsfield and Aston Clinton.
Following the success of the open trial match last Tuesday, today’s matches will give the club the chance to see how the players will react to proper opposition and see if those players will fit the ethos of the club.
First Team manager Matt Pike urges people to manage their expectations. “Today’s games aren’t necessarily about winning. They’re about getting minutes under our belts and learning about all the new players we have. We have key players away this weekend so it gives others a chance to stake a claim for a place in the side when the season starts in a few weeks. We just want people to enjoy these games”.
Callum Oliver takes a squad to Berinsfield for a 2pm kick off whilst Matt Pike takes a squad to Buckinghamshire to face off against Division 2 South opponents Aston Clinton in what will be a real test for some of the players in what will be their first game for the club
