Weekend Reaction – 20/09/2020

First Team go down 4-2 at Chesham United whilst Development Team beaten 1-0 by Laverstock & Ford FC.

1st Team Manager Reaction – Jamie Lloyd-Davies
“Sunday proved as expected to be a difficult game against a very good opponent. We matched and bettered them in spells across the game but their persistence and quality was too much in the end.

“Overall it was a very positive performance from us and we come away needing to learn a couple of lessons.

“We could not fault the player’s effort and will stand us in good stead for the season.”

Development Team Manager Reaction – James Lally
“We never really got going today and just didn’t play our football. Despite that, Dani didn’t have much to do other than a great save near the end of the game to keep it 1-0. Full credit to the players, they took responsibility for the performance.

“As a management team we will also reflect on what we could’ve done differently. We congratulate Laverstock and their players who put a real shift in & we are already looking forward to our players being back at it Tuesday as we prepare for next weekend’s derby.

“Finally, good luck to Hannah, Sophie and Honor who’ll be representing Swindon Town Community Foundation C6 in their Cup final at St George’s Park on Tuesday.”
