Good performance today and did what we needed to but disappointed to only get 240, was hoping for nearly 300 but so far away support is really poor.
See you all Monday.

We played against 10 men for 86 minutes, the sub keeper -
who stood all of 5’6” - was at fault for two and we had one real shot in the second half from which Scotty scored. Passing was sluggish, but not helped by a pitch that was far bumpier than it seemed.
Fully understand that we’ve got a big game on Monday so when we went on 3 up at half time the game was won and there was no need for the player to bust their guts, but TBF to Kendal I thought that they had a greater attacking intent in the last 20 than we did.
But would I have been delighted with 7 points from our first 4 games? Absolutely
“Hacking shots from anywhere”.- First home win in a new league
- An easy win, controlled the game, no doubt with Monday in mind.
- Personally, I’m glad with the game won, the team carried on playing proper football, fine tuning moves, rather than hacking shots from anywhere at their right back goal keeper.
I wouldn’t class Kidsgrove as a poor side. I think them and Clitheroe will be comfortably top 8 and chasing promotion. We have beaten the sides we need to finish above which is job well done I think.Naturally very pleased with the result and that we have 7 pts after 4 games. However get the feeling that other than Clitheroe we have played 3 poorish teams so far. Yesterday’s game ruined by the very early sending off and the poor replacement in goal.
Thought we were ok in first half but second half far too negative though another great goal by Scottie. No idea why we didn’t test their goalie more. Kendal deserved their goal and could have scored more but for Tony in goal.
Next few weeks will be a bigger test and should give better indication of how we are going to cope at this higher level.
Also the pitch looked fine to me especially since Barnton had just played on it night before.
