As we are pulling together a new and very local team, and remembering how preseason matches in the recent past have been little to no guide to our subsequent season long performances...……..I just hope (and expect) that supporters will keep their expectations in check and not dive right into negativity if, (as my be likely), the Southward Trophy match goes against us.

The new setup must be appreciated for what it is......development of a local team, and hence the reduction / elimination of expensive and difficult to 'accommodate' travelling players. 

Take this season for what it is.....a new beginning and the first of a number of steps to a more localised and secure future for our team and local player development.
