Prove Your worth After Sutton Win

Prove Your worth After Sutton Win

Manager Neal Ardley has challenged the youngsters who were on show against Sutton United to prove their worth this season.

Match winner Chace Jacquart, Tom Beere, George Oakley and Will Nightingale all played their parts in the two one win over Sutton and did catch the eye of the gaffer and he hopes there's more to come from them all.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game Nightingale especially impressed the gaffer, and he said.

'The pre season games are giving these players good experience. If Alan Reeves (U21) can move them onto the next level in the first couple of months and we are looking around for players in their positions then I want to use them. But it's up to these players to show me that they are ready to make the step up.'

Speaking more specifically about the game, Ardley admitted that he felt we did start slowly and a bit jittery on the day but as the game wore on we came into it more, started to impose ourselves and play some decent stuff.

That certainly applied to Nightingale.

'Will started jittery, but he got better and better. He became more comfortable and he is aggressive. Alan has already spotted a lot that he can work on with Will. Alan and Neil Cox will work on positioning and if Will can get his positioning right then he will hopefully step up.'

The gaffer also said he felt it was very important that Wimbledon registered a win last night following our previous games, and he credited the players for approaching the match as a 'cup final' and making sure they got from it what we wanted result wise and for being very professional in their efforts.

'We could've been two or three up after the spell we produced in the first half, but we lost our way a bit and I was annoyed with that. In the second half our attacking play was good, but the finishing was lacking - we've not really worked on that yet though.'

Ardley was also extremely full of praise for the substitutes he brought on as they were instructed to 'win the game' and that's just what they went and helped us do.

This site is looking for bloggers, so if a fan can offer us a genuine opinion from someone that supports them we would love to share it with the masses!
