Another friendly after called off game
By Gareth Williams
Greens strength in depth shown
Holmer Green FC Res 1-2 Finchampstead FC
With another home game called off due to a waterlogged pitch, the management quickly arranged a game against Hellenic Div 1 side Finchampstead on the excellent 3g pitch at Bisham Abbey.
Holmer were missing Ryan Williams, Ben Hodges and Martin Lancaster who were all on County duty and Sam Parry who was injured, but the Greens were still able to take 19 players to this game, including new signing Kenta Suehiro who was making his debut, this shows the amazing strength in depth we have this year, competition is fierce, and the performance's in both halves reflected this.
In both halves Holmer bossed possession but were wasteful in front of goal, Finchampstead with 2 lively forward were more direct and and scored two goals that we should have dealt with fairly easily, Jamie Franks capped off and excellent display with a well deserved goal.
Considering we changed nearly the whole team at half time and we were playing a team from a higher league, this was an encouraging display, our passing game continues to impress, and we are creating lots of opportunities, what we must improve is our finishing and our play off the ball
