New College coach Matt Cosnett says his youngsters are raring to go as they host Woodstock Town in Division One West tomorrow.

The last time the two teams met was at the end of February, where Woodstock completed a comfortable 4-1 win over the students. With the weekend fixture being their third contest in over a month, Cosnett (pictured) admits his troops are chomping at the bit to play.

“We were meant to play Shortwood but they have pulled out of the league but I think it will be a good test for the lads,” he said. “A lot of the older players have been unable to compete in U18s games so they are desperate to play a game. When we played them at their place we played really well. They just caught us on a few counter-attacks and some set pieces. It’s hard for our lot because they are playing against fully grown men, so they are at a disadvantage, but they are raring to go.”

With only two wins all season, Cosnett admits it has been a tough year for his troops, but is happy with their progress. “The season was hard at the start but it has got better, I think the guys have started to implement what we have done in training,” he added. “It is a learning curve at the end of the day. People see the scoreline and don’t see the performances. If people came to watch, then they will see we dominate teams at times, but don’t take our chances. Some of the players come in and are open-minded. They know they are playing at a disadvantage physically. Others assume because they are better technically, they’ll do better, so it’s a learning process for some of them.”
