Dene Whittal-Williams, gives his verdict on Malvern Town's final pre-season encounter as we ran out 4-3 victors over Droitwich Spa.
“We always knew it was going to be tough,” he said. “That’s why we wanted to play them tonight as we knew it would give us good preparation to take into the start of the new season at the weekend. They are a strong side with good management who have been together for a while. There were ups and downs for us over the course of the 90 minutes, but we played some fantastic stuff at times."
“We let them back into it having gone two goals up, but the good thing was that we were able to calm ourselves down, get another two goals and see the game out."
“It’s ended pre-season on a positive note, so we’re happy with that. We’ve played some strong teams who have given us good preparation for the challenges that we face.The lads have worked hard, listened hard and now we’re ready for Saturday. Pre-season seems to have gone on a long time. We anticipated a mid-September start so we’ve timed it right in terms of the minutes that we’ve been able to get into each player."
“We know that it’ll be a massive test to open the season against a good Hereford Pegasus side, but, as I say, we are prepared and ready.We’ll go in to it with our tails up and chests out, determined to make a winning start.”
