Steve's thoughts

I spoke to Steve this morning ahead of tonight’s game against Merthyr Town. With Wheeler, Sommerton and Mullings being out with injury and Dawson not being available due to illness, he has a busy evening ahead but remains confident.

He said “I was pleased to get the result on Saturday. A game that could quite easily have gone the other way, but as with the previous two fixtures, we managed the game and went on to win these matches which is something we haven't been able to do on several occasions this season. There’s no doubt that some were feeling the effects of Tuesday as it was a slightly tired performance but that will happen at times.

“Last year I thought Merthyr was one of our best results as they’re particularly strong at home on a surface that suits their pass and move style and we will certainly have to be disciplined in our approach to get anything from the game.”

We look forward to seeing those of you that make the long trip today and hope we get to see a great game of football.

Taunton Preview & Wellard News

FB Size

I spoke to Steve after the win away to Hendon as he previewed the upcoming clash with Taunton.

"Pleased with the result at Hendon and the clean sheet. I thought we defended well and unlike in previous games when we’ve been two-nil up we very much put the emphasis on Hendon to break us down rather than gifting the opposition a goal. No team at any stage will dominate for 90 minutes and it’s important when this doesn’t happen in those periods of play that we stay focused and concentrate on doing the right things in the right areas which then gives us a platform to work our way back into control of the game ‘which is also much better for my heart rate’. No disrespect to Hendon but Taunton will be a tougher proposition coming off the back of a run of 8 unbeaten in the league and although we played well against Hendon there’s no doubt we will need to play even better to gain the same result. Teams like Taunton seem to be able to get the three points even when they’re not quite at their best and that is something that I’d like to think we might be able to do if we continue to defend as a team as we did on Saturday.

"On a separate issue, I’d like to thank Ricky Wellard for his time at Salisbury FC. Due to work commitments and having competition for places in his position Ricky has left the club at the weekend. He was a pleasure to work with and professional throughout but after speaking to him given the circumstances I think he understands my decision."

YOUTH - Whites 18's Down Spurs at the Ray Mac

The Young Whites cruise through to the 2nd round of the Hants Cup 

Although not a vintage display from Salisbury under 18's against a big fleet side, where it matters in a game of football the Whites where clinical, I.E in front of goal. 

The scoring nearly started with the opposition scoring, but on two occasions the home team were saved by Tom Brooker in the Whites goal. The 2nd of which saw him saving at his left hand post only for the ball to squared back across the box for a spurs attacker to blast home from 10 yards. Somehow though the keeper recovered got across his goal to get fingers on the ball to flick it over the bar. I don't think there was a player in white shirt that didn't rush over to thank him for that one, or ask him how the hell be managed to do it. 

Soon after Mark Winter and Richard Rendell's side got on the front foot, pressing the opposition in their own half with Rob Jones and Sam Butt especially intercepting passes and driving forward. But it was the managers MOTM Will Waterson whom did the damage when he won the ball some 40 yards out and drove through the opponents midfield and defence before slipping through debutant 18 year old Rafael Maior who poked it past the keeper to open the scoring. 

Rafa's second goal followed shortly after which was far more about his physical strength and deadly finishing than his opener which seemed to take an age to roll into the net. 

Next it was the already influential Waterson to take the game away from Spurs by half time. Another driving run leaving a number of defenders wondering where the ball had gone resulted in a clinical finish to make it 3. The last goal of the 1st half came from what has become a bit of a Waterson special. A free kick from some 25-30 yards out which was curled around the wall with enough dip and power on the shot to elude the diving keeper when it bounced 2 yards in front of him before nestling in the bottom left corner. 

Second half as expected Spurs came at the whites from the whistle but with a 4 goal cushion there was no need for panic stations when they did eventually find the net. Salisbury almost immediately put out any fire the opponents had built up when Aiden Savage ended a brilliant team move by slotting home. Soon after the now showboating Waterson cross resulted in the visitors cross bar or post being struck for the third time on the night, however the ball eventually found its way to the Whites top goal scorer Layton Tulk who does not turn down chances like that to add to his seasons total. 

All in all a good night for the Whites, blooding two debutants in Rafa Maior and Ryan Cheng, six goals and now back to back wins with 10 scored and 1 conceded. 

There is not much time to recover though, the squad next set off at 7am tomorrow for a trip to face Chris Todd's (yes that Chris Todd) Torquay united in the league. 

A big thank you to all the club volunteers who turned up to get the game on last night. 

Final Score: Salisbury FC U18's 6 v 1 Fleet Spurs U18

YOUTH - Hampshire FA U18 Floodlit cup

Hants FA U18 floodlit cup

The under 18's take their first steps in the Hants FA floodlit cup this Thursday evening with the visit of Fleet Spurs to the Ray Mac.
The Visitors play in the combined counties youth league, whereas the Whites ply their trade in the south west counties youth league. So a similar situation to last Saturdays FA cup tie at the Ray Mac, which league is the stronger? With Spurs only having played one game to date (according to full time) it impossible to draw conclusions.

The Whites, on the other hand, have played 5 competitive games to date which started with that FA cup game at the Ray at the beginning of September. Anyone there that night will know the home team deserved more than the defeat in that game but injuries early in the 2nd half put paid to any fightback from going 2-3 down.

Since then the following 3 league fixtures have proved difficult with players still struggling to shake injuries picked up in the FA cup. Last Saturdays encounter with New College Swindon provided the Whites with a resounding 4 v 0 victory. No surprise that it was also the first match one of the goal scorers Brad Waters (2) had been fit to play in since then, as was influential Aiden Savage.

Salisbury are also boosted by two new signings this week to bolster attack and midfield, with striker Rafael Martins Marques Souto Maior (Rafa for short)
And attacking mid Ryan Cheng. Both bring experience of playing at a very high level. With Whites duo of Alfie Hawke and Owen Davis being unavailable to the club for this tournament both new signing will go straight into Thursday's match day squad.

Mark Winter adds a cup game under the lights at the Ray Mac is always a special occasion. But for these lads so early in the careers it is an extra special night. Would be great to get a bit of support for them in this cup. It is certainly one we would like to get a run in.
