Steve delighted as Tom Whelan agrees new deal

INFLUENTIAL midfield player Tom Whelan has agreed a new deal to stay with the Whites for the new season.

Tom, 20, joined the club from Poole Town last season and played a key role in the Sydenhams Wessex League Premier Division title win and run to the FA Vase semi-final, winning the Supporters Club Young Player of the Year award.

"I'm delighted Tom has agreed to stay," said Whites manager Steve Claridge. "He is a talented player more than capable of stepping up to Evo-Stik Southern League South and West Division."

Tom's commitment means that Steve's squad is nearing completion two weeks ahead of the first friendly against Bristol Rovers at the Ray Mac on July 9th and six weeks before the big league kick-off on August 6th.

"We're not far away," said Steve. "I've still got one or two slots I want to fill. We need a bit more up front, for example.

"But we've got irons in the fire and I will be looking at quite a few triallists in the pre-season friendlies.

"The good thing is that so many of last season's squad that we wanted to keep are returning and we've added quality players like Justin Bennett, Lewis Benson and Josh Warren.

"Now is not the time to be hasty and just get players in. I want to see who's available still come pre-season because there may well be some bargains still out there.

"What I am not going to do is pay over the odds for anyone. There are a couple I have been interested in but they wanted too much and have gone elsewhere.

"We will get the right players at the right price, players who buy into what we are looking to achieve, and I know we are going to be competitive again."

The squad return to training on Saturday July 2nd but Steve has made it clear to the players what he expects.

"I've spoken to all of them and told them that I expect them to return with a good level of fitness already.

"Pre-season will not be about getting players fit. They should already have been working on that over the summer.

"What pre-season is about is playing matches and getting them match-sharp ready to hit the ground running."

Youth Round up - 28th January

Rain was the big winner this weekend with very few fixtures beating the elements, However for three of our young teams it was game ON.

Dave 'Robbo' Robinson took his under 13 blacks marching into the semi finals

With the league all but sewn up already the blacks turned their attention to the quarter finals of the Tommy Traynor Trophy. The opposition where from two divisions higher than the whites outfit, and are themselves top of their division. This made on paper at least Salisbury the underdogs. So a tough game was anticipated and no one was left disappointed with what transpired.

As in all games this season the blacks team trust and composure shocked the opposition and it was a first half dominated by the thus far unbeaten whites. At half time Salisbury were 3 v 0 up with Penna, Hunter and McMullan finding the net.

The second half got underway and Testlands scored soon after with a long range effort. Understandably the lifted their spirits as they sensed a way back into this knockout game. A somewhat fortunate 2nd goal then made for a cracking if not extremely nervous final 10 minutes. Resolute defending and sheer hard work on a very wet and heavy pitch was rewarded with the final whistle and a place in the semi finals.

The Salisbury team spirit was epitomized by Matthew Shobbrook who put in a sterling MOTM performance.

Development and fun more important than results for the Under 8's
Salisbury under 8's (Saturday) returned to Testway league action on Sunday against Andover shooters blue. The Whites started strong from the off, giving Andover no time at all on the ball. The Andover side found it hard getting out of their own half with Salisbury's high pressing game. The whites keeper Elliot Eyers was not really involved in the 1st half of this game. Some excellent creativity from the youngest in the team, Theo Crew was proving too much for the other team to deal with throughout the game. In the second half Jason Morgan gave his charges some restrictions which were intended to even the game up and help both teams to take part in the game and develop their skills, a move that was praised by the opposition coaches at the end of the game.

We would like to wish Andover shooters all the best for the remainder of the season.

Clarendon V Salisbury FC Under 7's

After a long time without a game due to the weather, it was great to get back to having a bit of game time on a Sunday morning. And as the photo above shows, for the players at this age, there is no such thing as too muddy a pitch for a game of football.

So the short trip to Clarendon for a morning kick off was looking good with the sun shining and our players raring to go. Clarendon has always been a tough side to breakdown, however on this occasion the little Whites got off to a strong start controlling the game in the first half. Some fair but strong tackles, great vision and fantastic team play saw Salisbury just edge the opening half of this game. As expected Clarendon battled hard and got themselves back into the game in the 2nd half. However, Salisbury showed how much the team has come on by having a strong last 10 minutes and probably just edged the game overall.

All the players in black and white (black and mud by the end of it) had a great game and some stand out performances from Maisie, Warren and Josh. Man of the match went to Goodridge-Reynolds for a strong defensive performance.
