    Will be a second / third string made up of kids and trialists, but even so it will be interesting to see the trialists and how they do!

    Beavon as well probably, he was due to play against Bedworth but his wife had twins.

    Kids and trialists are the best members of the squad: haven't given us a reason to think they're shit yet.

    You'd think they'd have come to some sort of pay-off with Beavon by now. Fair enough he is under contract and is probably good experience to have in the dressing room, but you'd think his wages would be better spent elsewhere and he must want to actually play first team football. Unless he knows his days are numbered and is trying to get as much out of the club as possible?

    Would think he is at the wrong end is his career now. Would maybe have to drop to non league.

    Is that because of the jet lag?

    Me and my lad are probably coming over for this. Presumably Skipgate has been resolved?

    Looking at the teams, I'd Skip straight to penalties.

    Didn't realise Devon KE had gone to Nuneaton. Thought he might have gone to a lower L2 team tbh. He wasn't the greatest last season, but he performed better than some I saw play against us.

    Oh no- Devon Kelly Evans - me thinks someone in a Sky Blue shirt is going to get kicked - cue Nick telling them to snap him in half (can you imagine how small half of a Kelly Evans would be?!)

    I don't mind him too much. Not sure we have any in the team who can do a bit

    Always like the right-back Kelly-Evans (Dion/Devon, can never remember), always got stuck in and gave 100%.

    Don't think there's more than about 300 here tops. The pitch.... Well I saw better fields driving up past Marston Jabbet on the way here...

    Bore draw really. 50/50. They look more like a first team, you would back them against us in a league match. We need a couple of decent opportunities to get us going.

    Mostly Boro. Music is good though. After The Fire and Der Kommissar playing now. Great stuff.

    Any idea who the two trialists are? I’m assuming one is the French striker? How are they performing?

    French striker hasn't had much service. Number 7 the midfielder looks useful. Johnny Ngandu(?) looks good too.
