'If It's Football, It's Vital'

More From Guy Post Bognor

Guy Whittingham has spoken in a bit more depth following the 4-2 win over Bognor Regis, and he's also talked about the importance of the team bonding due to the influx of new players.

Speaking to the Official Site Whittingham again said that at this stage of pre season it is all simply fitness that matters, tactics and technical development can come later once the all the players have a good baseline that will let them last 90 minutes, and he pleased that we had a 'sensible' referee against Bognor who allowed the players plenty of drinks breaks in the scorching sun.

Guy confirmed we suffered a few knocks from the game, but non of them are really any cause for concern and should clear up with a bit of rest and physio.

The players are now set for a week long training camp at Colchester, because one thing he wants them to do is really bond so they'll give their all for each other on the pitch in the coming season.

'We've had such an influx of new players here and it's vital that they're able to get together and learn more about each other. They're all got on really well with each other so far, there's a closeness and a bond really starting to take shape. That side can be difficult, but we made sure that as well as getting the right footballers, we also got the right characters.'

Although no player has yet played more than 45 minutes in a game, Whittingham says that's likely to change for a few of them in the upcoming game against Braintree as he looks to 'push' a few who are likely to be guaranteed starters.
