Team News For Fleet

Tomorrow night we take on Fleet Town FC in the North Hampshire Senior Cup at Winklebury in a 7.45pm kick off where a blend of first team and academy players will be on show under the lights of Basingstoke.

Dan Brownlie has revealed his squad ahead of the fixture…

Defenders: Dan Williamson, Rob Sheridan, Daryl Wollers, Dan Morrisey, James Haworth

Midfielders: Anton Rodgers, D’andre Brown, Hugo Staunton, Jack French

Forwards: Brad Wilson, Joe Western, George Reid, Lloyd Snell, McKoy Palmer

Keepers: Joel Halliday, Arren Warner 

Dan Brownlie commented: “It’s a great opportunity for some of our young players, but it was equally important we found a good balance and blend. For those lads to understand the way we play, they have to be amongst it, not just sent out with direction –  it was important to me that we have some experienced bodies around them. We know Fleet are going to travel with a strong squad, so it’s going to be a great test.”

“Whilst this game brings an opportunity to look at some of the youngsters, it’s a match – and when there’s a match to be played, we’ll always do our best to win it. We’ve no doubt that our supporters will be out in full force to see the emerging talent, but this is very much a first team fixture with some added youth, not the other way round. It will be a great experience for them to sample our much championed atmosphere – so I hope they get the traditional vocal support that we so proudly boast here at Basingstoke.”
