“I am going into this weekend feeling confident with the training we have been having against the Watford U18’s on Friday nights, We know it won’t be easy but we are confident in our own abilities that we can come out on top with the experience the majority of the players have had in high pressure situations in the past. We go with confidence but are humble and are prepared to learn”.
