WEYMOUTH Reserves manager Bradley Asagba has admitted he will be glad to see the back of pre-season as his side embarks on their Sydenhams Wessex League Division One campaign.
While the Reserves’ boss admitted pre-season is not his favourite time, he feels it is a good opportunity to work with the players in training.
He told Echosport: “Pre-season is not a particularly enjoyable time, but it should be because you are on the training ground and you can implement what you want to do.
“Our pre-season has been difficult for various reasons. With the season being in its embryonic stage I’m looking for us to execute our skills.”
And the next step for Asagba’s men, who finished tenth last season, will be to show if they can take their learnings into a match situation.
“Between the first team and the reserve team the lads have had quite a lot of football already and we’re looking forward to putting that into a competitive environment.
“I’m interested to see how this team can develop and show the capacity to take on board what we have been trying to develop with them and see if we can execute what we have been working on really,” he said.
Asagba would not be drawn on specifics, but admitted the players each have individual goals and targets.
He said: “We tend to make goals and targets for the players individually. Hopefully we hit those targets, take it on a game by game basis and get to where we want to be.”
