13 minutes gone 2-0 Hampton.
Both goals for Ryan Hill.
Today’s starting XI is as follows: Trialist, Cox, Farrell, Inman, Wassmer, Smith, Hill, Deadfield, Coleman, Muir, Gray
No sooner has Muir made it 3-0, then Beacobsfield pull one back.
3-1 at ht, mostly very promising, just dozed off a bit for their goal.
Thanks for the updates.
Any half time changes?
Hat-trick for Ryan Hill.
Looking at the starting lineup this is beginning to look like how could start the season with a couple of changes?
Let’s see what happens in the second half.
I'm getting my info from Twitter.
61’ - Gary has made the changes and the following players have entered the pitch: Trialist, Steer, Uche, Donaldson, D’sane, Trialist, Trialist
Ft 6-1, a pretty convincing display without ever really having to put ourselves out that much. Good to see us really putting lower opposition to the sword again though.
No Riddick or Leithwaite yet again, anyone know where they are?
Both injured I think.
Both Luke and Tyrone at the ground. Most likely injured.
Ruddick has been suffering from a virus and Lewthwaite with a bad impact injury.
Much like the Ashford game, we found today pretty easy. It looked like a potential starting XI but perhaps some tweaking will be needed. Smith played defensive midfield and showed his strength and positioning although rarely got out of second gear. Coleman played wide left but not sure has showed enough for me to say he is a starter just yet. Donaldson looks a better bet and scored a well taken goal in the second half. Hill certainly has his scoring boots on just now and he and Muir are not going to be ousted barring injury. Gray and Deadfield also look certain starters and the only issue at the back is whether Steer or Farrell gets the left back slot. Very little to choose between them. Cox looks to have pole position on right back with Ruddick out with illness.
Of course it’s a squad game and we look to have very good options when injury and suspensions happen. Having said this we do need to play against stronger opposition to judge quite where we are.

Hartley Wintney had a lot more about them than either Ashford or Beaconsfield did. But there's not a lot more we can do to prove our mettle other than run up goals against these sides.
Thanks for the details folks . Looks like the team is settling down into their designated roles.
Hill looking in great form so far in pre-season. If doing a season preview I guess he’d be the one to watch/star man. Could quickly find himself a marked man this season.
Will be interesting to see how he does against the Step 1 teams in the games we have coming up.
i have no doubt that Hill could play and do well in step 1. Keep thinking his size is against him but is very tough and tenacious as well as fast and skilful
