We are all set and on our way.
Our team to play today is:
Sam Cowler; Mauro Vilhete, Joe Gater, Jack Saville (c), Sam Muggleton; Keanu Marsh-Brown, Harry Taylor, David Hunt, Luke Gambin; Bernard Mensah, Charlie MacDonald.
Our subs today will be: Matt Stevens, Charlie Kennedy, Shane Cojocarel, Wesley Fonguck and John Akinde.
Jack Saville needs more games and was told at the start of the week that he would have the honour of captaining our team. Charlie MacDonald felt that he needed another game when I chatted with him on Thursday morning and I explained to him that I was not prepared to change my decision on Jack, which Charlie fully respects.
Raphael Spiegel is injured and has gone back to West Ham.
I am hoping that everybody will be fit to train on Tuesday and really want to get through to the next round today.
Well, it is a great feeling to have these young players with us starting their careers, with several making their debuts on this beautiful day with a blue sky.
God bless them,
