The friendlies we have away need to be competitive and not strolls around whupping some now league minnows like Retford/Gainsboro, they're not even Conf North standard now. Ok they're ok for YT outings but first team would get zero value in them. Away friendlies for first team need to be at places of the standard of Clownty, Grimsby, York, Harrogate and Altrincham. Decent standards (especially Harrogate, who're the same standard as us if not better) to test the players being as though we have just the one home friendly against decent opponents.
We don't want folk coming on here saying, 'we're struggling because PS was was Tommy' etc, etc after 10 games. So we have to find decent quality to play.
Basking in the late evening sunshine watching our team cane Gainsboro 7- 0 whilst troughing a tray of chips down us won't be a useful outing now the play at the level AFC do. We may as well go to AFC, it'd help a local club out if that's the standard of friendly we're looking at.
