A look ahead to the start of the new youth season
Eric Kinder spoke to us this morning about the youth season kick off on Saturday morning.
"There's been an excitement around the place all week because the season kicks off at all levels tomorrow.
"The lads have prepared well and hopefully it'll come together for them against Accrington.
"They had their first day off in five weeks on Wednesday but we followed that with a double session on Thursday. We'll work on getting everything right today and then we'll see if we can win the first game of the season, because that has never happened in all the years I've been here. It would be nice to change that particular statistic.
"I'm looking forward to the new season. It's a good group and if things come together for them they should push on quite nicely."
