We Need To Focus On Us Said Beadle




Hereford FC start life in the National North next Saturday with the visit of Blyth Spartans to Edgar Street.

How much does Peter Beadle know about them?

"We know that we are going into games that are going to be tough," he said in his post-match interview.

"This week we'll do our homework, if we can we'll look at some footage. We'll speak to a few people up that way who may have played them last year.

"Once the season starts it changes a little bit because we have access to footage of all the games so we can be more prepared.

"However like last year most importantly we need to focus on us and make sure we are as right as we can be and ready as we can be.

"Obviously we want to pinpoint certain things of every team, their strengths and weaknesses but it's all about us on the day as we've shown today.

"I thought between the boxes we played really well but the difference was in both boxes, we were not quite as clinical as they were.

"You look at some of those players out there today, Tomlin, Pilkington, Bogle, the boy on the wing, these are players that have played in the Championship, some in the Premiership.

"They are no mugs, they are a good side and they came today and they didn't stroll through the game they put a shift in and we matched them for periods.

"We didn't have that bit of extra quality but that's why we are where we are and they are where they are.

"But it was ever so pleasing and it bodes well when we start playing teams at our level it will be a bit more of an even playing field and hopefully we can continue to move forward."

Beadle later spoke about the fitness of players.

"For the players it's all about the individual and making sure they are as fit as they can be.

"They all have different types of fitness. No two players are the same really when you do their running and their measurements and all the testing then there are very few who are exactly the same.

"Some prefer to play games to get fit, some prefer to run to get fit.

"As for the quality I think we are on a par as to where we were last year.

"We've lost Jimmy, Keiran is not the same player. We've brought in Harry, Harry is not the same as John.

"I think we are as strong if not a bit stronger than we were last year."
