Needes a sligh edit:

Louis 1 min

A player who's signed for us but it's presumably being kept a rather poor secret so that they can take a staged photo of Spencer signing him up 35 min

A Trialist 68 min

Lenny Pidgeley's tweet, and a naughty (and accurate) reply from Andy Smart:

Welcome to the Boro', Lenny!

Excellent! Maybe he should consider a career in comedy... 😂

A very hot afternoon and a dry, dusty pitch meant it wasn't much of a spectacle. The game petered out long before full-time with both sets of players hanging on for the final whistle.

We played some nice stuff at times and, to our credit, mostly tried to put together passing moves, including playing out from the back. Not something that Spencer has encouraged in the past!

If persevered with, this tactic needs more work. We got ourselves into a terrible muddle several times, conceding possession without getting near the half-way line and, worse, presenting Westfield with some decent chances, all squandered. Like last Tuesday, it was the lack of shape in midfield that was causing the issue - to be fair, it's an area of the pitch where we are trying out several options at the moment.

A note about Westfield. A very good set-up with excellent viewing from a raised balcony. Entry was free of charge. On the pitch they looked lively (before everyone succumbed to the heat). I wish them well in their debut Bostik League season.

I'm sure that will be sorted, now that he is back Nigel!!

One of the players from Saturday is Kurtis Cumberbatch. Assumed it was a fake name to hide a trialist's identity but it's his real name. It's been retweeted by the club on Twitter so may as well post it here. Scorer of the 3rd goal?

That's a great name. Should sign him on that basis alone.

Any sightings of Hangar, Bufton, King* or Barton?

*Doesn't look to have featured in any more Woking friendlies.

Jack Barton came on as a sub on Saturday after trialling for Hartley Wintney in midweek. You can draw several conclusions from that.

No doubt he's a lovely bloke, kind to cats, etc. But, would Jack make the difference at Southern League South Premier level, given last year's wipe-out from January onwards when he featured in most of the games? He's a good guy to have in the squad, but he's not the main man.

If the Club isn't focussing on acquiring the services of higher quality midfielders the season to come will be a long one. The first words on every remaining fan's lips would be "decline" and "continuing".

But, we don't play a competitive game for another 3 weeks and plenty of players will be getting bounced out of the Conference level clubs, who start a week earlier. So let's see if management have a trick up their collective sleeves. Based on what I've seen so far (Farnham & Westfield), I bloody hope so. Plucky types, possibly out of their depth, working hard and achieving not a great deal are not the answer when it comes to the real thing come 11th August.

Any team that wants to go somewhere has to have a strong spine. In goal and up front we look fine. But I'm undecided whether the current defensive line are hacking it whilst a "Steve Laidler" water carrier type midfielder is absent from the line-up. Is it the defence that is lacking or a midfielder, or both? Whichever, we'll find out in a few weeks.

I presume our Lord and Master is now back at the helm!!

JR also posted that it's gone pretty well so far, but we now need to work on plans B, C and D!!

Now that's a novelty!!

I hope the club sign a strong centre half otherwise we will again concede a lot of goals like last season. It's no good scoring three to concede four.
