Hargreaves told afcb.co.uk…
“I was very satisfied how it went, and it gave me a taste of it, We tried hard with the players during the week and it was good. They listened, did really well and in the second half on Saturday did exactly what we planned. That was great because they were on the front foot, we stifled the opposition and got reward.
“I’m really pleased for the players because they have had a bit of a tough couple of weeks. They needed to give a performance, and they did just that. It would have been great for Eddie and Jason sat in the stands to see that. They can now start on the back of a win and he is taking over a good group of players.”
“There is no time to sit back and relax; we have to prepare for the Winchester game. I would expect a few first team players who need a game will feature. My lads will be involved too, and it’s a nice game for them to look forward to. It’s under lights at the stadium, against decent opposition, so we are all looking forward to it.”
