I spoke to Graham Baker this morning to discover the latest position re Peter Vincenti’s loan.
Graham confirmed that there was a possibility that Peter’s arrival might have to be delayed. Stevenage Borough have picked up some injuries and might need to hold on to Peter to provide cover. Graham expects to receive a firm decision from Graham Westley later today. I asked Graham if there had been any suggestion that the loan deal might have to be called off altogether but he said that this had not been mooted. If Peter can join us from tomorrow, as originally agreed, there is, apparently, no prohibition on his appearing against his parent club in tomorrow’s friendly game
Graham said that last night’s game was very similar in many ways to the match at Godalming. He’d had to play a very young side and ‘you can’t really get away with playing a whole team of youngsters against men’, as he put it. Nevertheless, he was pleased with some individual performances, mentioning Matty Ferdinando in particular.
Graham said that Rodney Chiweshe had still been suffering from a slight groin strain, so he had not taken any kicks last night and had thrown the ball out each time. Graham hopes to give him some more time between the posts on Saturday and will then make a decision on his future.
Charlie Moone’s injury last night was just a tightening of his thigh and he was taken off for precautionary reasons.
Aswad is suffering from a dead leg and is doubtful for tomorrow’s game.
