Tim Flowers reacts to Tamworth win
*The Gaffer has his say on this evening's friendly - by Luke Turner*
PUBLISHED: 10th Jul 18

Solihull Moors manager Tim Flowers was pleased with the way his side approached their first pre-season test, as they ran out 3-0 winners at Tamworth.

Goals from new signing Danny Wright, Kwame Thomas and Jamey Osborne sealed the game for the Moors and while there’s still plenty to work on, Flowers was impressed overall.

He said: “I thought that in the first half, we looked to turn them round – we were fairly effective at that. We got in two or three times, worked Jaz Singh on a number of occasions and probably had eight or nine attempts on goal.

“I don’t remember Ryan Boot having to make a save. We looked fairly steady.

“I haven’t really scratched the surface yet with anything set-piece-wise. They were poor today, but we haven’t even had a look at them yet.

“It was more of a fitness exercise for us today and a little look at some shape and some patterns. Some of which worked and some we need to do more of.

“In the second half, both teams made some changes and that tends to break the game up a little bit. It became a little bit end-to-end and one or two were looking a bit leggy.

“They’ve had 10 fairly intense days of training on a rock hard pitch which isn’t ideal. Liam Daly’s had a bit of a tight thigh and Adi Yussuf has had a tight calf – they were rested.

“All in all it’s a good result, a clean sheet but still plenty to do.”

Solihull supporters were given their first look at recent recruits Ryan Boot, Alex Gudger, Wright and Luke Maxwell at the Lamb.

On their performances, Flowers said: “I thought they did well. Wrighty got his goal which is great – all strikers want to get off the mark and he has done. Kwame as well, got off the mark.

“Gudger looked steady at the back, he’s a decent all round player. He can handle the ball, he’s aggressive and he’s got decent pace.

“There will be big shoes to fill as Fiacre Kelleher did well for us (last season). We identified Gudger as a very good prospect so I thought he did well.

“We’ve got plenty of games to come and we’ll obviously improve.”

And despite still needing to add a couple of finishing touches, Flowers is happy with the way that his squad is shaping up ahead of the upcoming campaign.

“Everybody knows we’re looking for a left-back. The trialist who came in tonight did well, he had a good game and was energetic.

“There might be one more other than that to come in. Other than that, we’re pretty much set I think.

“We managed to keep the core of what we had last year and have added new faces to it.”
