Preview: Salisbury v AFCB Development squad

I have to admit as to not knowing much about Salisbury City FC. AFCB's Development squad will know a whole lot more though when they take them on at the Raymond McEnhill stadium at Old Sarum on Wednesday night. Chris Hargreaves and Stephen Purches will be checking over the triallists no doubt, while getting the squad's fitness up. I doubt Purchy will have a run out in this one although you never know.

Salisbury City FC now play in the Conference, so they are at a good level. They won promotion last season from the Conference South through the play-offs. Darrell Clarke left the manager's position in the summer and went to Bristol Rovers as their new assistant manager. 

Mikey Harris,28, was only appointed the Whites' manager this July, having been coach and assistant manager at the club for the past six years. Mikey is English football's youngest manager. The ground at Salisbury has a capacity of 5000 of which 500 is seated.

Ex-Bournemouth player Warren Feeney is player assistant manager at Salisbury City FC. Jamie White a 23-year old is their top striker scoring 27 goals last season to help the Whites reach promotion to the Conference. Ben Wright, 24, is another of their strikers recently bought from Forest Green Rovers. Chis McPhee, 30, is a dangerous and experienced midfielder at the club who will also be one to look out for.

It will be interesting who plays in goal for AFCB in this fixture as Allsop has not had many outings and may want some game time ahead of Saturday, if he is to play against Charlton. It is likely that Jordan Chiedozie will have the chance to extend his goal record at the top of this year's pre-season goal scorer's table.

For all those going to the game on Wednesday, have a good one.
