Barwell lost 2-0 at home to a lively Solihull Moors side who turned out with a strong squad in their first preseason friendly of the new campaign.
Canaries boss Jimmy Ginnelly reflected after the game that it was a useful run out but that it was Solihull’s strength in depth that was the difference:
“It was a great workout for the lads and good minutes in the bank. We did very well for 60/70 minutes but the big difference was the strength of the squads. They had subs who were top class players and ours were trialists.”
Jimmy was full of praise for Elliot Percival at right back:
“He did very well. Newport and Bolton are interested in him but I’d have him for Barwell if I can.”
When asked about Ryan Seal joining, Jimmy had this to say:
“He has played well in the 3 games so far and is settling in well. He is vocal on the pitch and the lads like that. He doesn’t look out of place or out of his depth. He is going to be a great player for us.”
