LOUTH Town boss Daryl Clare admitted his side were given a ‘football lesson’ after their 8-0 home friendly defeat against Brigg Town on Thursday night.
The White Wolves boss saw his team hit for eight against the Evo Stick Divison 1 South outfit at Park Avenue.
However he admitted that it the scoreline against the Zebras bore less importance than giving his squad invaluable match fitness ahead of the new campaign.
“Tonight was a footballing lesson for us, we were outclassed and outmuscled by a decent side,” he said.
“Being loyal to all the squad, I picked a side to give everyone some match time fitness and game time.”
Daryl is currently running both the first team and reserves together and added that from now on it will be ‘the strongest 18 players for the remainder of the pre season’.
“Being beaten so comfortably is not in my mentality and that won’t happen again under my watch,” he warned.
Town will face Lincoln United in their next friendly outing next Thursday, July 19 before high profile games against Boston United and Grimsby Town.
