 Etienne Capoue and Jerome Sinclair on target for Hornets

 Chances came and went, one such resulting in a penalty claim for a handball that Troy in particular seemed utterly convinced by and protested at length to the official in a manner that confirmed that “not quite at full pelt – it’s only a friendly after all”, in Troy’s case, means mere utter commitment rather than demonic possession.

A very entertaining performance on a lovely Summer evening with a couple of goals to savour and a chance to become more familiar with some of the new boys.  The more I see of Doucouré, the more I like him.  He has described himself as a box to box midfielder, which was every apparent in this game and he has a lovely touch.  Sinclair again looked lively and, this time, found the net.  But man of the match was Capoue who put in a typically assured performance topped off with a lovely goal.

Comet report: Stevenage suffered their first pre-season defeat of the summer, going down to Watford.

As the teams came out for the second half, Chris Day took his place in the goal in front of the travelling ‘Orns to a tremendous reception.  This baffled the chap behind us, so we had to explain that he used to play for us.  I was shocked to realize that he left 12 years ago.  Where does the time go?
