Only 3 players stood out to me during the game at Wrexham this evening, but on the bright side it was only a pre-season friendly.
After the 0-0 draw at the Racecourse the three players that stood out for me were:
Abbey had a solid first half under what seemed to be a lot of pressure on the right side of defence. He made few mistakes and to me looks like he is more that capable of replacing Danny Woodards at the start of the season if he's required to do so.
Bopp seemed to play well throughout the game, but especially in the second half. He spread the ball around well and wasn't afraid to have a crack at goal, which is nice to see. Bopp could play a big part next season if he remains fit and gets a good run in the team.
This was the first time I've seen Grant play. He had a quiet first half on the left wing, but come the second half gave some glances of brilliance. Switching between the left and right wing he ran at defenders and managed to get a few good balls into the box. With time I think Grant will be a excellent signing.
Of the rest of the players Collis made some comfortable saves and looked in control of the goal. Buxton did OK at the back next to Baudet and in my opinion looks more stable than McCready, he didn't set the world alight but I think is worth a 1 year contract. Eddie Johnson seemed to work hard in the first half but never really got anywhere and Maynard looked as if he was playing at half pace.
The Alex looked comfortable together, although there still does seem to be something missing, but its hard to say from a pre-season friendly.
