Greaves Pleased After Opening Day Victory!

Updated: Aug 20, 2019

Manager Danny Greaves was delighted as his Robins side collected all three points on the opening day, after a hard fought but deserved 1-0 victory over Highworth Town.

Returning debutant Will Hailston, who had been prolific in pre-season, scored the only goal of the game at The Save-On-Tyres Stadium to give The Robins the spoils.

Greaves said: "Naturally, I'm very pleased that to get our first win and 3 points on the board on the opening day.

"As expected, it was a tough game but I was really happy with the football we played and the chances we created.

"On another day we could have scored a few more, but their keeper was outstanding and deservedly won man of the match, and I am sure with more games under our belts we will be converting more of those chances.

"As we all know when you don't take those chances the game can become tense, the opposition take more risks, but I felt we dealt with that extremely well.

"I though 1 to 11, plus the lads who game on were superb and all carried out what was asked of them.

"We will need that, and we will need the whole squad over the course of a long season. Today was proof on how tough and competitive this league will be.

"We now go into Wednesday's game against Bideford who picked up a great point against one of the promotion favourites in Moneyfields, but we have done our homework and will approach the game properly and we know we will need to be on our game to get a positive result."
