It’s THE one time of the year when we’re all told that results don’t matter. But, if they did, Rocks fan can feel quite content with how their team have performed.
The warm-up to life back in the National League South has seen Bognor produce convincing wins over lower league opponents in Worthing (4-0), Chichester City (5-2) and Horndean (6-0).
The two matches against teams ranked above them in the football pyramid may have led to defeats.
But the Nye Camp faithful would feel as though they have seen enough in the 2-0 loss to Portsmouth and 2-1 defeat to Crawley Town to give them hope – the Rocks look fit, full of passion and displaying skill levels which could see them thrive at the next level.
And this all in spite of issues in finding and keeping a manager.
Tonight, the Rocks end their pre-season with a trip to Gosport Borough (7.45pm). It’s worth noting that 12 months ago, Bognor travelled to Privett Park and produced one of their poorest performances of recent years.
Nine months later, and Rocks fans were celebrating promotion. Who knows what this season may deliver?
