Moyo pleased with Rovers workout

Moyo reflects on second friendly…

Harriers defender Cliff Moyo was pleased with the way that Harriers matched League One opponents Bristol Rovers on Saturday, with the match ending 1-1.

The side from The Memorial Stadium visited Aggborough with a side packed with Football League experience, but Harriers opened the scoring through Ashley Chambers.

Tom Nichols then equalised for The Gas shortly after half time, before both sides made numerous changes to their teams – Harriers ending the match with all outfield players being either current Academy players or graduates, but worked hard to ensure that match ended level.

Reflecting on the performance, Moyo was was pleased and pull of praise for the impact made by the Academy players.

“…it’s great as you’re constantly doing something that you love – that’s every little boy’s dream!..” Cliff Moyo

“It was a good performance in the first half, we stuck to the game plan as they’re a League One side, but we matched up to them,” said Moyo.

“In the second half, a few of the young lads came on and I thought they did very well.

“It’s never easy coming into a high tempo game, and Bristol Rovers put a strong squad out in the second half.

“It was a tough test for all of us, but we did well”.

Having recently signed from fellow National League North side Guiseley, Moyo has been enjoying a return to full time football, and is aiming high ahead of the new season.

“I’m enjoying it, it’s a good change as I’ve not been full time for a couple of years, but it’s great as you’re constantly doing something that you love – that’s every little boy’s dream!”, said Moyo.

“I think it’s showing on the pitch that everyone believes in what we need to do – that’s the main thing – but we don’t want to get too excited, we need to be humble and do things right, listen to the gaffer and Russ, and prepare right for the season.

“We want to win this league and everything that we do from now up until the season starts, and all the way through, we know where we want to be and we have got to go for that!”.

Harriers are next in action against Stourport Swifts on Tuesday 16th July, a 7:45pm kick off at Walshes Meadow.
