Tonbridge Angels manager Steve McKimm concerned by his side's lack of pre-season goals

01 August 2014

A lack of goals is starting to worry Tonbridge boss Steve McKimm – with his side registering just two so far in pre-season.

Angels lost for the second consecutive game – and a fourth time in five friendly games – after Farnborough won 2-0 at Longmead on Tuesday night.

That defeat came just four days after Ramsgate beat Angels 1-0 at the same venue. But it’s not the lack of victories McKimm said are a cause for concern.

He said: “The results in these games are not worrying me – they are what they are (pre-season games). It’s a lack of scoring goals which is something that needs work on.

“Yet it’s not through a lack of trying because we have been getting into good areas in all of the games."

One player McKimm hopes will address the severe shortage of goals is young striker Harrison Tweddell, 18. The former Dagenham and Redbridge striker, who has scored one of the two goals to-date, signed this week after impressing McKimm in his three trial games.

McKimm  said:  “He’s young, eager, he’s got plenty of talent and he’s willing to learn. He’ll prove to be a great signing.”

Tonbridge are in action at Walton Casuals on Saturday.
