Hereford United’s U18’s went down to a 2-0 defeat away at Plymouth Argyle earlier this week and after a 350 mile round trip, that included a 6.45am departure from Edgar Street, Bulls coach John Layton could be forgiven for thinking about it as an instantly forgettable experience.
However while his team did not return with any points, Layton has started to notice general improvements to their play.
“Although another defeat, I can see improvements each week in different areas,” Layton told the clubs website.
“We are getting much more resilient as a group and I can see that with each game”.
Asked about the future of Hereford’s opponents, he added:
“I was speaking to their (Plymouth) coaches after the game who said that all of their squad had been with the club since the age of 9. That’s a great testimony to their youth set and the work they’ve done over a period of time.”
“I hope their financial is resolved soon because it would be a shame to see that wasted.”
