Gary has explained his team selection in his post-match quotes which will be online later today. Staines were much nearer full strength than we were. It could be said that only Kevin Maclaren was a first-choice first-teamer in his regular position (though Charlie Goode and Andre Da Costa may have shouts about their status in the coming weeks): we were missing - by choice or necessity - our first-choice goalkeeper, 4-5 defenders, 1-2 midfielders and both strikers, plus there were at least three regulars who played out of position.
By all accounts the final score was nothing like a fair reflection of the game and if Staines keeper Jack Turner had not been absolutely outstanding we might still have got something out of the game.
I think you all know my opinion on the obscene cost of watching English football from top to bottom. No non-league team should be charging more than £10 for general admission.
