Agree on the kit - horrible colour - best described politely as a mix of luminous yellow & green! I do know who chooses the kit colours and I think this is a very poor decision, assuming its something we as a club had control of. That said, we are constrained by what Adidas have available given that we get the first team kit for free, so it could be it was that or nothing, and given we currently don't have a shirt sponsor, we can't really wear last season's shirt. I suspect we'll have to live with it this season, but hopefully we'll get something better next year. But I certainly don't like it!

Positives on yesterday first. I arrived an hour before kick off, and there was already a bit of a buzz around the ground that's been missing for much of the time. Good to see a number of old faces around, some of whom I don't recollect seeing since we were at Claremont Road. Hopefully they've enjoyed the experience despite the result and will be back again.

As for the game - the result speaks for itself. I'm not keen on three at the back, but Gary's clearly got his reasons for planning to play that system as we used it throughout pre-season. The performances during pre-season had been very promising, but yesterday it all seemed a bit lethargic, and Worthing were quicker to the ball, and more clinical when they had possession. Worthing also defended superbly - limiting our chances. Hopefully come 10pm tomorrow, we'll have our first points of the season on the board.

For me the most important thing yesterday was that we played a home league game at somewhere we can really call home. The result, whilst disappointing, was secondary.
