Jason Farndon was pleased with how his Under-23s side competed in this afternoon’s 3-0 win over Cardiff City at the Alan Higgs Centre.
It was a young side which saw Farndon field his development side he has been working hard with all summer, a mixture of new recruits, first year pros and those who were at the club last season.
It was the first Professional Development fixture where there has been no players from the first team gaining minutes and Jase was happy to field some of his younger players.
He said: “I keep harping on about playing young players and having a young squad and that was the team talk before the start of the game.
“The team today was the lads in the development squad who are the ones were trying to develop this year and they did well and they gave a good application this afternoon.
“All the development team knock on my door and ask why they aren’t playing when the first team aren’t involved.
“But, at the same time it’s good for some of them to train play with the first team and see what their level is and you could see Cardiff had a couple of pros in and it didn’t work for them.
“We worked together all week as a team and we did well.”
New signing for the Under-23s, David Bremang made his first start for the Sky Blues since signing last week.
David has been training with the Sky Blues all summer and has impressed Farndon, earning himself a deal and he performed well, with two assist.
Jason was impressed with Bremang in the outing against Cardiff and is looking forward to working, with what he calls a fresh talent.
“Dave is an interesting person and player.
“He is very quiet and he is a bit of an unknown, but he got two assists today and if he realised what he can do he could be a good player.
“He’s never played in an a academy before, so he is a raw and fresh talent, so we have to be patient with him.”
