Hartford Under 21's start their first season in the North West Under 21 Development League in the West Division, with 19 year old manager Harry Bennett in charge, we spoke to Harry as Hartford prepare for their first game of the season.
Pre-season has gone well for Bennett's team, who have improved game on game as they get closer to the big kick-off.
"We didn't start off the best but we have improved in every game we've played. It has given us the chance to try different formations, and to see what some of the teams we'd be playing against this season are like".
The club are aiming high in their first season at this level, very much being the unpredictable team in the West Division as a new club.
"We are a new team and haven't played any of the teams in the league before, we aren't sure what to expect".
"We definitely want to be pushing towards the top end of the table but it's important we compete in every game we play".
Hartford start the West Division on Sunday 10th September as they face Malpas.
"Everyone is ready for the first game, I think everyone just wants to get started now".
"There is a lot of lads in our squad so the competition is high to be in the 16 for the first game of the season".
