The first league cup match is always special for a newly promoted team into the football league. Visitors Nottingham Forest of the Championship provided a very tough hurdle.

Competitive starting debuts for Howell, McLaughlin, Mawene, Nicholson, Parkin and Ball meant that many fans were trying to work out who was who! Whilst there was an obvious gap in class, it wasn't too obvious. Forrest fans must have been nervous when the two teams went in at half time 0-0.

Dexter Blackstock got the all important goal in the second half which was enough to see the former European cup winners through to the next round.

This Saturday bring Torquay to Fleetwood in the opening game of the season. A perfect chance, at home, for the new players and the team to make their mark on the season.
