Midfielder Sonny Whittingham knows what to expect when the B Team face Worksop Town on Tuesday 9 August 2022.
Jon Worthington’s Young Terriers travel to the Windsor Foodservice Stadium for their friendly against the Tigers, which kicks off at 7.15pm.
18-year-old Whittingham spoke about how he’s found his first pre-season with the B Team.
“As a group we’ve been good, we’ve had some very good performances, and we’ve had a positive start.
“I think the squad have gotten to know each other well through going to Northern Ireland.
“We have had some challenges and it hasn’t been a smooth ride, but through the rough patches we’ve stayed together, and we’ve had some good results.
“Pre-season is probably the hardest bit of the season, getting back fit and getting back into the routine after having time off.
“It has gone well for a lot of us, everyone is looking fit and strong, and performances are looking strong.”
The 2022/23 season has seen the youngster step up to the B Team, where he’s taking the opportunity to gain experience with new players.
“Stepping into the B Team is a different challenge, I’m playing better and stronger players, but it has been good for me, not just on the pitch but off the pitch as well.
“I’ve been getting to know different players, older players, and players that are closer to the First Team.”
Looking ahead to Tuesday’s game against Worksop, the midfielder says he knows what to expect, and believes they can compete against the strong side.
“We know what Worksop Town are like, we expect the ball to come long, so we’ve been focusing on the fundamentals in training.
“We know it’s going to be a challenge because they’re older and have more experience, but we know what we need to do.
“We had a bit of a negative last game against Sheffield United, but we have reviewed it and we know what we can improve on.
“Worksop are a good side; they have a couple of ex-professionals and so they’ll be more experienced, but we know how to play against these teams and implement our style into these games.”
