Colby's ready for new season

25 July 2019

Accrington Stanley's new striker Colby Bishop admits he's ready and is looking forward to the new season.

The 22-year-old, who joined the club from Leamington, grabbed his first goal for the club in the 1-1 draw with Preston North End and he thinks that the way we played shows what the current squad has to offer.

"I think it went well, it was obviously a tough test, they were a very good team and they moved the ball well.

"We handled it really well, and in the second half I thought that we did extremely well.

"They're a Championship side, but I thought we did very well, we kept our shape and I think going forward it looks very positive."

Full-back Callum Johnson provided the assist for Bishop's goal on Tuesday night, and the striker acknowledged that the club has a lot of talented wide players.

"I'm looking forward to the season because I can tell already that we've got some very good players out wide and they can put a good ball in."

John Coleman's side take on Morecambe in their final pre-season friendly on Saturday, and Bishop knows that it'll be a tough game and that they'll have to work really hard.

"I think it'll be a different type of game to the other night, but I think it'll still be a tough encounter, we'll have to work really hard and hopefully we'll get the result."

Stanley's final pre-season friendly will now be played at Lancashire FA on Saturday 27th July, 3pm kick-off.
