    Five additional newcomers/triallists not previously announced on the bench tonight including Yannis Ambroisine (defender) who was at Welling last season and previously Whitehawk and Leatherhead; Darnell Smith (defender) recently released by Barnet; Ambrose Gnahore (winger) a former Chelsea Academy player who had spells at a number of Isthmian and Southern League clubs before playing in Austria last season.

    Starting XI: Grainger, Case, Connors, Chapman, Orlu, Taylor, Clunis, C.Smith, Mills, Monlouis, Yusuff.

    Subs: Edwards, Ijaha, Ambroisine, Vose, Tajbakhsh, D.Smith, Gnahore + 2 others.

    Of all the new arrivals, Chapman was the one who caught the eye, but took a heavy challenge and ultimately needed Quade to be subbed back on to replace him.

    Grainger had a superb save in the first half, but other than that no-one massively stood out for me. Early days of course and playing higher level opposition nothing to be too disheartened about.

    Great to be back for another season at Champion Hill.

    Thought we were great in the first half, but Colchester's depth of talent shined in the second half.

    Have to say I wasn't that impressed by Chapman. Thought Connors started slowly but grew into the game and was our best player by the end. Pleased we've got Ambroisine - was impressed with him when he played for Welling last season.

    As mentioned it's early days and contrary to last season this is a completely new team that'll need time to gel before it can be judged.

    The striker up front for the second half was Aristede Bassele, previously of Hampton, Chelmsford and Bournemouth.

    Oh, and Welling, of course.

    Thought we looked quite promising in the first half, and unlucky not to go 1-0 up when Clunis hit the post after a terrific piece of skill. Chapman certainly stood out for me and I was quite surprised that he's only 20 as he looks and plays like someone with more experience. Both of our keepers made some good saves - will be interesting to see who ends up as number one. I felt we looked a little lacking down the left hand side of the pitch as no one seemed to be doing on that side what Clunis does on the right.

    Second half we obviously lacked a bit of shape with all the subs coming on (typical pre-season stuff really) and they ended up winning fairly comfortably. A good showing all in all though, given the gap between the two sides and how new our squad is.

    Thought it was very encouraging for a first game. What is clear is that we have 2 things that were lacking last year, leadership and the fact we will not be a soft touch.
    Liked all the midfield in the first half and think we are really strong there. Ambroisine is not signed as yet and understand we have a few more options being looked at for centre back

    Monakana is a left winger and Hunte could play there, but they were the two players not on show last night, so we should have suitable options.

    I remember Ambroisine playing against us for Leatherhead under Jimmy Bullard. He played against us for Welling at the start of last season but I think they loaned him out to an Isthmian club towards the end, although I can't recall which one.

    Formation for the first half was a bit lop-sided. Yusuff drifted out to the left, but obviously he's naturally more of a striker. Monlouis was nominally playing as the furthest left of the central midfielders but it was Connors overlapping runs that were our best attacking threat on that wing.

    Ambroisine hasn't yet signed for the club but was at training last week and also joined the squad for the spin session on Friday.

    He ended the season at Whitehawk, if memory serves.

    For those of us who couldn’t make the game, any clues on who the mysterious Sandro and JP were?

    It was nice to be back. It's going to take a while to settle in the new players, lots of friendlies to get them to gel though. Bring on the Beckenham!

    This is pure speculation (this is a forum after all) but could be the Sandro: BOSTIK LEAGUE: Higher-league winger joins Mildenhall

    Tbf, judging by the photos, I think that is 'our' Sandro.

    No idea who JP is. I'll wait for more pure speculation from pettyboy! :)
