Reaction: Elliott on Chelsea under-21s

26 October 2021

First team coach Wade Elliott felt there were plenty of positives both on and off the pitch from Cheltenham Town's Papa John's Trophy penalty shootout victory over Chelsea under-21s.

He was pleased with the performances put in by a young Robins side against the youngsters belonging to the current European champions, and also was pleased to see a crowd of just under 3,000 inside the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

"There were lots of good individual performances. The atmosphere and the turnout I think was a big positive. But probably the biggest plus is the collective. As a team performance I thought it was really good," he said.

"We asked them beforehand to be together, whether that's tactically as a team when we press everybody goes together, but also spirit wise - everybody looking after each other and encouraging and supporting.

"There were lots of pleasing aspects from the evening."
