Barry Happy With Posh Runout

12 October 2016

Brad Barry was happy to have come through Town’s Central League fixture away at Peterborough United unscathed.

The defender got 60 minutes under his belt on Tuesday as a youthful Robins’ Development side went down 5-2 to a Posh team who fielded experienced Football League campaigners in the ilk of Michael Bostwick, Ricardo Almeida Santos and Jerome Binnom-Williams.

, and the wing-back was pleased to have come through the test with flying colours.thIt was Barry’s first taste of action since he sustained a hamstring injury during the game against Bury on September 17

“It was everything I needed. The result wasn’t great but it is a learning curve for everybody, especially the younger lads,” he told

“I just needed to get the minutes after coming back from injury. I feel absolutely fine and when I started I felt a little bit leggy but as the game went on I felt that I found my stride and opened my legs a little bit.

“I felt good.

“I want to ease myself back into the first-team but, at the same time, I want to get back as quickly as I can.

“Hopefully I’ll be training by the end of the week so Saturday might be a bit too soon, but we’ll see and you don’t know how things go.

“It was good to get back out there.”

And Barry felt yesterday’s Central League encounter was a good experience for the club’s Academy players who were given a runout.

“It was good for them to go up against physical players otherwise they are never going to learn,” he added.

“They had a few first-team players out there which was perfect for the young lads and it was a perfect opportunity for them.

“It is a learning curve and you need to perform as well because you get noticed.”
