Fitchett gets the "upper hand" on legend Edgar Davids
ENERGETIC marksman Dan Fitchett enjoyed squaring up against Netherlands legend Edgar Davids on Saturday and reckons he got the “upper hand”.
The lone striker battled it out with Barnet skipper/player-manager Davids for 90 minutes and managed to lose his marker for his opening goal, which looked enough to secure three points, writes Joel Holt.
However, Barnet came back to level and two late goals saw the hosts win 3-1 to end Salisbury’s unbeaten streak.
“It looked like we were going to win,” the 22-year-old said.
“It was a great experience playing against Edgar Davids. He gave me a bit of banter, jip and hassle but I gave it back and I felt like I had the upper hand on him.
“I’m sure back in the day Edgar was a bit quicker but I believe I’ll gain a lot of experience from playing against top players.”
Fitchett, who spent part of pre-season trialling at League Two side Southend United, has three goals to his name so far but is eyeing up more.
“I’m really enjoying life in Conference Premier and I love the position I’m in,”
added Fitchett, pictured below.
“If I carry on adding goals to my name, I’ll only keep on progressing. Goals like Saturday help and I’ll look to keep adding to my tally.
“We’ve set the standard high and who says we can’t go on another unbeaten run because we have the quality in this team to do well.”
