Speaking after the games, manager Jonny Pearce said: “I was impressed with the start the Yellows made today but they soon found out you cannot afford to switch off, it nearly cost us in the first game and it cost us in the second game.

“But Harborough are a decent outfit who have played together for some time and we have a new group of players playing together and have some additions to come so although I’m disappointed with the loss I’m excited about what this yellow team can do this season.

“Division One is going to be a hard league this season and that first game against Norwich City A was a great display of walking football, two top teams really going for it.

“Against the Steelers we looked good in possession and their keeper has made some great saves to keep them in the game but we had too much for them.

“The lads are playing with lots of confidence and it shows on the pitch. As always there are things to improve and we will work on them in training but four points from two games is a good return.”
