Dave Carter declared himself pleased with the application shown by Moneyfields in their 2-0 pre-season friendly win at Chichester
First-half goals from Conor Bailey and Lloyd Rowlett settled the match, with Bailey’s goal from the penalty spot.
Carter wanted his players to take it seriously and they did just that.
The Moneys boss said: ‘I asked the players to treat it as a league game and not just a friendly.
'They did that and produced a good professional performance.
'We were very dominant, particularly in the first half before I rang the changes.
'Importantly we didn't concede which was something I was looking for after conceding three in each of our last two friendlies.'
Bailey gave Moneyfields the lead from the penalty spot after Joe Briggs had been brought down in the area.
Before half-time new centre-midfield signing Lloyd Rowlett, from Pagham, extended their lead with a shot drilled in low from the edge of the area.
