Reserves lose nine goal thriller

2 weeks ago By Gary Brigden

Despite a battling performance the reserves slipped to their second pre-season defeat, losing 5-4 to Knaphill

The management team continued with the policy of putting youngsters in with the senior players, and this is giving the lads some valuable experience, and will bode well for the team and club moving forward.

For this game we had no fewer that four 16 year olds in the squad, and three other teenagers.

Half time saw the sides level at 2-2, and there was no let up in the second half with a further five goals added, unfortunately more for Knaphill than us.

On the day our goals came from George Baker (2), Chady Antonio and Kalu.
