After supporting The Blues for a few weeks during their friendlies, it was finally time for our league action to begin. On Saturday (12th August) we made the journey to Brentwood Town for our opening game in The Bostik League. We made a few uncharacteristic mistakes in the first half and went into the break 2-0 down. The gaffa must have pulled out all stops in his team talk as the boys came out fighting. At 70 minutes we were still 2-0 down although there had been a number of chances. Then followed 2 minutes of incredible excitement. First, on 75 minutes, Charlie Edwards scored our opening goal through the opposing keepers legs. This was swiftly followed at 77 minutes by Ollie Sharman scoring from a fantastic cross by Tyler Hatherly. Some fans have no voices today after all the cheering. It is fantastic that we have already added a point to our tally as the new boys of the pack.

Over in the U25’s camp, we had an away friendly against London Colney Reserves. Thanks to goals from Luke Pallett, they finished the game 2-1 and very worthy winners.
Stevenage Ladies had their final pre-season friendly today (Sunday, 13th) and they were unlucky to have not kept a clean sheet in their goal fest. The final score was 7 – 1 to Stevenage Ladies.
