Eaton Socon 3, Cranfield United 1

6th August 2016 :: Friendly Matches

Eaton completed their pre season preparations with a fine 3-1 win over Beds Premier side Cranfield Utd. Eaton now looked well prepared for the coming season and go into Tuesday nights league opener with Hardwick with a lot of confidence.

As with the game on Wednesday Eaton created lots of chances but failed to take any of them. And this went in until the 59th minute when finally Eaton broke through when Eaton were awarded a penalty. Which Bassett put away. Minutes later it was 2-0 when good work from Wilks saw the United player turned the ball into his own net. United came back and reduced the gap when Williams turned the ball past Milky to score a quite spectacular own goal. Eaton though regained the two goal lead when Spavins headed home.

Good win, Good pre season, And now the fun begins. The RESSIES drew 2-2 with Eynesbury Rovers Res. Aiden Stockwell opened the scoring. Only for Rovers too score twice to take the lead. However Clarkey Godfrey equalised to ensure Eaton took a share of the spoils. Good day. Now all eyes turn to Tuesday...
