Holmer Green FC Res 4-3 Ascot Utd Development
By Gareth Williams
Friendly game at Bisham Abbey
As we haven't had a competitive game since the 12th December, and with top of the league, Buckingham Town our next league fixture, the management thought it prudent to arrange a friendly game to blow away some cobwebs, and work on some team issues.
Ascot have a very similar squad and playing style to us, a young team who like to play football, and on the perfect 3g pitch, both teams took advantage and played some excellent stuff, Holmer were excellent in the first half going in 3-0 with goals from Mason Wright and a brace from Mikey Benning, but after a raft of changes, Ascot came out flying and soon brought it back to 3-2, Holmer always looked dangerous and after a couple of close chances, Nigel Mpofu made it 4-2 with and excellent finish, Ascot pulled one more back before the final whistle.
A good workout, with lots to take from it, credit to both teams for playing the right way in a good competitive spirit!
