Saturday’s Friendlies: A rare George Lock goal and Blatchford double for Finchampstead

Saturday’s Friendlies: A rare George Lock goal and Blatchford double for Finchampstead

Bracknell Town’s George Lock scored a rare goal from full-back as the Robins final warm up game at Windsor finished in a 1-1 draw on Saturday afternoon.

FootballinBracknell’s Darrell Freeland was at the game this afternoon and filed the following report: “A few changes at half time saw Dan Money, Lock, Joe Grant and Joe Yeates introduced and Bracknell looked better after going in at the break level.

“A well worked move saw Lock open the scoring after a foray from right-back, played in by Money and the Robins were on top until an error from Chris Grace allowed Windsor to equalise with ten minutes left.

“In a league game Bracknell boss Mark Tallentire would be saying ‘it’s two points dropped’.”

In other games today, Finchampstead’s Danny Blatchford scored twice and Luke Axton-Hall got the third as Jon Laugharne’s side beat Fleet Spurs 3-1 at Kennels Lane.

Hayes & Yeading United under 20’s beat Ascot United 2-0 at the Racecourse Ground, our man Mark Pugh has posted a report and pictures on that one here and goals from Jake Brown and a Scott Terry penalty gave Woodley United a 2-1 win over Thames Valley Premier League side White Eagles while Division 1 East new-boys AFC Aldermaston beat Premier Division Burnham 4-0.
