Eagles first team finished its pre season run of friendly games with a hard fought 3-2 win over a strong and skillful Hoddesdon reserves side at Pixmore. Against the run of play in the first half the visitors scored first after Eagles defenders totally failed to mark a Hoddesdon player standing on the penalty spot. He skillfully brought down a cross from the left and hammered the ball into the back of the Eagles net.
Second half was fairly even as both sides made changes to the team members, but in the last half hour sub Charlie Thake scored 2 excellent goals from shots inside the penalty area despite tight marking, and Paul McGennity bundled the ball over the line in a goalmouth scramble several minutes from the end.
