Friendly vs AFC Rushden Diamonds
Comprehensive 8-1 win. A very good team effort and a chance for the new players to show their skills. Shout out Sammy for 4 assists and being man of the match.
Friendly vs Old Grammarians Osprey
The Eagles lost todays match on a scoorchingly hot day. Few keys players missing from the defense meant that their main striker had more time than would normally be allowed. Eagles started well and had good possession but could just not break beyond the midfield. A few descisions did not go Eagles way with a dodgy handball leading to a 3rd goal for the Ospreys. Later in the game they had a few balls beyond the Grammarians defense but just could not convert to goals. Shout out to Jack R for a wonder shot from long range that kissed underside of the crossbar on it's way in.
Many thanks go out to Richard Burton for all the work, effort and euthusiasm he puts into training the boys. Thanks too to Martin Short for joining the coaching team - much needed as the squard grows in size for the coming season.

Friendly vs Vicarage Farm
Today's game was against league one team of Vicarge Farm. From the off the Eagles battled hard and won more of the 50-50 balls, showed plenty of passing forwards and ultimately had the most possision. They were clearly up to the task of playing the tough opposition, on 3 occasions they had a lead that got equalised. A cheeky lob over the goalie saw them take the game 4-3. Shout out to goalie Louis for saving a penalty.
Friendly vs Old Grammarians Falcons
Today the Eagles played a friendly against newly promoted Old Grammarians Falcons. The game started quite even with Eagles taking a two goal lead followed by two for Falcons to level the game at half time. Eagles managed to play some nice pass and move football and broke through a few times to end the game with a 6-2 win.
