Gary Gibbs reports on the friendly with neighbours Kennington

A good game played in the right way. With both sides missing players good chance for those to make a claim for a start come opening game of the season. We was on top most of the game breaking the deadlock after 10 minutes through Luke Burdon. At half time made 3 changes with Ryan carter coming on and grabbing a hat trick. Jordan and Brad stepped up from the reserves playing very well staking a claim for a first team place. The result goes to show we are not in it just to make the numbers up.

Good luck to Eagle Nicole

Best wishes to Nicole Pepper who is lining up to play for the Crystal Palace Women’s first team this coming season
