Bedworth Utd 0 Harriers 2
The Harriers put out another young side at Bedworth Utd this evening in their second friendly of the week. This time round it seemed an even weaker side on paper with just three first teamers playing: Luke Maxwell, Jake Green and for the first time this close season Jamie Spencer. There was no Amadou Alassane even though it had been hinted at that Gary Whild wanted to see more of the ex Le Havre striker.
The first half was a quiet affair even though we did get the ball into the net early on when Duncan Culley, formerly with Bromley and Farnborough, bundled the ball into the net but it was ruled out for offside. Son after Dan Sweeney had the first shot on target when he beat his man to rifle in a shot that the Bedworth keeper pushed away but only as far as Kieren Westwood who sent his return shot wide.
The second period was slow to get going too but eventually we opened the scoring. It was Sweeney, from the Harriers Academy, who finished from close range after being supplied with the ball by the ex Stoke City youngster George Caton. A minute later Caton himself finished off the evenings scoring with a goal that gave the home keeper no chance of stopping.
With seconds left on the clock the Harriers keeper for the night, Dean Snedeker formerly of Carshalton, stopped a goal bound shot at point blank range to keep our sheet clean for a second game running.
Next up is the annual pilgrimage to Stourport Swifts on Saturday afternoon.
Snedeker, Jones, Williams, Maxwell, Westwood, Green, Forsyth, Hales, Sweeney, Spencer (Cator), Culley (L Palmer).
