Rovers make double comeback

Eynesbury beat New Bradwell St Peter 3-2 in pre-season game at Hall Road

EYNESBURY ROVERS twice came from behind to beat Spartan South Midlands Leaguers New Bradwell St Peter 3-2 in a pre-season friendly at Hall Road on Saturday.

The visitors took the lead in the 12th minute but Neil Morris equalised direct from a 20-yard free-kick two minutes shy of the half-hour mark.

Bradwell regained their lead with a solo effort in the first minute of the second half, but Rovers responded again through a 67th minute Lee Bassett header.

The winning goal came 10 minutes from time when Jez McMurrough forced the ball home from close range from an acute angle.

Eynesbury, who are now joint-managed by Matt Plumb and Paul Dodson, continue their preparations for the new United Counties League Division One campaign on Thursday night when they host St Neots Town.

The game, which will be the first time that the Gary Whitbread Memorial Cup is contested, kicks off at 7.30pm.
