Whittlesford Warriors U15s 0 Ely City U15s 3

ELY City started their pre-season with a friendly against an in form Whittlesford side.

City gained promotion to Division A for the coming season and, with new management, hope to play some exciting football at a very high level.

On a wet Sunday afternoon City started well and new signing Ed Dickinson got their first, with the help of a defensive error, and, from then on, they never looked like

losing the game. New captain Sean Flack lead by example and dominated the centre of the park.

Ely's second and third goals were created by Sam Ashman with some fine runs down the right of the pitch, crossing to the reliable and very quick Ryan Lane.

The newly formed back four played some fine football and never really looked like letting Whittlesford through.

It was a pleasing result and prepares them for a tough but exciting season ahead.

SQUAD: Jodie Holden, Callum Falconer, Aidan Hutton, Danny Drewery, Nathan Feetham, Sean Flack, Luke Coe, Sam Ashman, Ryan Lane, Ben Amery, Ed Dickinson and Harry Nolan.

* Are you looking to play a better standard of football in the A league? Would you be interested in playing in a well organised team under new management? Contact Alan Falconer on 01353 648121 or 07711278507. Training is on a Wednesday night from 6pm-7.30pm at the Unwin ground in Ely.
