Wakehurst entered their final pre-season fixture looking for a good, solid performance against a team who last season were playing in the Premier Division of the Amateur League. 
 
On a tight pitch, Wakehurst started their normal quick passing game switching from one side to the other and Nixon and McCartney were causing all sorts of trouble down the left hand side. 
 
Right back Andy Millar received the ball on the right wing, drove forward and delivered an inch perfect cross for Gregg to cooly beat his man and slip it past the keeper on the 26th minute to give Wakehurst a 1-0 lead. 
 
The visitors were now creating numerous opportunities and on the 38th minute, seven consecutive passes ended with McCartney whipping a first time cross in for Weir to head it off the crossbar before Barn levelled on the 43rd minute after poor marking from a corner to make it 1-1.
 
The second half was dominated by Wakehurst and they thought they had the winner when Nixon beat his man and crossed it to the back post where Price hammered home and to everyone’s amazement, the ref ruled it out for offside. 
 
Another solid performance by all to take us into next week’s first league match against Sofia Farmer.
 
Starting Team: Andy Findlay, Andy Millar, Conor Ross, Niall Swann, Kurtis McCartney, Aaran Weir, Andy Laughlin, Ryan Bamber (C), Stewart Nixon, Conor Gregg, Zach Barr.
