Burnham 3 – 2 Wealdstone
3 - 2
A mixed Wealdstone side lost 2-3 to Burnham in this hastily arranged extra friendly match on Monday evening at the Gore. The match enabled Stones management to trial some youngsters and look again at some very promising reserve players. Midfielder Ryan Ashe, now returned from his summer break, was also given a valuable run out as was new defender Mark Boyce.
As for the match itself, Burnham scored first just before half time then Stones striker Wayne Reid evened up the score line on 55 minutes. Burnham came back and regained the lead very soon after but Stones restored parity on 65 minutes when Stephen Hughes found the net for 2-2.
Burnham rapped up the scoring with a winner 11 minutes from the end of a match that proved another very useful work out for the Wealdstone squad.
Stones are again in friendly action tonight (Tuesday 5 August) when they are away at Enfield Town, kick off 7.45pm.
