Defeat To Kelvedon Hatch
Barkingside fell to a 3-2 friendly defeat against a talented Kelvedon Hatch side on Tuesday night.
Keledon Hatch's side included many past Essex Senior League players, such as former Barking FC Managers', Glen Golby and Steve Willis.
Despite 'Side going into an early lead from the penalty spot through a Aaron Hunwicks spot-kick, we then went behind through two quick goals from Kelvedon, both as a result of defensive errors, or a lack of organisation.
Shomari Barnwell then levelled the scores with a superb finish, before our third defensive mistake of the game combined with an excellent finish from the Kelvedon player, resulted in a 3-2 reverse.
There's plenty of work to do for 'Side before the season starts, but plenty of positives from the new group of young players that have assembled.
