Prims travelled to Eastwood Community for their first game at the Play Soccer USA 3G Arena.
It was Eastwood that started the better of the two sides with Prims trying to get used to the playing surface, Butler and Betteridge were a constant threat down each flank for most of the half but their end product didn’t really test Andy Fretwell in his return to the Prims goal.
However on twenty seven minutes Eastwood took the lead following a cross from Butler, Smith stooped to head home.
Prims then started to get into the game but were restricted to long shots until the thirty fifth minute when Micky Fitzhugh found himself free eight yards out only for Walker in the Eastwood goal to make a fine save.
In first half added time Eastwood made it two, again it was a cross from Butler who found Knight in space in the penalty area to fire past Fretwell.

Prims started the second half more confident with the playing surface and started to create chances Morrow, Dallison, Fitzhugh all having chances to bring Prims back in the game. Prims had a penalty appeal turned down by the referee when it clearly looked like the Eastwood defender contolled the ball with both hands.
As Prims pushed they were getting caught on the break but some good covering by Seale, Ball, Kelly or Hunt restricted the attacks.
In the eighty eighth minute Prims did get reward for their improved second half when Joe Hunt scored from twenty yards. Prims pressed for the equaliser in the final minutes but could not find the goal.
