Firsts with Flitwick friendly win
Knebworth enjoyed victory thanks to a last minute volley from Jon Dunne. Raja Tandoori man of the match: Dave Bass.
Knebworth welcomed Bedfordshire County League premier division champions Flitwick Town and faced their sternest test yet of pre-season, despite the visitors missing some players. The Ks dominated the opening ten minutes with Billy Mulley flashing the ball across goal just out of Kieran Klimek's reach in the opening 60 seconds. Klimek saw a shot from the edge of the box held and shortly afterwards Ryan Ellis was unable to guide his header on target from Ross Barker's cross. Flitwick got into their own rhythm and threatened with a shot flying over before Alfie Pettitt showed an outstanding reactions to keep out a deflected shot.
Both sides continued to toil in the second half with Ellis seeing a low drive tipped around the post and Mulley having an effort blocked by the goalkeeper's legs late on. Jon Dunne broke the deadlock in the final moments of the game, receiving Dale Chester's square ball from the right he teed up a volley and sent the ball into the top corner of the net from the edge of the box.
