Victory for Men's 2

Start the season with an away win

After the postponement of Reading’s 2nd XI opening fixture, this week they began their campaign away to Bromley and Beckenham, a side known for their size and physicality.

It was not long into the game before Chris Powell’s tactics showed their worth with the younger members of side using their pace to penetrate the Bromley defence. The first goal came when Park crossed the ball to the back post for Howells to calmly put the ball into the back of the net. It did not take long for the Parkes and Park duo to link up well for the second, again leaving the keeper stranded for a tap in.

As the game went on the speed and agility of the Reading side started to take effect with more goals coming in quick succession from Powell, Culmer, Wegner and Ben.

Heading into the second half, the Park and Parkes duo were at it again with Parkes rounding the keeper for Park to put it into an open goal. Unfortunately this time, the 6th goal was not meant to be as a slight miss trap letting Brom & Bec off the hook.
The score line finished 6-1 after a complete and well-rounded performance from the Reading side. Albeit it early in the season, the clinical performance shown in this opening fixture shows that Powelly’s men are capable of going for the title and there will be exciting times ahead.
