Rascals fall to strong Newbury & Thatcham side
Rascals look forward to next week
Reading Rascals fell to a strong Newbury & Thatcham side in their last pre-season friendly.
The game started well with Reading taking the lead by a well taken goal from Mark Chapman, a new recruit to Reading along with his son Henry from the West Berkshire club and the signs were looking like Reading may just over turn the previous results between these two sides who met in the MBBO Div 8 last year.
However league form doesn't lie, and the Newbury & Thatcham side who are building for a season of new challenges in MBBO Div 7 this year took charge in the second half and managed to finish 5-1 victors.
The Rascals shouldn't be too disheartened as they will be unlikely to come across as strong a side as this one in the coming weeks and the tough test will have helped their pre-season preparation.
