East Cowes Sports FC Res v Sandown FC Res, pre-season friendly, Sat 15 Aug 2020 - match report

A double dose of preseason friendlies for Sandown FC, saw the reserves kicking off at 3 pm

Sandown started the game well, putting out a strong side, with a few changes to give other players some valuable game time. Giving these players game time added to the diversity of skill mix on the pitch.

With goals from Porter (1) and Monty (1) and Bleach (1) bagging a penalty after an error by ECS. Despite this, East Cowes Sports FC found gaps in passes and seized every opportunity to make it an end result of 4-3 to East Cowes.
