3 RSME 2 Fleet Town 2

On a light and breezy evening Fleet travelled to Gibraltar Barracks to play 3 RSME, Army Champion Leagues winners in 2018 and 2019 in a pre-season friendly. The game was competitive throughout, with Fleet playing a strong team in the first half taking a 2-0 lead with goals from Kaine McAuley and Taylor Watts and playing some good football. 3 RSME were also in the game having a number of chances and Fleet’s goalkeeper making a number of good saves.

In the 2nd half Fleet made many changes and rolling substitutes were used as the half progressed, with a number of trialists used by Fleet, the game changed and the hosts pulled a goal back from the penalty spot and then equalised with a good header direct from a corner. As the game progressed both teams made chances but no further goals were scored.

Thank you to our hosts for their hospitality and hosting the game at short notice, good luck for the season ahead.
