Lions 1st team squad kicked off the 2016/17 preparations with some promising results in their opening friendlies.
Having been in training since the start of July, Lions opened up with a confidence-boosting 5-3 win against South Midlands Premier League opponents Harpenden Town. James Gershfield showed his early form with four goals and Charlie Kasler capped an impressive display.
Lions then took on Hertford Town, from the same division, and drew 4-4 despite going behind twice with two goal margins; both times Lions scoring two to level at 2-2 and four apiece.
Gershfield (2) and Kasler were again on the scoresheet, with Lions fourth coming from Austin Lipman.
Further friendlies include games against Springfield and also Ryman League North side Brentwood Town.
