AFC Croydon 1-2 Saltdean United
Pre-season friendly – 8th August 2020
Match report – AFC Croydon
A swelteringly hot day but it didn’t deter either AFC Croydon Athletic or Saltdean United playing out an entertaining friendly as they both prepare for the new season. Played without spectators and observing new guidelines to help keep everyone safe the game gave plenty for Kevin Rayner and his management team to think about as they continue their preparations.
Saltdean took the lead in the first half but the Rams came back and equalised with a goal from 17-year-old Chris Alashan from the penalty spot. With the scores level Emiliano Lika would hit the bar in the second half but Saltdean had the final say with a late winner.
Rayner’s team have games with Epsom & Ewell and Westside coming up in the next week as the preparations continue.
Rams Squad: Piotr Jacucha, Kazzeem Richards, Ibrahim Kallon, Hermes Mengi, Michael Kayon, Jack Clarke, Jack Marney, Nahum Green, Luwayne Greenwood, Harvey Walker, Chris Knuckles, Chris Alashan, Emiliano Lika, Kevin O’Conner and Nathan Ashburn.
