Despite a very wet evening at the Arena, Brentwood’s second pre-season friendly produced an extremely entertaining game against Eastern Counties League side Saffron Walden.
The home side raced into a two-goal lead in the first sixteen minutes with two excellently finished goals by Alfie Hilton and Adam Allan. Former Brentwood forward Charlie Portway soon reduced the arrears but Jack Gardner made it 3-1 in the 22nd minute with a low shot from 20 yards into the corner.
Two minutes into the second half, it was 4-1 to Brentwood when Luke Stanley converted a penalty kick. Portway scored his second on the hour and he could have completed a hat-trick but his penalty kick was saved by Anthony Page.
Brentwood Town squad: Wayne Baker, Sam Gordon, Luke Foster, Brendan Cavalier, Mitchell McCabe, Matt Hall, Adam Allan, Alfie Hilton, Jack Gardner, Tony Jacobs, Jordan Sarabrouche, Anthony Page, Jack Molkalski, Louis Brown, James Bex, Connor Martin, Jack Suters, Warren Thomas, Ollie Bell, Theo Jones, Luke Stanley, James McLean.
