Cityzens win final pre-season encounter

Simon Johnson's City beat Tadley Calleva 2-0 at Rivers in the final warm-up game before the new season begins.

Goals in the second half from Kai Stubbs and Alfie Grant put daylight between the two sides in a dominant display.

The game kicked off in fast and furious fashion, with a scrappy first half.

The second half was much more one-sided, with the hosts getting the ball down and controlling most of the half.

The break-through came just seven minutes into the half as Kai managed to turn the ball home after it bounced around in the box.

The team continued to press for the second and got it with just 12 minutes remaining as Alfie headed the ball towards goal and saw it nestle in the net, with the assistance of the defender on the line.

A good win and a professional performance throughout, attention must now turn to the return of competitive action.

The side travel to Hamble on Tuesday in the FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round.
