Friendly vs Clarence Rovers - Result: Won 3-1

Bracknell Manics had no league game this week, but it didn't stop the team from playing. Instead, BMFC travelled to Ancell Park in Fleet to play Clarence Rovers FC in a Friendly. Despite short on players, Bracknell Manics did well to go ahead in the first half through Mark Robertson. Then, just before the break, Robertson got his second goal.

Tony Hemley was on form in this game, winning balls in the midfield and working well alongside Evans in the heart of the pitch. Clarence Rovers pushed on despite two goals down, and earnt themselves some fine chances on goal, but the Rovers strikers struggled to get their shots on target and James Robinson made some fine saves to keep the Manics ahead at half time.

In the Second half, Clarence continued to push, and got a deserved goal after 15 minutes of play. The remainder of the game was well fought, and when reinforcements arrived in the form of Elliott Fairs, it wasn't long before the Manics sealed the victory when Robertson was brought down outside the box. Glenn Evans took the free kick and picked out Robertson's head to earn his hatrick for the day. The final score was 3-1 to the Manics.

Well done to the Manics again on another good result.
