The first team finished their pre season programme with a satisfying 4-1 win over a youthful Sheffield Wednesday side.

Chris Hilton would have been disappointed to see his side concede from a corner early in the first half , and they didn't really get to grips with the midfield movement of their professional counterparts in the first half, however whatever he said at half time had an impact.

Stocksbridge came out in the second half and pressed their opponents much better and soon levelled things up with a Luke Mangham goal.

Enjoying much more of the possession they took the lead when Aaron Moxom scored his first goal for the club after some excellent work down the left from Tyler Williams.

Brad Beatson put the result beyond doubt with a good header from a corner, sixteen year old Lewis Whitham was introduced from the bench to join other under eighteen products Jordan Greaves and Ben Rhodes on the pitch added the icing to the cake with a well taken finish inside the box to continue his impressive pre season.

Chris will use the next couple of weeks to fine tune his squad ready for the first game of the season on Saturday 18th August v Stamford FC at the Look Local Stadium 3pm kick off.
