Basingstoke Town 2 Woking 1
Pre-Season Friendly
14 July 2007

The Cards lost 2-1 at The Camrose yesterday afternoon in their first pre-season friendly.

Woking, lining up in a 3-4-1-2 formation, got off to a fine start when Marvin Morgan shot into the top corner with only eight minutes on the clock. But the Dragons were level only a couple of minutes later when Scott Fitzpatrick fired home. Shortly before half-time they added a second when Sean Hankin headed home from a corner.

Frank Gray gave a run-out to all his new signings and there were substitute appearances in the second half from four Academy graduates: Giuseppe Sole, Matt Ruby, David Shin and Jerome Maledon.

Michael Charles had a goal disallowed and was denied a penalty in the second half.

Jay Gasson (pictured) sustained an ankle injury but it is not thought to be serious.

Frank Gray is quoted in the Non-League Paper as saying after the game: ?It was a good workout and a good fitness session. It was about getting our fitness levels up and working on our shape. It?s a question of who can fit in where and people playing in different positions ? that?s what these games are all about.?

The Cards? next pre-season friendly game is on Tuesday night when they travel to Maidenhead United.

Team: Nick Gindre; Paul Lorraine, Tom Hutchinson, Jay Gasson (Matt Ruby, 55); Matt Gray (David Shin, 80), Matt Pattison (Goma Lambu, 45), Bradley Quamina (Jerome Maledon, 70), Danny Bunce (Adam Green, 45); Liam Marum (Giuseppe Sole, 45), Marvin Morgan, Michael Charles.
