Pre-season friendly: Bracknell Town 3 Wealdstone 3

Wealdstone begqn their pre-season schedule with a 3-3 draw away to Bracknell Town on Saturday.

Stones made an early return to playing action by taking part in their first game on the final day of June.

However, the Grosvenor Vale side were not sluggish against the Robins and took the lead in the 21st minute through forward Bradley Bubb.

That proved to be the only goal of the opening half and, after both teams made a host of changes at the break, Bracknell pulled level in the 49th minute.

However, Bobby Wilkinson’s men regained their lead in the 67th minute when Jeffrey Monakana netted.

Two minutes later, the sides were level again when the Bostik South Central outfit found the target for a second time.

The Robins then hit the front for the first time in the game with 14 minutes remaining to seemingly consign Wealdstone to a defeat in their opening pre-season friendly.

Monakana, though, had other ideas and netted his second of the game in the 86th minute to ensure it ended level at Larges Lane.

Stones are next in action on July 10 when they make the trip to Marlow.
