Diamonds began their post lockdown pre-season campaign with a 4-0 victory against Desborough Town on Saturday afternoon. First-half goals from Liam Dolman and Chris Wreh were added to in the second half by Will Jones and Tom Lorraine
Played at a neutral venue with no spectators allowed the first team squad got a good run out with a number of trialists looking to impress manager Andy Peaks. New signing Richard Walton started in goal along with Patrick Casey, Liam Dolman, Jack Ashton, Nat Gosnal-Tyler, Jesse Akubuine and returning Fernando Bell-Toxtle, and Chris Wreh. Three trialists made up the starting eleven with Will Jones, Tom Lorraine, Ben Ford, Matt Slinn and Joel Gyasi all coming on second half along with a further three trialists.
Liam Dolman opened the scoring for Diamonds in the first half with Chris Wreh slotting a neat finish for the second before half-time. After the 7 changes at half-time and a trialist replacing Jack Ashton youngster Will Jones scored his first for the club to make it three just after a drinks break. Liam Dolman was then replaced by the final trialist before Tom Lorraine added a fourth to complete the scoring.
Next up for Diamonds a trip to old friends Wellingborough Whitworth on 15th August. Again no spectators will be allowed but Radio Diamonds and AFCRDTV are working to be able to attend and provide coverage.
