Blooms makes comeback in friendly win

13 August 2013

Matt Bloomfield made his long-awaited comeback in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Maidenhead United on Tuesday evening.

Wanderers: Horlock, Arnold, Hause, Fletcher, Doherty, Kewley-Graham (Trialist 70), Bloomfield (Trialist 45), Kretzschmar, Morias, Angol, McClure.

Reading loanee Nick Arnold completed a fine move and the scoring with three minutes left on the clock, curling an effort in the bottom right-hand corner from 15 yards.

It was 4-0 midway through the second half when Tommy Fletcher’s cross was deflected into the visitors’ net by a Maidenhead defender.

His bullet header followed a brace from Lee Angol, who coolly slotted under the keeper on 40 minutes before firing home from 12 yards at the second attempt shortly after the re-start.

The latter scored one of five goals for the Wanderers in a comfortable 5-0 victory at the club’s training ground.

There was more good news for Gareth Ainsworth, who saw Gary Doherty and Matt McClure get 90 minutes under their belts.

The all-action midfielder played a half on his first outing since being diagnosed with pelvic shear last August.
