Clarence and Zebras victors in friendlies

Clarence United beat Taroona 1-0 with a late goal by Ben Hamlett at Rokeby High School today in a pre-season friendly refereed by Dirk Gadd.

In the Reserves, refereed by John Meehan, Clarence ran out 8-1 winners.

“We were happy to have a hit-out,” said Clarence United coach, Andrew Brown.

“We did the same thing last year with Taroona. A great club and lovely people.

“Conditions weren’t the best, but both sides tried to play football, which was good.

“It was a really good chance to have a look at some of the fringe players.

“We had quite a few out, so it was great to give people an extended run.

“We thought it was beneficial anyway, and we were lucky enough to get Dirk Gadd to referee and he did a really good job.

“I don’t know how many players Taroona will get back in, but it’s only pre-season.”

In another friendly, Tilford Zebras beat Hobart United 8-1 at Sandown Park in a match refereed by Sean Collins.

Josh Thorpe hit a hat-trick for the Zebras, who conceded a soft goal to the Division One outfit.

good game today played in good spirit between zebras and united. great mix of youth and senior players for zebras with the attackers causing alot of trouble due to young and fast players with josh thorpe organising. young midfield where all players were about 18. solid defence across the four with very attacking full backs and two strong centre halves all the way back to the goalies in kaden and voss taking control. things looking good for 2010 with a few more players to come in!
