Airbus UK Broughton 1-2 Northwich Victoria (July 29th)

A stiff test for the blues in a not-so-friendly friendly against Blue Square North Vics, relegated from the Non-League's top tier only last season and featuring old boy Mark Cadwallader.

An action-packed game with a fair bit of niggle as both sides got stuck in from the start. Airbus took an early lead after Phil Palethorpe had made a great one-on-one stop, Carl Owen heading a Cooky cross home off the post.

Matty Woodward then gave away a penalty for the equaliser. They were lucky not to give another one away just after as Paley upended another attacker with a trade mark rash challenge.

They were caught out just before half time, though, an attack down their right found them wanting for speed & the resultant low cross wasn't cut out, leading to a simple tap in.

That was it for the scoring but Airbus looked composed and organised, not overawed by Vics' air of superiority; it was a shame their patience & hard work wasn't rewarded with a deserved equaliser but everyone seemed pretty pleased with things afterwards.
