Ahead of our title showdown with Accretia at the weekend, Athletic’s reserves had a morale boosting 3-0 win in their friendly match with Riff Raff fc at New Home Park this morning.

First half goals from Dario Zintu, Daniel Hasnaş and Liran Tzur were enough to secure the victory in the match which was much more even than the scoreline suggests.

Arjen said, “We took all of our chances while we kept things tight at the back. Although the match was close, we showed our ruthless streak and got the win.” He added, “The players knew places in Saturday’s squad were up for grabs, and they rose to the challenge”.

He finished off by saying, “Now we can concentrate on our preparations for Saturday’s match, and although I have not finalised my line-up, I am now fairly certain of what it will be”.
