Butterworth relishing Athletic test

Great Wakering Rovers v Athletic Newham – Friendly Match – Burroughs Park – Saturday (3pm) – Preview

Steve Butterworth was satisfied with his Great Wakering Rovers’ sides toil against Vanarama National League Southend United during the week and is looking forward to another challenge when Essex Senior League outfit, Athletic Newham visit Burroughs Park on Saturday afternoon.

“We invited Newham over after recently meeting them in the Essex Cup,” the Rovers chief told Yellow Sport.

“I thought it would be a good test for us. We will mix it up and take a look at some of the boys who haven’t had any football yet. We have another game against Dagenham & Redbridge on Tuesday night so everyone will get minutes during the coming days.”
