Changes a boost to Butterworth and Rovers

Great Wakering Rovers 2-1 Athletic Newham

Steve Butterworth focused on the positives after witnessing his Great Wakering Rovers side overcome Essex Senior League outfit, Athletic Newham in a hard-fought pre-season encounter at a humid Burroughs Park.

Mitch Gilbey and Adam Vyse netted for the Rovers, while Joshua Owootomo responded for the competitive East London outfit.

“It was a typical pre-season friendly,” Butterworth told Yellow Sport.

“We had to make four changes just after half-time to get some energy into the game and it worked with two goals.

“It’s another win though – we move on to Tuesday.”

Great Wakering Rovers take on Vanarama National League Dagenham & Redbridge at Burroughs Park on Tuesday, July 27 (7:45pm).
