VANDALISM to the goalmouths at Scraley Road this summer has regrettably forced the cancellation of pre-season friendlies with Barnet and Chelmsford City.
FIVE of Heybridge’s summer signings are due to get a run out in tomorrow’s (July 8) pre-season opener at Basildon United.
Keeper Darren Behcet, defender Ryan Henshaw and midfielder Harrison Chatting are all set to start against the Essex Senior League side, and strikers Luke Callander and Joshua Fagbohun are also likely to get some game time.
HEYBRIDGE chairman Gary White says the club will now consider its options after the disappointing decision by Maldon District Council to reject Swifts’ plans for a new ground.
JODY BROWN says it is important to remain realistic about Heybridge’s targets next season – despite the arrival of some top new players this summer.
Return of Callander and Bantick heads up summer business
LUKE CALLANDER’S popular return to Scraley Road is the highlight of some decent business in the transfer market for Heybridge so far this summer.
HEYBRIDGE will kick-off their pre-season home games with a visit from League Two Barnet.
The Bees will visit the Texo Stadium on Saturday, July 15, for a 7.30pm kick-off.
