Friendly: Folkestone Invicta 2 Hornchurch 2 (4-3 pens)

Urchins were edged out on the Kent coast as Folkestone claimed the Sid Burvill Trophy following a penalty shoot-out.

Jimmy McFarlane’s men let a late lead slip and were made to pay the price as Junior Dadson and Omar Beckles then missed from the spot.

The visitors began well, with Junior Luke and Martin Tuohy denied by a fine double save on five minutes.

Tuohy headed just over and fired another effort straight at the keeper, before heading Luke’s cross wide midway through the first half.

Folkestone came into the game more after that, but Urchins took the lead five minutes before the break when Dadson made ground on the left and crossed for Tobi Joseph to slide the ball home.

McFarlane made a trio of changes around the hour mark and Folkestone drew level on 68 minutes following a goalmouth scramble.

Elliot Styles headed wide from a free-kick soon after, before making way for Frank Griffin.

And the visitors regained the lead on 74 minutes when a superb crossfield ball from Frankie Curley found Jamie Hursit, whose cross was headed home by Aaron Beckles.

Urchins could not hold on, though, and Folkestone squared matters for a second time with seven minutes remaining before Dadson hit the bar and Beckles blazed over in the shoot-out.

Frenford 1 Romford 1

Boro had to settle for a draw in their final outing of pre-season against Olympian League Frenford.

Chances were at a premium in a hard-fought first half, but Tom Richardson volleyed against the crossbar for the visitors on 32 minutes.

Jack Barry went close with a header, with Richardson also narrowly off target before the break.

But Boro broke the deadlock six minutes into the second half when Abs Seymour was fouled in the box and Paul Clayton converted from the spot.

Frenford countered to level just past the hour, but Boro were awarded a second penalty soon after when Clayton was pulled down in the box.

The club’s record appearance holder picked himself up but saw his penalty saved, before volleying the rebound over.

Boro had chances to win it late on, but Matt Toms headed against the woodwork and Jamie Dicks saw his drive cleared off the line.
