Aldershot News & Mail - - FOOTBALL -

FLEET TOWN’S un­beaten pre-sea­son record came to an end af­ter they were hum­bled by a strong Basingstoke Town line-up on Tues­day night.

For­mer Hart­ley Wint­ney striker Sam Ar­gent net­ted twice as the Drag­ons en­sured that Craig Stan­ley’s late strike was mere con­so­la­tion.

Tues­day’s de­feat at Calthorpe Park came af­ter Fleet reg­is­tered their fifth straight draw of the pre-sea­son cam­paign with an en­ter­tain­ing 3-3 stale­mate against South­ern League Cen­tral side Hanwell Town on Satur­day.

Two goals just be­fore half­time by Jack White put the Blues ahead, only for the vis­i­tors to turn the ta­bles and take a 3-2 lead.

But once again Craig Davis’ men found a way back and equalised late on courtesy of a fine run into the box by skip­per Ben White.

Fleet play their last friendly on Satur­day when they en­ter­tain Ryman Pre­mier Hamp­ton & Rich­mond, (ko 3pm).
