Wrexham XI 2 v 2 AFC Liverpool

AFC Liverpool continued in their pre-season preparations with a very creditable draw away, to a well organised Wrexham XI.

Although Wrexham fielded a second string and youth mix, it was obvious that our opponents have benefited from being part of a well organised outfit, who ply their trade at a much higher level, and have seen teams like Barcelona and the Welsh National team use their facilities.

The game kicked off ealier than the advertised time due to a concern the lack of floodlights may end the game prematurely.

It was Wrexham who had the best of the opening 10 minutes, which saw them take the lead with an easy tap-in.  AFC Liverpool quickly settled into a rhythm though, and a commanding performance from Phil Stafford in centre midfield, saw us closing down Wrexham, and stopping their passing game.

We were rewarded for all the hard work with a goal from Andy Olsen, who seemed to win everything in the air, to bring the game level at half time.

Second half kicked off early, and continued with some great possession and movement from AFC Liverpool.  Within minutes, Andy McCoy won a free kick just outside the Wrexham area, and a clever pass to Franny Barry, saw the impressive forward flick the ball into the back of the Wrexham net, to see us go 2-1 up.

However, a win was not to be, as Wrexham pushed forward, and a cracking 40 yard strike from just outside the centre circle found the bottom right corner of the net to see the game finish 2-2.

A very impressive result against a polished outfit.
