Berko gave Ryman Premier side Wingate & Finchley a good run for their money in the friendly on Tuesday night. The Comrades opened the scoring through Josh Chamberlain in the 20th minute, when he got on the end of a cross and netted with a shot past Bobby Smith in the visitor’s goal. Five minutes later Berko might have doubled their lead when Smith was beaten again by James Towell shot but the ball rebounded to safety after hitting the post. Berko played good passing football particularly in the first half with Connor Calcutt missing a golden chance to score with most of the goal to aim at. The visitors are from two divisions higher than Berko and fought back into the game with a well worked goal that was finished off by Leon Smith. Just before the interval Smith got the winning goal with a bicycle kick with his back to goal, to net his second of the match.

There were no goals in the second half which was surprising considering the number of substitutions made but both teams kept their shape. Calcutt and Ashley Morrissey, who had come on for the injured Chamberlain went closest for Berko.


Tasker; Griggs, Rodrigoe,Hardy, Gavin, Hawes, Chamberlain, Frederick, Calcutt, Towell,Jowle. Substitutes Broome , Canham, Sears, Morrissey and Thompson.
