Stoneywood Parkvale 2-2 Newmachar Utd
Newmachar had Callum Macdonald (knee), Chris Hardie (achillies) and Greg Wood (knee) missing through injury while Murray Dawson was away with work.
Dylan Forsyth and Callum Stewart came back into the squad for the second friendly against Stoneywood Parkvale. Newmachar played up the hill and into the wind in the first half and took the lead through a Dylan Forsyth penalty, sending the keeper the wrong way after he was bundled over trying to get on the end of a wicked Callum Saunders cross.
The hosts were soon level after a mix up inside the 18 yard box saw the Vale striker nip in front of Stevo Young, who clipped his ankles while trying to recover. The referee pointed to the spot and it was 1-1.
8 changes at half time saw Newmachar take 10 minutes to get up to speed with the game. Into the last 10 minutes of the game, a cross from the Vale right was headed home to give Vale the lead but nearly instantly, a wonder through ball was chipped over the Vale keeper by James McMahon to level.
A very good Newmachar performance in blustery conditions and another game under the belt in preparation for the coming season.
Next week we visit Sunnybank FC.
