Wealdstone defeated League 2 side Dagenham & Redbridge 2-1 in their first home friendly last night.

Gordon Bartlett’s side fell behind after just four minutes when striker Ashley Chambers found the net.

But the Stones grabbed an equaliser within seven minutes from a superb free-kick by Luke Pigden.

Man-of-the-match Joe Turner set up the winning goal in the 56th minute when he played the ball to Michael Malcolm and he fired past the visiting keeper.

Wealdstone substitute keeper Warren Carter prevented a late equaliser with an excellent late save.

The Stones’ one setback was a shin injury picked up by sub Johnny Wright.

Wealdstone travel to Harrow Borough for a friendly on Saturday before hosting a Watford XI on Wednesday night.
