Nicke nicks it from the U's

Sporting their new away kit, the Beavers came from behind to beat last season's National League South champions Sutton Utd by 2 goals to one.

After a first half hour devoid of any real incident, the Beavers were the first to actually threaten as the returning Brendan Kiernan's attempt curled round the post.

Sutton also started to show what they were capable of as Jamie Collins planted a header on goal, but keeper Billy Bishop was equal to it and tipped the ball over the bar.

Just before the break, Christian Jolley had to hoof clear a goalward header from just in front of Bishop but the Beavers defensive line stayed strong and the teams went in goalless.

Both teams were slow to get into their rhythm after the break and it wasn't until the 53rd minute that Bishop had to make a smart save down by his left hand post.

However, the Beavers defensive strength was finally cracked as Maxime Biamou's glancing header on the hour beat keeper Billy Bishop into the far corner of the net to give Sutton the lead.

The lead only lasted for 5 minutes as Manny Williams managed to break through in the box, to take the ball round the keeper to tap home from close range.

The usual massed changes common to most friendlies broke up the play somewhat but on 84 minutes, a powerful Shaun Cooper drive for the visitors forced Bishop to have to react quickly to punch the ball clear and the Beavers knew they couldn't relax, friendly though the game was billed as.

A draw looked to be on the cards but with virtually the last action of the match, Nicke Kabamba chased down a long Tom Jelley pass. He just beat keeper Worner to the ball, and with that touch was able to follow the ball and dribble it into the unguarded net.

Next up for the Beavers is an interesting match against Dulwich Hamlet this coming Saturday afternoon.
