Mursley United have take a big step towards bringing their club even closer together what a successful open day.

With senior players coming together with their junior counterparts, the group trained together, under the watchful eye of former player Jakub Kasprzyk.

And the event finished with a penalty shoot-out for the juniors to test their wits against the senior goalkeepers.

Chairman Bob Dixon was delighted with the event, and hopes all the teams under the Mursley United banner will continue to grow togther.

He said: “We have excellent facilities (for miles around) including a “F” grade pavilion and if all five teams integrate the club becomes stronger and better resourced in terms of personnel and finances.

“This team strength will help to achieve the club’s progressive objectives for our five year plan and also sustain the club’s future.”

Mursley’s preparation for the forthcoming Spartan Midlands Division Two season took a blow last Wednesday night, as they went down 2-1 to a young Ampthill Town side.

The first half was even, the with best chances falling to Ben Brill and Sam Folland who were both denied at point-blank range by the visitors’ keeper.

Dominating play in the second half, Mursley could not find the net and Ampthill scored two goals before James Wardell, returning to the club for a third spell, netted a consolation goal late on.
