Mossley played a hastily arranged friendly against Abbey Hey at Cedar Mount Academy on Thursday night nd ran out comfortable 5-1 winners.
There were first half goals scored by Dougie Carroll with a delicate 20 yard angled chip shot, Steve Foster with a close range overhead volley and a neat finish by trialist Tom Murray. Carroll and Foster in particular went close on several other occasions. At the other end an Abbey hey free kick hit the post before Liam Higginbotham scooped the ball to safety.
The second half saw Mossley again comfortably in control and Brian Matthews extended the lead with a neat finish before Derryn Ofori, who played briefly for Mossley last season scored a consolation for Abbey Hey. Trialist Jaya Cawthorne pounced to fire home the fifth after the Abbey keeper had parried a right wing Danny McDonnell cross.
