At Stoke City’s Clayton Wood Training Ground, For A Behind-Closed-Doors Friendly

It was a visit to English Championship side, Stoke City, for me today, as The New Saints played their penultimate friendly before the JD Cymru Premier restarts next weekend.

Adrian Cieslewicz put the visitors ahead, as his shot came off the post and into the back of the net.

The Stoke U-23s then drew level, before a header from Ryan Astles found Louis Robles, who nodded home.

A second-half own goal sealed the victory as The New Saints ended up 3-1 winners.
