Eastbourne Rangers made the trip to Huggetts Lane to face Willingdon Reserves with the entertaining 3-3 draw the two sides played out last year in preseason still relatively fresh in everyone's minds. Rangers made the trip without injured duo Jules Waters and Chris Ward while skipper and vice skipper Dave Bennett-Tomlin and Dan Harmer were on holiday and at The Kia Oval for the cricket, respectively.
Rangers were also missing Josh Kyte through work commitments so rangers settled with taking a squad of 13 to the game. Keeper Martin Bell was looking to secure his third clean sheet of preseason and tasked to help him with this cause was Ricky Curran, Mike Pickard, Tom Tribe and Dan Chapman who made up the rangers back four.
Glen Noble and Connor Sullivan added pace to the rangers wings while stand in skipper Lee Chapman was partnered with Rob Anderson in centre midfield. Luke Davies had an extremely late wake up call to make it to the game just in the nick of time and he was paired with hitman Ben Jesson up front. This left Conor Middleton and Mark Hymans on the bench.
