New Town Eagles beat Launceston City 2-1 in a friendly at Sandown Park today.

The match conisted of three 30-minute periods and Eagles 'loaned' City three players as the northerners only had 11 players.

Jacob Kavanagh and Adam McKeown scored for Eagles.

City's scorer was one of the Eagles loan players, who played for the club's under-19s last season.

"I was happy with the result," said Eagles coach, George Krambousanos.

"We had twenty players and I gave everyone a run and we gave City three reserve players because they were short.

"We had six first-team players out because they were unavailable or injured.

"But, it was a good run and I'm pleased."

Ivan Jozeljic was the referee.

Incidentally, the draw for the southern Summer Cup will be made at FFT headquarters on Monday at 10am.
