SALISBURY brought the curtain down on their pre-season campaign with victory over National South side Hungerford Town at the RayMac.

Goals from latest signing Ryan Penny and midfielder Charlie Davis gave the Whites a 2-1 win over their higher league opponents.

Steve Claridge’s side made a flying start to the encounter, with Penny grabbing a goal practically straight from kick-off.

Their lead did not last long, with the Berkshire side equalising on the ten minute mark, when winger Ben Allen popped up to calmly finish and restore parity.

The away side almost scored again nine minutes later, when Allen saw his effort clang off both goal posts before being cleared by the Sarum defence.

Penny, who was unveiled as a Salisbury player after impressing on trial, was forced off in the first-half after a head collision.

Fortunately for the Whites and the former England Schoolboy, he was given the all clear following checks at the hospital.

An even contest throughout, Hungerford hit the woodwork again early on in the second half.

Once more it was Allen who was thwarted by the frame of the goal, with his free-kick cannoning back off the crossbar.

With 20 minutes to go it would be Salisbury that would claim the win.

Brandon Goodship saw his penalty saved by Mark Scott in the Hungerford goal, but the shot stopper could not prevent Davis from converting the rebound.

Salisbury will hope to take momentum into their first game of the Southern League Premier South season at the weekend.

The Whites host Beaconsfield Town at the RayMac on Saturday, August 6 (kick-off 3pm).
