The Rivermoor Stadium was the venue for yet another pre-season friendly for Ian Bates` men, as they looked to secure a third victory.

Highmoor-Ibis FC who play in The Hellenic Premier Division were to prove to be The Lions` toughest test of the campaign.

Highmoor got off to a great start with a goal on the 15th minute mark after an even opening encounter, however their lead soon doubled midway through the first half.

The Lions pulled one back before the half time interval.

Half time came and went, and both sides battled hard in search of supremacy, but it was Highmoor who regained their two goal lead in the latter stages of the second half.

Three soon became four, as the game finished with Highmoor grabbing the spoils.
