Takeley continued their Essex Senior League pre-season campaign with a 2-1 defeat to Ryman League Division One North side Witham Town on Tuesday night.
It was an improved performance from Saturday’s 2-0 loss to Thurlow Nunn Premier Division outfit Saffron Walden which ended in the same result. Gavin Cockman netted for Takeley.
The two losses were against sides above Takeley in the non league pyramid so the tests will stand them in good stead for the season ahead.
Manager Duncan Easley said: “The players came back with a reasonable level of fitness, we have worked them hard and they have come on in pre-season individually and as a unit.
“We had a couple of easier games to start with and then two with stronger sides above us to measure how we compare to them as of course we’d like to push on.”

Takeley begin their Essex Senior League campaign on Saturday, August 8 at home to Tower Hamlets.
