Swindon Supermarine striker David Pratt was pleased with his side’s performance against League One neighbours Swindon Town.
Town, who earlier in the day saw Clem Morfuni finally complete his takeover of the club, secured a 3-2 win with Pratt scoring one of Marine’s goals.
The former Chippenham striker was delighted to get on the scoresheet and is hopeful that Supermarine will enjoy a successful season ahead.
“It was a good team performance,” said Pratt. “It was always going to be tough but against League opposition to lose 3-2 isn’t a bad result.
“If we can just get the season going, hopefully it will be a good one. I’m coming to the end of my career so hopefully I can finish on a high.
“People have to fight for their place here and it keeps everyone on their toes.”
Harry Parsons gave Town the lead in this pre-season friendly on just six minutes before Pratt had an instant reply ruled out for offside.
Harry McKirdy doubled the visitors’ lead on 23 minutes before adding a second on 42 minutes.
Pratt’s fortunes failed to change in the second half when he rounded the keeper only to fire wide as Supermarine searched for a goal.
Then Henry Spalding found the breakthrough when he volleyed home clinically from outside the box.
And Pratt finally got the goal his performance deserved when he tapped home a Spalding cross with one minute remaining.
