AFC Telford United continued to build pre-season momentum as they ran out 4-0 winners at Market Drayton Town.

James McQuilkin, Daniel Udoh, Ellis Deeney and Adam Dawson got the goals.

It was the second game, and second victory, of pre-season for Gavin Cowan's side after beating Ellesmere Rangers 6-0 on Saturday.

The Bucks starting line-up included two trialists - one of them being left-back Tyler Lyttle, who ended last season at Sutton Coldfield Town and is the son of ex-Nottingham Forest star Des Lyttle.

McQuilkin opened the scoring with a cool side-footed finish from close range and Udoh doubled their advantage before half-time in similar style.

Deeney, one of several fresh faces for the second period, was on the mark with a sweet left-footed strike from 20 yards, before Dawson showed some fancy footwork to complete the scoring.

Drayton worked hard but failed to come up with any meaningful efforts on goal.

Winger Joe Cuff and goalkeeper Jono Brown were among the other Telford trialists to get some game time. Jack Rea and Matthew Barnes-Homer, who both started last season with the club, also featured.


Telford first half XI (4-4-2): Martinez; A Trialist, Smith, Sutton, Lyttle; Cowans, Royle, McQuilkin, Knights (Cuff, 33); Udoh, A Brown

Telford second half XI: Martinez (J Brown, 61); Streete, B Trialist, White, Lyttle (C Trialist, 61); Dawson, Deeney, Rea, Cuff; Udoh (Morgan-Smith, 61), Barnes-Homer
