VILLAGE side Codicote gave a good account of themselves when they claimed a 2-2 draw with Stotfold on Saturday.
For Codicote boss Jim Bundy and Ickleford manager Glen Clark and coach Rob Kleiser it was their first chance to see their squads in action.
The opening period was goalless although Codicote were always strong in defence with Ross Ward, Tony Wells and Grant McAree outstanding.
After the break Bundy made several changes and brought on new signings Aaron Springham, Kris McMahon, Ross Randall, Michael Pearson and Michael Taylor.
Codicote took the lead when McMahon struck a superb 25-yeard free kick that curled inside the right hand post giving the Stotfold keeper no chance.
A mix up in front of goal enabled Stotfold to equalise.
- 1 Man wanted in connection with police officer assault could be in Hitchin
- 2 Plans to demolish riding stables to make way for housing
- 3 'Jobs will be lost' if Stevenage TK Maxx fails to relocate
- 4 Stevenage woman arrested following 'dangerous driving and assault'
- 5 VOTE: Which is your favourite chip shop in all of Hertfordshire?

But Codicote fought back and a superb run from McMahon ended with Pearson prodding the ball into the net to restore their lead.
Stotfold claimed a late equaliser from a penalty after Taylor was adjudged to have pushed a Stotfold player in the area.
