Two games took place at Goodison on Friday - one kicking off at 2pm and the other starting at 6pm.

Graeme Sharp and Ian Snodin captained the two teams in the opening contest, with Sharpy's side wearing the new blue home strip and Snods eleven wearing the new amber away kit.

Sharpy was actually on the scoresheet in his game - netting at the Gwladys Street during his team's 3-1 victory.

"I was determined to score in the Street End again," smiled Sharpy.

"Although the stadium was empty, it was still a fantastic feeling. I'll be suffering in the morning, but it will have been worth it.
