Fleet pair scale international heights v Nepal

Ben Chapman and Toby Edser gained England C caps this Bank Holiday Monday as both players started the friendly international v Nepal at Aldershot Town’s EBB Stadium.

Barnet pair Nicke Kabamba and Callum Stead fired two early goals for Paul Fairclough’s England before No.8 Edser might have added a third when his excellent shot was tipped over the bar on his former home ground – and a venue he scored at earlier this season.

A crowd of 5,560, many of those from among Aldershot’s Nepalese community, watched the game as Edser earned 90 minutes while Chapman – wearing the No.2 shirt – played the first hour. Former Fleet trio Nathan Ashmore, Jack Payne and Johnny Goddard also featured.

England: 1 Nathan Ashmore (GK) (Boreham Wood), 2 Ben Chapman (Ebbsfleet United), 3 Ollie Harfield (Aldershot Town), 4 Danny Collinge (Barnet), 5 Dan Ellison (Chippenham Town), 6 Ollie Kensdale (Southend United), 7 Jack Payne (Boreham Wood), 8 Toby Edser (Ebbsfleet United), 9 Nicke Kabamba (Barnet), 10 Callum Stead (Barnet) 11 Johnny Goddard (Slough Town)

Substitutes: 13 Elliot Justham (Dagenham & Redbridge) for Ashmore 45’, 16 Tyler Frost (Aldershot Town) for Goddard 58’, 15 Scott (Aldershot Town) for Chapman 58’, 12 Jack Barham (Aldershot Town) for Ellison 58’, 14 Zico Asare (Maidenhead United) for Stead 58’
