Glen Golby and Justin Gardner’s team stepped up their preparations for the new campaign
Barking started their pre-season with a 4-0 win over Corinthians at the weekend, as they step up their plans for the new Isthmian North campaign.
Alan Smalls, Toib Adeyemi, Taylor Tombides and Arian Retkoceri netted for the Blues in the comfortable success.
Tombides and Retkoceri were officially announced as summer signings after the victory, as Glen Golby and Justin Gardner continue to add to their squad.
Barking also discovered on Friday they would face Kirkley & Pakefield or Saffron Walden Town in the preliminary round of the FA Cup on Saturday August 19 at Mayesbrook Park.
Blues will appear in the FA Trophy for the first time since the 2005/06 season as well and have been drawn away to Chipstead in the preliminary round with the tie taking place on October 7.
Jay Leader won’t play his part in either of those competitions, however, after leaving Barking to re-sign for Cray Wanderers.
