Town midfielder Grant Ward scored the only goal in the Blues 1-0 friendly victory over League Two side Crawley Town as new signing Gwion Edwards made his debut in the second half.
It took just five minutes for the Blues to take the lead via Grant Ward, after Martyn Waghorn made a lovely through ball which was finished off nicely by Ward on the edge of the box.
Edwards joined the action for the start of the second-half and showing a glimpse of what he can do this season in a Town shirt.
Ward’s early strike proved decisive as Town next travel to the Hive to play their fourth pre-season friendly against National League side Barnet this Saturday at 3pm.
