Casey’s turned in a much-improved performance but still went down 2-1 to The Bell from Rugby in division one of the Rugby and District Sunday League.
A late second half goal sealed it for the visitors.
This after a hard-fought first half when Chris Trills equalised with a superb headed goal for Casey’s from a pin-point free kick from Stuart Clarke.
New signing Shaun Southeran and Kevin Eales had impressive performance along with Tom Consentino in Casey’s defence.
The Bell, boosted with several ex-Quigley players, were pushed all the way.
Casey’s face newcomers London Calling in Rugby on Sunday.
Casey’s Reserves were also beaten, going down 5-2 to Athletico Belbao Rugby.
Casey’s unbeaten run ended after a disappointing first half when they conceded three goals without reply.
However they regained some composure with a much-improved second half performance with goals from Alex OConnor and Tony Burkett.
Alex OConnor produced another man-of-the-match performance and Casey Farmer also produced a performance worthy of note.
