Only two games for the club this weekend, but two great wins.
A great result for the 1st XI after last week’s farce. After dominating the opening proceedings, we were given our just rewards after a corner from Scott played out to the edge of the box to Charlie, whose shot squirmed under the keeper from around 20 yards. Might have been an OG…
However ten minutes before half time, CEV grabbed an equaliser through a mazy run from their right winger, teeing up a corner at the far post for a nicely taken header. 1-1 at HT.
The second half was quite end-to-end, and the difference was made during a period where a CEV CB was in the sinbin. Cam got the ball out from under his feet, set it to the side and smashed it in from 20-25 yards as well. The remainder of the game was broadly a backs to the wall job, credit to the team for holding out and taking the three points. Special mention to Mooney and Callum who made great saves and multiple last ditch tackles to preserve the lead and win.
An impressive win for the 4th XI too, taking them into the Semi-final of the LFFA, having spent 60 minutes playing with ten men after Pete’s red card and the pitches in a dreadful state.
Can only assume Joey did the Bebeto when he scored after the birth of his daughter. Goals shared elsewhere with Dan, Kes and Titch. Onto the semi and a real change of silverware this year.
