4:5:1 Sanju (GK) Dan-Colin-Sean-Pablo Adam-Jay-Oli-Miles-Mike Rory
1 min won corner but cleared everyone
5 mins Miles make a great run but linesman claims he crossed the backline
8 mins hospital pass from Oli? to Colin leaves there player steaming through into the box to make it 1-nil
Heads up we keep going
10 mins Oli finds the ball outside the opposition box and fires one in however the shot deflects and falls to Dan who puts into the netting
12 mins Rory somehow turns the back line and shoots from nothing, everyone already walking back even though the ball slips between the keepers legs and the opposition scramble to clear
15 free kick sees miles shot heading for goal – the keeper pulls off a great save
16 resultant corner is high and long sees Dan at the back head back towards the centre of the box, Mike collects and rockets one in 1-1
20mins Adam/Miles/Rory off swapping positions for , Jeff/Matteo/Paddy
½ time Oli and Jay off, Bryn into midfield, Jeff dropping in and Cowley on the left
Back onto the pitch with Jay giving the rallying cry “take no pink prisioners”
Cowley started brightly down the left with his trademark kick and run “through ball to himself” move seeing lots of action.
A few interplay moves with Paddy could have worked with a bit more patience however we kept getting caught offside.
10 mins in Adam/Miles back on with Dan/Pablo off and Jeff/Bryn dropping to left back/right back respectively (Mike and Bryn later
Instant results with Miles picking up a “pass” from Matteo in the middle of the park, spotting Cowley offside down the left and the keeper off his line wisey chose a long range belter in off the cross bar to make it 2:1
Shortly after a corner saw Mike rise up to make it a brace for the evening 3:1 and coasting
Strange moment with the ref alledging Sanju had picked up the ball twice so a free kick nearly on the goal line. Although it’s indirect any other team would have belted one in to deflect off the players on the line, however the Spartans present a formidable presence and the wussy opposition could only pass backwards and hoof over for a rugby conversion.
Sigh of relief and with 10 mins left off came Paddy and Matteo off Patrick / Bryn on.
Some more pressure with dubious free kicks and corners however the result never looked in dispute and Mike nearly had a hatrick only for the opposition keeper to get his fingertips in front to spoil the party.
