Match Report by Charlie

This week we were playing Hanworth Sports who are one of our rivals for promotion. It was also our first game on an astro turf pitch. The game started with both teams struggling to create anything. We defended well, with Jayden making a few important saves but we didn’t have many shots and the opposition keeper wasn’t troubled. Towards the end of the first half we were beginning to get more involved in the game but we conceded which knocked our confidence, especially as we had come close to scoring ourselves.

At the start of the second half we forced the keeper into making some saves with Francis and Sylvester going close. But once again as we started to put pressure on Hanworth, they scored two quick goals. With ten minutes to go, a corner whipped in from the left was headed away to the edge of the area, where Vincent hit a half volley towards goal. It flew in past the keeper after a small deflection and we pushed forward to try and get another two goals. Unfortunately Hanworth managed to defend well enough for the remainder of the game and we were beaten 3-1.
