We started our new season against Eldwick looking amazing in our new Blue and Yellow kit , kindly sponsored by Fusion By Design.
Luke was in goal with Max and Dylan in defence, Tom on right wing, Callum on the left with Dan and Joel patrolling the centre and Bolan striker. An early goal with a great strike from Dan looked to be setting the tone for the first half as we dominated play and created numerous chances meaning Luke was pretty much a spectator. Unfortunately our lack of ability to turn chances to goals from last season seemed to be still with us. Eldwicks keeper made some great saves and as a team they defended stoutly, but how it ended 1.0 at half time nobody knows !!
Second half was exactly same, we lost count of the number of shots, saves corners we had and had to rely on Luke in goal be alert to thwart the occassional breakaway as Eldwick sensed a chance of an equalizer. The second goal came courtsey of Oliver Meskills deflected shot midway through the half.
To the boys credit they kept playing some great football and creating chances. The game ended 2-0. Shooting practise on Friday !
