Ash V Ash - Part 1
Tough night at Shawfields
This was a long awaited match by the players, Ash Sunday v Ash Sunday Select, .. less so by John Davison. So it came to pass that both teams let down John in what became a stupid bad tempered match infront of the clubs Chairman and committee and some u9 parents and players!
The match started out rather well, both teams pushing forward and keen to show what they can do. Ash Sunday were edging the play with a few more shots on target with Mickey making some cracking saves. The dead lock was finally broken on 28 mins, nice interplay between Tim and Burley lead to burley driving the ball across the box and Oh slamming home. 1-0.
Select didn't stop trying and had chances due to Sunday giving away silly freekicks in their half. Phil Faunch came closest with a dipping direct freekick slamming off the bar with the keeper beaten. Towards the end of the first half some niggly tackles started to show. HT 1-0
Second was really defined by a disallowed goal. Select feeling very hard done by when another freekick went floating in and the ball found the net, whistle had gone and the linesman flag was up... confusion. The ref had disallowed the goal for obstruction, freekick to Sunday. This angered Select. From this point on both teams thought the best way was to show up 'Head of Sunday Football' John by becoming petulant and losing their heads. Jed booked for a freekick, Ritchie booked for a foul, Joe booked for trying to kick out at Ritchie , Ritchie kicking out at a few people, Ritchie threatening John D and calling him cheat, Select players taking a pop at John D saying he had got to the ref to cheat , Ritchie booked and sent off for kicking out, Jed booked and sent off for a reckless tackle... To be honest ALL PATHETIC from grown men.
Its a real shame because amongst this childness Tim had a great run and chipped Mickey to score in off the post. 2-0.
The match ends with players needing to take a big look at themselves. The next match is 28th March, lets see what happens. Both Jed and Richie will be banned for that game.
