GEORGE PUTS FARNBOROUGH TO THE SWORD!!

BIGGLESWADE TOWN 3 v FARNBOROUGH 0
Report by Mike Draxler
Sitting on the half way line as I do gives me a complete overview of the whole team and whilst George Bailey is the stand out hero, you have to admire the determination and work rate of the whole team. There is never anything short of a shift from whoever pulls on that Green Wader shirt.

Farnborough, who I am reliably informed have never played Biggleswade Town before certainly not at the Langford Road, came out of the blocks faster than the Waders. A series of miss-passes and mistakes certainly gave Farnborough the edge. Liam Gooch in goal for the home side was in irresistible form cutting out numerous crosses, high or low as the visitors forwards, Nic Cardini, Jake Evans and Kieron Forbes consistently got to the bye line. Lots of threat but no finish for the Hampshire side. The Waders created even less at the other end with no worthwhile attempts on the target. On 42 and against the run of play, Connor Hall found rampaging Robbie Parker who in turn found the unmarked George Bailey free on the left. One, two paces forward and Bailey had opened his account, with a shot across the keeper. Great time to score, so they say as the half time whistle came up in a rush.

Different game after the break, not party very often to mid-way team talks obviously Manager Nunn and Coach Bully Adams worked some magic. Pushing a higher line the Waders came into the game with a threatening poise. The last real attempt by Farnborough had Gooch beaten but it was not to be Forbes's afternoon as the ball smacked the post. Parker, Hall, Hill and Daniel were beginning to cut loose and make headway down the flanks. On 66 the same trio as the first goal, combined as Parker beat the offside, pushed on, bye line and cross for Bailey to tap in. Farnborough felt very dejected, having the last throw of the dice with a double substitution minutes earlier, had not paid dividends. Man of the Match Bailey added to his tally scoring again on 78. A peach of a ball from Hill to Hicks, bye line and into sure shot Georgie boy. A hat trick on his debut, must have been done before but not during my tenure.
Three much needed points after the disappointing results at Redditch and Kings Lynn although both teams are above us in the league, so no shame.
