Buckley lose out in local derby

Buckley failed to build on last week’s great win against a very well organised defensive Flint Town. Although Buckley had slightly more of the possession in the middle of the park once again they didn’t take the few chances that came their way.

The game started with Buckley keeping Flint pegged back in their own half and it was only after fifteen minutes that Flint was able to create an opening and were thwarted by a good save by Adam McGee. Buckley responded with good inter play between Bradley Williams and Mike Thompson and the probing Jacob Evans but failed to work ex Buckley player Ben Jones in Flint’s goal.

It was another ex-Buckley player, Adam Eden, who, five minutes later, received ball on the left wing, beat one man and his cross was met by Flint’s Andy Brown whose effort evaded Buckley’s Adam McGee to put Flint ahead.

The second half started at a break-neck speed and within one minute Asa Hartford’s shot was well saved by Flint’s goalkeeper. Buckley continued to try and break down Flint’s defence but with Matty Holt in commanding form were restricted to very few openings. Buckley fell further behind when they lost possession in Flint’s half, and a four man Flint move saw Richie Foulkes score an unstoppable goal.

To Buckley’s credit the team never gave up and could have scored a couple of goals but for the heroics of Ben Jones in Flint’s goal. The most memorable one being an effort from substitute Mike Cronshaw that looked as if it was going in but for the goal keeper to just tip the ball just over the bar.
