Bingham Town Red 3 -2 Clifton All Whites
MOM - Dylan Szmid - awesome today, was a machine on an off the ball, started so many attacks and fought and fought off the ball!
Struggling on a tough and boggy pitch after all the rain this match really could have gone either way!
after feeling the pressure for the first 5 minutes, Dylan beautifully sent through Leo on the 6th minute who smashed one bottom right hand corner.
as the first half was drawing on the pitch was draining the lads legs of energy and Bingham played some nice footy to get the equaliser on 20 minutes and with our heads down after playing particularly well they took the lead before the end of the half.
Knowing we could do better the lads worked their hardest to get the equaliser when some nifty and strong work from Archie and Stanley at the back sent the ball up field, as the ball bounced around it fell to Bailey who smashed it home for 2-2!
We carried on pushing hard for the win whilst keeping a great shape to the side, goal mouth scrambles followed and the keeper was difficult to beat being in the right place at the right time... the ball fell kindly to Oli Sturman on the half volley who caught it sweetly but it went over the bar.
Bingham then countered and whipped one into our box with a 1 vs 1 situation as to who would get there first, they did and got the lead!
A great game, extremely competitive and such a shame we came away with nothing.
Well done boys, very proud as always as our quality does speak volumes as we continue to grow.
