Holton hit Boro for Six
Last game of the season ends in defeat
This week we travelled the short distance out of town to face AFC Holton le Clay. A bit of a after the lord mayor show with a few players claiming injury after Thursday nights cup final victory so manager Scott was force to make quite a few changes to the team.
The game started well, then in the 7th minute Holton took the lead. A dangerous ball played into the box and as CJ PEART
tried to clear it, the ball flew over Harrison Tice
and into the top corner of the net. 1-0. Boro did not let this affect them and continued to play well but Holton doubled there lead in the 32nd minute with a fine strike flying into the bottom corner of the goal. 2-0. Holton scored again just before half time this time Harrison Tice
wrong footed as the shot took a deflection on its way into the net. although he did make a great effort to keep it out just failing to reach the ball. 43 mins 3-0. Half Time. Boro really had not done a lot wrong but found themselves trailing in the game.
The second half started better and Bill Nicholson
went on a great run taking on half the Holton team before flicking the ball to Paul Jones
who had the easy task of beating the keeper, 48 mins 3-1. Boro now on top looked like scoring every time they went forward but for some good saves from the stand in Holton keeper. Then the game changed in the 64th minute when Jones was red carded putting Boro down to 10 men. Holton now with the player advantage scored again in the 68th minute with a well work goal. 4-1. Holton themselves where lucky not go have a man sent off in the 71st minute and moments later they added a 5th with a headed goal. 5-1 73rd minute. 10 minutes later they scored the last goal of the game and it ended that way 6-1.
Lucarly's Man of the Match was not decided this week but I will give it to Ben Thompson
, came on in the 38th minute, played out of position in centre midfield and took the game to Holton.
So my view of the game. Spoilt by the referee, that's all I'm going to say.
So that's the season ended. a creditable 6th in our first season in division 1 after jumping straight up 2 divisions and a cup win. We will of course over the next week do a quick write up with a few details of how our season has gone.
