Ellistown And Ibstock Utd v Greenwood Meadows

Groundhog Day

A disappointing night for the club as after a promising start Ellistown And Ibstock Utd fell away and eventually like our chairman went lame as Greenwood Meadows completed a straight forward 3-0 victory.

With hopes high we could claim our 1st victory of the season, we started the game well and should have been 2 up after 10 minutes but again our Achilles heel of not taking our chances came back to hit us hard, as Elliott King coolly slotted home on 10 minutes to give Greenwood the lead.

EIB 0-1 GW 10 mins

For rest of the 1st half we hufffed and puffed but could not break the Greenwood defence down, while Greenwood fancied there chances of a big score.

On the stoke of half time the game flared up as Dave Leigh and Chris Spencer were sent off for violent contact. After been kicked in the head, you could understand Dave's frustration and credit to him for not flooring the player.

EIB 0-1 GW HT

Could we get back into the game after the break, the answer was no as Greenwood took total control and while we had our chances to score, it was Greenwood who scored the 2nd on 60 mins through a Jack Havron penalty.

EIBS 0-2 GW 60 mins

Our night was summed up on 75 minutes when a Tommy Burdett back pass went under Jack Knowles feet and rolled into the net.

EIBS 0-3 GW 75 mins

We battled on but only some fantastic saves from James Knowles kept the final score at.

EIBS 0-3 GW FT

Summary

Another disappointing defeat that is typical of our season. We go again on Saturday away to high flying Birstall.
