Anyone seen Martyn?

Knebworth scored early, lovely cross field ball found Jim who slotted home. Knebworth rarely score first against Welwyn, happy days on a lovely sunny day at the Rec. James tore his achilles after 10mins, joining the illustrious company of Barney, Jono and Paul on the injury list. Still no sign of Martyn, so Ally joined the match. Lucky cross-shot from deep made it 1-1 at half time as Welywn got into the game and put Wayne and Ally under pressure in the centre of defence. The cattle drank heavily from the trough at half time in the early morning heat. Welwyn started the second half the stronger, and made it 2-1 early on. Tony was excellent in goal, but then damanged his hip and played the rest of the game on one leg. There was a break in play, Dave Knights replaced his broken peg leg for a new lightweight replacement leg. This break allowed a tactical discussion between Lewis and James. Nick was moved upfront, "they won't be able to cope with my pace" said Nick, who was moaning of tiredness in the first half. Nick made an impact, Lewis made it 2-2.

Both sides could have got a third with Nick, Rob and Lewis looking dangerous going forward, and Dave x 2, Ally and Wayne looking vulnerable at the back. The match highlight was when the Welwyn forward broke clear of the defence. With minutes to go he ran at the stationary Tony, who genuinely couldn't move due to the earlier injury. Then the forward's hamstring went, he tried to carry on bravely, approached Tony, miskicked and Tony on one leg, threw a punch at the bouncing ball to clear.
