Leamington M1 vs Derby Ramgarhia

A well fought victory for a battered and bruised Leamington Men’s 1st team.

After suffering their first defeat in a calendar year last weekend, Leamington 1st XI looked to bounce back as 2nd met 3rd in what promised to be a battle against an aggressive Derby Ramgarhia side. Leamington started extremely well and should have gone 2-0 up in the first ten minutes, forcing the Derby keeper into some good early saves. Leamington failed to make the early pressure count as Ramgarhia slowly came into the match in what was a tense and scrappy first half, which saw both teams lose players to the sin bin. Each side struggled to get their attacking game going and the remainder of the first half was a midfield battle, as neither side managed to create many scoring opportunities.

At half time Leamington regrouped and started the second half strongly as they began to make their attacking movements more effective. At a critical point in the match, forward Joe Cooper fired in his 7th goal of the campaign with an outstanding finish on his reverse, to send Leamington 1-0 up. Ramgarhia responded well, started to increase their circle penetrations and had a series of short corners during a spell of high pressure for the Leamington defence.

Leamington then began to secure multiple short corners of their own, and really should have had a penalty stroke after a drag flick was stopped on the line illegally by a Derby defender. As we moved into the last ten minutes of the game, the pressure from Derby increased as they searched for an equaliser. Before todays fixture, Derby had scored 31 goals in 5 games, but despite hitting the post late on, the Leamington defence held strong and secured the clean sheet, with an outstanding performance from Man of the Match and centre back, Tom Kenyon-Brown. A thoroughly deserved 1-0 win keeps Leamington in 2nd place and three points off top spot. Next up is a trip to bottom of the table Coventry City University.
