3 wins on a great weekend

1 month ago By Wayne Jones

3 senior sides all get 3 points

With the 3rd team not having a game it was left to our other teams to see what Saturday would bring.
The first 11 won a tight contest against previously unbeaten and one of this years title favourites Wantage Town 1-0 down the Rec.
Ross Gabriel showed no signs of rustiness after the Vegas trip and notched a second half winner. Jack Rutter had a superb game in an unfamiliar central defender position and was Man of the Match

The Reserves travelled to Cheltenham boosted by the appearance of 1st team keeper Rich Thomas and they too came away with a win.
After going 2-0 up inside 20 minutes with goals from George Jelly and Jack Jeramiah, the hosts scored a scrappy goal just before the break.

Tom Maxted restored the 2 goal gap straight from the kick off in the second half and with a little more composure we could have made it more comfortable.
Arran Price had a superb game and was Man of the Match.

Our 4th team kept up their decent start to the season in a real physical encounter at home to Redmarley.
The ref brandished 10 yellows and there were 5 goals with the lads running out 4-1 winners. Ashley Bonner bagged a brace with Rich Turner & Danny Burnell completing the rout.
On another day they could have had 8 or 9, but will settle for the 3 points.
