Blues hold league leaders to a 2-2 draw on a memorable day at Imber Court
Met picked up a point as the Blues welcomed high-flying Billericay to Imber Court
On a dull, wet, overcast and grey day, Met Police played host to league leaders Billericay Town. All the colour of the day was bought to Imber Court by the numerous rainbow flags on display as we hosted the football v homophobia day at Imber Court which also included halftime games involving many of the Met Police’s junior section.
To the game, and Met Police took the lead through Jay Gasson as he volley home to give the Blues a 1-0 lead. The lead was short-lived as the visitors equalised through Jake Robinson who ran clear to finish past Williams in the Met goal. Both teams were trying to assert themselves on the game. Having had the ball in the back of the net twice only to be disallowed for off-side, Billericay took a lead in to halftime as Ricky Modeste capitalised upon a mix up in the Blues backline to make it 2-1 to the visitors.
The second half continued in a similar fashion as both teams had efforts on goal. The next goal looked crucial as the Met pushed for an equaliser and Billericay looked to secure all 3 points. It was the home side however who managed to register next on the score sheet as Johnny Wright slid home to level the scores at 2-2. Both teams pushed for a winner late on but in the end, the game finished with honours even and the healthy crowd at Imber Court will have enjoyed what they had seen.
