Jags overcome Division 1 opposition
...with a battling performance against Aspley Guise
With County Cup opponents unable to fulfil their 2nd Round fixture, Jags management organised a development friendly against Division 1 Aspley Guise. After a couple of early narrow escapes, the Jags settled and took the lead - perhaps slightly against the run of play. However, a strengthening performance saw a deserved 3-1 advantage secured by half-time - and the 3rd goal an outstanding score, the result of an uninterrupted sequence of passing from box to box. Aspley remained a constant threat though, as the U12 Jags had to compete with the strength and speed of capable U13 opponents. Some untidiness at the back and some chances going astray up front, meant victory was never assured until the final whistle - but some fine football and characteristically determined battling across all areas of the pitch was enough to see the Jags home 5-4 and notch a notable merited win over an established Division 1 outfit.
