Mendlesham FC v Old Newton FC

FIRST TEAM NEWS.....

Well with a few away games coming up the first was a trip down the road to Mendlesham, on a fresh Saturday afternoon. The pitch was looking in good condition and with Mendlesham bringing in some decent players in Oli Canfer we knew we had to be on our game to get the points that we need. We didn’t get of to the best start conceding a soft corner which some how went in, very sloppy from where I was standing.
So we give the opponents a goal lead again and then we decided to start playing. Luke Austin made a chance on the left but no one could finish, however we got back on level terms about 20mins in. Austin did well on by line to find Jack who then picked Baxter out at the back post to slot it in a very good team goal.
With Mendlesham looking dangerous on the break, but not hitting the target, the lads at the back had to be alert, with Canfer and Lockwood slipping good balls through. We then took the lead when Austin got on the score sheet and then another when Mendlesham had a bad few mins defending in which the Ref gave a back pass, Jordi stepped up to find the top corner with help of a deflection to make it 3-1. We then lost Deano to a badly broken nose, this was a big loss as Deano was winning a lot for us. So a change about with Robbo coming on, we then lost Baxter to injury at half time which gave Stone a run with both lads putting in a great shift in the second half, both working hard for the team. The second half had a few chances either end, Mendleshams keeper made a good save from a one on one with Austin, but they got a reward 10 mins from the end from a ball in the box which fell to former Newton player Abbot who finished well. So 3 points against a good Mendlesham team who I think if they keep their players playing will be a tricky team to play, they are all good lads.
After the game we had a players night at the club for the annual race night which was a good turn out, even Rodney from Only Fools and Horses turned up .
This week we travel the short distance to Bacton with both teams sitting in 2nd and 3rd, level pegging, should be a good game !
