Worked hard, however, 2 players made the difference...
The boys came out of the blocks from the very start and played really well to go 1 nil up. It came from a threaded through ball to Nathan, who had the composure to round the goal keeper and clip into the bottom corner.
The home side then brought on 2 unsigned players which were at another level, with one currently playing for Barnet. Undaunted, the boys continued to maintain a good level throughout and always trying to play the better football. Our style of football was hindered due to the reasonably muddy adult pitch, which in the end took its toll with the home side scoring 2 goals in the last 10 minutes for a 2-1 win. It could possibly have been 3-1 but Brad pulled out a world class save to his right side to deny a certain goal.
There 2 higher level players was the big difference between the sides, otherwise the end result would have been different. However, the boys never gave up and worked hard throughout. The key driving force in maintaining us was Lewis Potter, who was quite rightly rewarded with the man of the match.
We are finding it tough going at the moment and know it could get tougher. We are aiming to keep the boys as positive as possible and continue to try to play football the right way. All are giving their best which is so important and have a great unity. Come on yerrrrr Scholars.....
