Full time 2-1. HT 0-1
Saturday 16th December 2017
Combined Counties League Division 1. 6th vs 7th
Kick Off: 3pm Conditions: Muddy, Rain
No Keeper. Joe Bell deputised in goal. Did very well. Thank you Joe.
Early play and possesion was all Vale but on 34 minutes we went
1 down from a long ball and a one on one for stand in keeper
Joe Bell. Long ball not a bad tactic, eliminated the midmield mud.
They played that a lot in the 1st half.
Nathan Lewis was bought down for a pen on 63 minutes
which Jack Williamson put away with aplomb low to the keepers
left. 18th goal of the season for Jack and it's not even Christmas yet.
Great Pen, well done Jack. 1-1 after some better Vale play in the 2nd half.
The Winner. 2-1
Great goal this. Jack Williamson recieves the ball just inside their half, runs into the right side
of the penalty box with 2 defenders in hot pursuit. Jack gets right to the goal line and manages to slide hook the ball back across the charging Seanon McKillop and sub Ben. The ball eludes Seanan but finds Ben Jordan who manages a quick controlling touch than bang! 2-1 in the back of the onion bag from about 11 yards. An absolutely fantastic finish and great work by Jack.
A comfortable 2-1 win in the end.
Man of the match.
Very tempted to give it to Jack Williamson for his pen and great assist
but as he has so many scoring points already the award goes to sub Ben Jordan for his superb
finish to score a quality winner and for delighting his watching Mum and Dad.

Nice to see Max Springall back in the blue and Yellow. Shame neither came on but
full bench today.
Johann Kirsten had a bad injury as he was "cut in half" by a very bad tackle
near the duggouts. Had to come off and think he had to leave the ground for treatment. Hope he is OK.
2nd half we played uphill.
Nice to see Danny Alderton start a game again after a long injury.
On Sunday, some of the youth teams had a big Christmas Party.
It was great to see the clubhouse full of people and having fun.
