Raynes Park Vale 1 - FC Deportivo Galicia 0
Sat 28th April 2018. 3pm kick off.
Combined Counties League Division 1
DGL in White with light Blue trim, Vale in home blue with yellow trim.
Weather: Mild, overcast, dry. Pitch wet from overnight rain.
League position before game 7th, DGL 12th. Same after game.
We were a bit flat 1st half but switched to full Vale mode 2nd half to dominate with 10 men.
1st half: Vale shooting towards the Grand Drive end.
Nathan Chambers makes his full RPV debut on the left wing.
Eoin gets sent off on 33 minutes for push on DGL player who had just
trampled all over his foot. DGL hit the outside foot of the post.
Neither side had many chances. No corners in first half.
Shame about Eoin straight red, misses 3 games, has played
so well all season and such an integral part of the Vale
With 10 men we boss the game. A barrage towards the end.
Was very exciting to watch.
1-0 Goal: Byron Douglas-Letts 87'.
17 yards right side of box, half volley across keeper to bottom left (see video)
Assist: Seanan Mckillop from open play after a great long kick from 'keeper Reece Turner.
Yellow cards: 20' Holmes, 84' McKillop:
Red card 33' Eoin Fraser (then Jack switched to RB)
Man of the match: Byron Douglas-Letts
(chosen by Gav, Beno & Reece Turner ) Well done B and a lovely finish.
Another clean sheet. So nice to clock them up. Such an important part of our recent good form.
Danny A. A game. Skip for the day. Immense.
Thought Tom H-G had a good game. Got really stuck in. Doesn't take any s***. Really promising.
Jack Williamson did a fantastic job filling in at right back. So versatile AND top scorer. What a player.
Not bad boys. Not bad at all. Now, we've got some games to play.
