New Season, Same issues.

A game v Radford saw the 2nd and 3rd placed teams last season face up in the first weekend of the season. A few injuries, unavailability and 2 stag do's the night before meant we were always going to have to earn anything from the game.

Luckily we started strong from the get go. Roared on by the sobering up bench, who looked like they would have fitted in poolside at Albufeira, Johnny Adair pounced on a loose ball in the box and rolled home to open his and the clubs account for the season. Bishops stayed on top and were creating a number of chances and should have been further ahead before Radford equalised in fortuitous circumstances. Charlie had all the time in the world to pick his spot and launch the ball where he wanted in the Radford half. What he actually did was smack it straight into the side of Cooper's head from close range, knocking the Burns-a-like off his feet while the ball looped into the net. 1-1.
Cooper did then create another goalscoring opportunity, this time at the right end as he chased a through ball and was brought down by the Radford Keeper. Jase, who had not long come on for Joel and was now allowed to be wearing his shirt, stroked the penalty home to put Bishops back in the lead. Tom O'Callaghan was having a very strong half and got his rewards for his efforts when he lashed the ball home from 25 yards, right where the spiders live-top corner-you beauty.

Second half was a different game, with Bishops seemingly sobering up and running out of gas. Changes were made to freshen it up and this did help, but Radford and their 183 long throws were kept at arms reach, with Charlie not really having much to do other than walk to get the ball and being shouted at for not going fast enough. Radford pulled one back when Stefan got caught out by a ball over the top, George arrowed a strike into the bottom corner to reduce the deficit but this was not enough to stop Bishops going home with 3 points.
