Surely I should win it now

So off we trekked to Swallowfield to take on title challenging Spencers Wood. We had a cracker with them at our place when our hosts fought back from a 2 goal deficit to grab a point.

They are on of two outstanding sides in our division and we knew we would need to be at our very best for the whole game. Well we could not have asked for a better start when Matthew opened the scoring early on with a fine header. The hosts came steaming back and were level midway through the half when a loose ball was smashed home. 1-1 at the break.

Within in the first 5 minutes of the 2nd half Liam took advantage of a keeping error to put us back in front. Against a good footballing side it would take a great effort to keep them at bay. Well with Michael B in top form, Matthew organising the defence superbly and backed up by Lewis, the whole midfield worked their socks off and Billy chased and harried up front on his own. I could mention all our players who put in a great shift.

In reality despite their possession the hosts only had 1 chance to equalise as we grabbed our best win of the season, our 6th form the last 7 games and to complete a 100% winning record in March. Surely I should win it now.

Well done to the whole team for that performance and the whole squad for that run.
