Hajdu strike decides game in CUP's favour

Csaba Hajdu's second ever goal wins the game

CUP arrived at Godmanchester on a warm Thursday evening, looking to start their season with a win against a tricky Godmanchester Rovers Reserves side.

Team: Alex, Ryan, Kenny ©, Matt, Csaba (1), Schof, Rickie, Callum, Stuart, Guy, Rob
Subs: Kendal, Hilaire, Tom, Scott

After a good warm-up, we started the brighter and imposed ourselves on the game. We quickly worked out that Godmanchester would play a route one style of football to their big striker, which was nullified by Kenny's physical presence and winning every header. We created the better of the chances in the first half but couldn't quite find the cutting edge to lead.

The second half started similarly to the first, with us having good chances after great build-up play but found a Goddy keeper in decent form. Alex was called upon to make a couple of saves; although his main touches of the ball were to claim crosses into the box.

The game remained level until Csaba cut inside from left back, and from 25 yards struck the ball sweetly as it sailed across the keeper and into the bottom corner. It was only his second goal in 10 years at the club! We kept it tight for the remaining minutes, clearing any attacks from a desperate Goddy and utilising the roll on, roll off to record 3 points in our first game.

It's fantastic to win our first game of the season so early, after taking until early December last season to earn any points, and things are looking promising for the season ahead. We return to the Cass on Tuesday...
