Flint Town United 2 Guislfield 0

For the umpteenth time, Guilsfield failed to cope with Flint’s use of the ground conditions and were undone in the first half. Having shipped two goals, Guilsfield's task became that much harder on the stroke of half time when Callum Bromley was sent off after brandishing an elbow into Ged Kinsella.
To our credit, we changed the formation at the interval, and we had a real go in the second half, which was a much more even affair, but by then the damage was done. Flint had much the better of the first half and took the lead in the 19th minute after Andy Brown dispossessed Richards. He raced down the right,and delivered a cross to the far post, which Mark Cadwallader headed home. Brown almost got on the score sheet himself a few minutes later, but his header just cleared the bar.
Flint doubled their advantage on 29 minutes, thanks to Dylan Allshorn in an advanced position, and being in the place to slot home a cross from Cadwallader, as the Guilsfield defence were caught napping, looking for the Assistant Referee to raise his flag.
Brown pounced on a loose ball in the area, as the game approached half time, and hit a shot that just cleared the bar. Almost the last action of the half saw Guilsfield reduced to 10 men, as Bromley received his straight red card after clashing with Kinsella.
In the second half, Guilsfield offered much sterner resistance despite being a man short. Indeed, we almost pulled a goal back straight away, as Jake Cook briefly got free and ran into the Flint box. However, Tom Kemp did well to get back at Cook and managed to dispossess him before he could get a telling shot off.
Flint were happy to settle on their two goal lead as Guilsfield felt let down by a couple of decisions which didn’t go our way on the day.
A good shift by the lads after a hard game on Tuesday night, which left the squad a bit thin with a couple of the players carrying knocks. Hopefully, we will be able to name a string squad versus Prestatyn next Saturday.
Mike Jones, Callum Bromley, James Parry, Andy Ford, Sam Litchfield (c), Robbie James, George Clifton, Chris Cathrall, Adam Jenkins, Jake Cook, Jack Richards. Unused Subs - Stuart Rogers, Nathan Leonard, Aaron Lloyd
