Puttenham suffer loss in final preseason friendly

Puttenham went into the last pre season friendly still pondering the previous games result.

A slowish start from both teams saw Puttenham's opponents have more of the ball in the early stages and when Puttenham did win it back the turn over of ball wasn't good enough.

A couple of half chances to the home side came to nothing, but around 20 minutes in and the home side were awarded a penalty after Ollie Temple bundled over one of there players from a corner.
Cooley slotted away.

Puttenham struggled to get a foothold of the game and this came harder when Craig Gapper turned an ankle and was replaced by Steve Lewis.

1-0 could of become 2 after another penalty was awarded but this time the taker fired wide.

The home side did eventually make it 2 as a ball over the top of the back line saw the forward lob Puttenham's on rushing keeper.
0-2 half time.

Puttenham were better in the second half and used the ball like they can. The introduction of Karl Walton who was putting himself about helped the cause.

2-0 became 3 as a sloppy pass back from Ryan Axten was finished off by the winger as he rounded the keeper.

Puttenham did have chances late on as Karl and Terral linked up well up front but the goal wasn't to come.

All in all more minutes before the season starts next week was the most important thing. Plenty to work on going into the season.
3 wins and 3 defeats in pre season against varied opposition. The aim is to try and finish as close to the top of the league as we can and let's hope we can have a good season.
