Redland Ramblers Report:

" A delayed start due to no opposition or referee saw Jason take the whistle in the first half. Early opportunities fell Redlands way, but it wasn’t until the 20th minute that an accurate pass from Mark found Dan whose deft touch put the ball over the last defender and finished with a shot through the keeper’s legs Within 5 minutes the lead was increased when Sam’s dribbling run down the left and pass in to Dan on the edge of the box who then slotted in at the near post. Whilst we held the upper hand on the game this didn’t see Real go without chances. The defence kept Real at bay from a threatening forward line and when they didn’t Stand in goalkeeper Bruce (who does have his own gloves!) made a couple of full stretch saves including a finger tip save on to the cross bar to maintain Redlands lead. Sam could have put the game to bed when another mazy run saw him in to the box, sold the keeper with the eyes and then hit the post but miss of the day went to Real’s striker who from 2 yards out completely missed the ball from a right hand cross. Second half saw the introduction of Tax exile Ali and Simmo both taking up wide positions. Real continued to push forward but the defence held firm with Jambo particularly standing out. With another Real attack intercepted the ball was put behind the defence to Jason who passed back to Simmo on the edge of the box faked to shoot and slotted Dan in with a reverse through ball. His shot was saved by the keeper, but the ball fell to Simmo who hit it first time into the roof of the net. Real got back in to the game with a penalty for hand ball Redlands final goal was a particular crowd pleaser. From within our own half, Ratty and Ali interchanged down the left and when Ratty saw Simmo making a lung busting run put the ball in to box where Simmo ghosted past their centre back toward the near post and angled his left footed finish beyond the keeper. Real did add a final goal with a left shot inside the box when everyone thought the player could only kick with his right! MOM Jambo "
