LB Vets Report;

"Still without 3 or 4 key players, we recruited Rich (again), recall for Big Jas who hadn’t played for us for a year and Springer and Chris B making debuts. It was a nice bright, fresh Sunday morning and Hookie was actually on time (for once) to open the gates and get the nets up. We started well, Big Jas holding the ball up nicely and allowing Chris and Pete to get forward in support, we created some decent chances but couldn’t hit the target. Pete, Hooks, Springer….Barn door comes to mind! Golden Hill are decent, fast and strong all over the pitch, they played good football with their wide men staying high and putting Rich and Simmo2 under pressure. Just before half time, Cotts drilled the ball to Big Jas he held it up and released Chris down the right, he beat a couple of players and slotted in nicely. 1 – 0 LB, yay. Our half time team talk consisted on get the ball up front a bit quicker and stop the silly fouls. So we started the second half by giving away another silly free kick just outside the box, great! The Golden Hill chap smacked the ball it deflected off the wall wrong footed Del and roiled over the line. 1-1. Game got a bit scrappy for a while but we upped it a little and Springer found himself in the box to coolly side foot home a scuffed shot by Simmo2 for 2 – 1 LB. We got into our stride and the pace of Pete and Chris started to show and shortly after Chris got his second following some decent build up play. 3 – 1 LB. A couple of silly moments followed and some ‘interesting’ tackles, little bit of bickering but this was mainly due to our number 7 being grumpy with everyone. Right at the end, we had a free kick and Big Jas took it Roberto Carlos style and smashed it straight into the top corner, 4 – 1 LB. Final whistle, handshakes all round. A good hard game of football, an excellent referee and best of luck to Golden Hill for the rest of the season. LB MoM Big Jas for his hold up play and beautiful free kick. "
