Redland Ramblers Report;

"Early pressure from Lion led to 3 good goal attempts before Redland settled. A through ball from Ratty and a shot by Dan that was tipped over nearly gave Redland the advantage. Ali also came close with a header before Dan gave Redland the lead by lobbing the keeper after Mark's header put him through. Mark nearly got on the score sheet himself with a header that went narrowly wide. Lion equalised on the half hour when Redland lost the ball in midfield and a 35 yard shot found the back of the net. Half time 1-1. An inspired substitution gave Redland the lead straight after the break when Pat slid in at the far post to tap home. Unfortunately he injured his 'good knee' in the process but 1 goal in 2 minutes is not a bad return! Ali made it 3-1 shortly after with another long range effort which looked to have secured the points. After a couple of near misses from Lion Ali cam close again from distance before a well struck volley bought the score back to 3-2. With 15 minutes left Lion pulled level. Both sides had chances to win, Redland coming closest. Mark's run into the box was halted by the second agricultural challenge and Ali's free kick struck the bar. The result was a fair reflection of an occasionally over competitive game marred only by the 'back chat' that should be reserved for other football leagues."
