"Pigeons were certainly in flight in the first 45, despite Recliners taking a shock lead after ten minutes. The combination of superior fitness, ability and a strong wind behind them was too much for the Recliners backline and a tough first half saw the Pigeons 6-1 ahead, although three of the goals owed something to the wind's assistance. Recliners made a decent fist of the second half, at least giving the Pigeons a game, two really good goals were added towards the end as fatigue began to set in. Although it was a one sided affair, the game was played in great spirit by all and we wish Pigeons all the best for the rest of the season."
Bristol Pigeons Report:
" Strong wind and Pigeons began with wind in their favour. A couple of minutes in they scored with their first attack, a cross / shot hit first time with their wingers first touch.
The wind and pressure then built and a few direct corner goals but pigeons in from and then continued to play well ending half at 6-1. Second half the change in wind meant pigeons were pinned back for successive corners but defended well and then scored a couple more on the counter, finished 8-1. The game was played in excellent spirit. "
