"A closely fought match with lots of chances created by both teams and great performances by both keepers. Chew started strongly and created a string of chances before Lewis scored the opening goal. Recliners rallied strongly and scored a well taken equaliser just before half time. The second half was another tight affair with Recliners notching a second and then defending resolutely to close out the win. A good performance from Chew and a fine match played in great spirit."
Recliners FC Report:
" This was a terrific game of football played on a lovely morning over in Chew. It was competitive and hard fought but with a great camaraderie between the teams. Chew had the better of the early exchanges and scored on the break mid way through the first half. This seemed to enliven a sleepy Recliners and we began to exert some pressure of our own, Bob Melville eventually equalizing with a terrific finish. In the second half we created a lot of chances, the Chew keeper made some outstanding saves. Our keeper then pulled his hammy bending down to pick up the ball and we feared the worst, but stand in keeper Simon Bennett remained calm under pressure and we defended the Chew front line well. Toby Dykes nicked the winner early in the second half. Thanks for the great hospitality after the game at the Bear and good luck to Chew for the season."
