"This was a really hard fought close game. Chew battled hard from the off, and in particular won the midfield battle with Barlett, and Randall outstanding and Smith hassling the opposition all over the pitch. Chew finally took the lead after some nice build up play with Allen calming slotting in the final ball. Chew should have extended their lead but their penalty woes continued with a good save from the Easton keeper.
Chew needed to keep the pressure on, and there was no let up in the intensity of the game. Chew had a couple of chances to put the game away, and Easton had an opportunity on the break. However in the end Chew saw the game out with a fine performance from the whole squad.
Nice to see Easton back in the pub after the game. And next up in January the return leg....."
Easton Cowboys 45's Report:
" Another really good game in the 45s league. It's so much nicer than the 35s!
A very close game that we were disappointed to get nothing out of. Conceded a scrappy goal and didn't create enough.
Thanks for the 10 score Chew, but I don't think we deserved it: too much moaning including at the ref!
Chew seem a good bunch of lads. Are we still lads at our age? Nice pint and chips in their local. Thanks.
See you in Bristol and in the Plough in a few weeks!"
