Match Reports

Nailsea Vets Report;

"A lovely sunny day for football..and that is about as positive as i can be about the game ! We played ok in patches but LBV's movement off the ball was the difference and although 57 year old veteran Alex Plenty hit the bar, we were steamrolled for most of the match. Well done LBV, good bunch of lads"

LB Vets Report:

" Perfect way to end the season, beautiful hot day in Nailsea with a big and wonderful looking 4g pitch! Starting team consisted of Del, Yinka, Gouldy, Ollie and Cotts, in the middle Alex, Matt D, Rob and Little Chris, up top Helmi and Marco. The returning Gus and an injured Hookie on the side lines. Pre match team talk was pretty much get the factor 50 on! Nailsea started strong, we didn’t touch the ball for the first five minutes, but when we did, we had quick ball through the middle, into Marco who flicked it into the path of Helmi for a one on one and 0 – 1 LB. Completely against the run of play! But that got us going and we started to make use of the space out wide, we were fortunate to have pretty pacey wingers and the ever running of Helmi between middle and up top meant we looked dangerous every time we got in the Nailsea half. We got a second after another break down the wing, Little Chris tucking it away. And a third before half time, 0 – 3 LB. Team talk was pretty much keep it tight at the back and break quick and direct, with one touch passing. Second half pretty much same as the first, Nailsea had a lot of the ball but didn’t create any real clear chances, we were a bit more clinical and went on to get five more in the second half, final score Nailsea 0 – 8 LB. Goal scorers Little Chris 3, Alex 2, Marco 1, Helmi 1 and Rob 1. The added bonus meant we finish in third on goal difference. Great game of footy, Nailsea were fab all the way through, played in great spirit and the Corinthian way. Thanks gents for being great hosts and for the lovely curry and chips in the pub after. Hope to see at your place again next season."
