Match Reports

Easton Cowboys Report;

"This game was played on a really wet day with a partially waterlogged 3G pitch. big respect to Chew Magna for the attitude that they approached the game - hard but very fair, and although even there players said it didn't feel like a 6-0 (nearer a 3-1) there class up front made the result what is was. Chew Magna are a true asset to the spirit of the League."

Chew Magna Vets Report:

" On a day when arm bands and life jackets were more appropriate than football kit Easton Cowboys played host to Chew Magna on a 3G pitch. With both teams trying to play football and after the first 20 minutes this looked to heading for a very close game. Chew took the lead following a great ball from F George which C. Mountford ran on to, took the keeper on and rolled the ball into the goal. Chews second came from another ball from George with Mountford scoring his second. Easton Cowboys then stepped up a gear and finished the first half the stronger side but with Chews defence of Parsons, Elly and Jones holding strong and with Kembury, Dykes working hard to assist them on the flanks, Easton Cowboys were unable to capitalise so 0-2 at half time. The second half with the rain still pouring and surface water now expanding down both sides of the pitch started. Chew had brought on the subs of A. Cutler, M.Nye and D. Boucher. Easton Cowboys started the stronger and playing their best football but again great defending and even M. Smith and L.Bishop back tracking to help out prevented Easton from scoring. Chew then delivered the sucker punch and scored their third when D. Shore scored from close range this was quickly followed by his second goal and Chews fourth. Easton Cowboys did not give up and continued to threaten Chews goal but Chew held firm. Chews fifth and goal of the game if not season, came following a high clearance from Easton Cowboys and with the ball dropping F. George on the turn hit a volley from outside the box back into the top corner of the net. Chew completed the scoring when Nye crossed from out wide and with S. Kembury waiting to pounce the Easton Cowboys defender turned the ball into his own net which if he only knew about Kemburys finishing would have been better letting him have a shot at goal. A great game with both teams playing good football in very wet conditions. This result was harsh on Easton Cowboys as the game was much closer than the result suggests. Big thanks to Easton Cowboys for hospitality and all the best for the rest of the season."
