Match Reports

Retainers FC Report;

"Really enjoyed watching and playing in this game. Red Star gave a good game last season but this game was on par with those classic Liverpool v Newcastle roller coaster games. In the first 20 mins and being 2-0 up it looked like it could of been a long afternoon for Red Star but as our maximum match fitness levels began to run Red Star played there way back into the game going into half time at 2-2. The second half started with Red Star on the front foot but as in football we managed another quick fire double 4:2. This by no means put the flames of Red Star out and they continued to probe causing our defence problems on a number of occasions. A late goal from Red Star made the last 15 mins all the more interesting but we hung on to win 4:3. Worth noting Red Stars keeper who pulled of a worldly save that I even gave him a hug for. Like playing these lads they playin the right way are good competitors and i am sure they are disappointed not to get a point. Good luck for the season gents"

Red Star Republic Report:

" A remarkable game, not least for the fact I can't remember anyone moaning about anything at any time. Retainers threatened to go out of sight early on with two swift strikes, but Red Star responded well to be level at half time. Another bish-bosh goal combo threatened to floor the Reds once again, but a late strike meant the game was alive to the end. A really enjoyable match played in a proper Corinthian spirit, thank you to Retainers for hosting. "
