A trip to Essex in the Mid Herts League .
With two recent defeats we wanted to get back to winning ways against an unknown opposition
The pitch was pretty bare in parts but true but offered a slope so could be a game of two halves ... Well it wasnt - unfortunately
First half we started well and against a pretty big side we managed to hold our own in the middle and when we managed to get the ball out to the returning Jonny M we got behind them and caused afew problems . We took the lead through a flick on from a james free kick and Jack B put the ball away well into the corner . Sumners started to use the slope and before long drew level . From then on we seemed to sit back and not get tight enough and by half time we were 3-1 down !!
Second half saw Ollie P come on for Andrew , we had the slope and hoped we could use it to our advantage
Alas not , we werent really able to get into any real passing game and the longer the game went Sumners looked dangerous whenever they broke . the next goal was key and it fell to Sumners who ran away down the right and finished well . Our heads dropped abit and although we had the ball in the net from a george freekick it was flagged offside . As we pushed fwd we got hit afew more times on the break and final score 7-1
So a tough three weeks since our great start at King George .
We look for a return against King George next week and hope we can compete more against a team we have always had good games against .
Team Jack T , Alex C , Ollie B . Nicolai , Pei Zhe , Andrew , James , George , Jonny , Jack B , Sam B , Ollie P
