Another barmy Octobers day and only our second league start of the season . After our great showing on Day One we knew we would be in for a tough test against Risdon , many of the team whom we knew from last season . The fisrt half started fairly evenly with Sharks gaining some good movement down the wings - especially the left , but unable to create many real openings. Mid way through the half a challenge in the Sharks box and the ref awarded a Penalty which was put away well by the Risdon player . Remainder of half was pretty even until the last minute when Risdon broke through and put away their second . It was going to be a key first 10-15 minutes at start of second half . The Sharks needed a breakthrough but we just couldnt get through a pretty well organised defence. We were getting caught afew times at the back as we pushed for a goal and sure enough got punished not once but three more times with some good finishing from Risdon . Final Score 0-5 and whilst the First half we were unlucky to be 0-2 down second half we struggled against a good side
Next match our old mates from Hertford Town !!!
