Scrappy Game But It`s Three Points!
The Elite under-16 side were able to finally play back at the Dog & Duck on Saturday when they looked to complete the `double` over Shefford United.
Scrappy Game But It`s Three Points!
Published - 25th Jan 20

With skipper George Coleman suffering a recurrence of his groin injury at Netherton United in the under-18 game in midweek, Brady Stratford moved into the back four alongside Nat Allam.

 

The opening half was an entertaining affair littered on occasions with some niggly fouls, especially from one of the visiting forwards who eventually received a deserved yellow card for persistent infringements.

 

The opening goal for the Doughboy came midway through the half when Shefford`s excellent keeper made a fine save from an Eman Kyeremeh effort, but Jack Cawkill-Robins was on hand to smash home the rebound.

 

The second goal a few minutes later was somewhat controversial but I am going to do my `Arsene Wenger impression` of saying I didn`t see it!

 

A cross was `headed` in by Brady Stratford at the far post the Shefford bench shouting for handball and others for a push. However, the goal was given!

 

But inexplicably, after creating very little, we allowed the visitors back into the game when some sloppy play in our own half and a lack of tackling saw them go through to beat Alfie Whitchurch, who had little to do in goal up to that point.

 

One of the rules of the Junior Premier League is that every player should be given at least 40 minutes (a half).

 

Given the competitive nature of the league we`re in though, that makes it tough and we brought all five of our subs on at half-time.

 

Now all five are good players there`s no disputing that they wouldn`t be with us otherwise.

 

However, after such a good performance in the first half, the changes definitely disrupted us and although, again, the visitors rarely threatened due to some excellent defending from Stratford, Allam, stand-in skipper Oli Anderson and Mason Jackson and then Joe Hobson, we also lost our way.

 

A silly episode with 15 minutes to go saw the visiting keeper refuse to leave the field when the referee `sin-binned` him and then saw red.

 

It all fell apart after that with us pushing for the win but Shefford defending well in front of their outfield replacement in goal.

 

It finished 2-1 and there were plenty of positives Zac Arnold giving another tremendous performance in midfield to make it successive man of the match displays after his excellent showing in the under-18s in midweek and the solidity we showed at the back without George Coleman.
