2013/14 Season

1st Team Results

Nov 23

1st Team 0 - 10 Old Owens
Date: 2013-11-23
Venue: Home
Referee: Billy Ballard

When you are going up against the best team in the Southern Amateur League without seven of your starting 11 you know you are in for a difficult day. That said the fist 35 mins there was not much in the game with Owens getting matched on the pitch in most positions, where they did look sharper was in front of goal with both the strikers getting in dangerous positions on a few occasions. Egbertians also looked dangerous with the pace of Ryan Folan who seemed to back the Owen defenders up.

Just after 35 mins and Owens took the lead after the Egs CB showed him inside and the forward took the gift and slotted home a good finish, we held on a bit longer but another mistake at the back put the visitors 2-0 up at the break.

The second half we mistakenly changed formation to try and get goals, that and some shocking defensive errors lead to a rout by a much fitter, more experienced and bloody good side.

Credit to the lads who played until the end and tried to keep some form of discipline on the pitch, and credit to Old Owens who were a good bunch of lads who didn’t rub it in and just kept playing.

Next time we will ensure we have our strongest 14 !
