MENS 2ND TEAM REPORT 9TH MARCH 2019

Mens 2nd Team v Norwich City L 1-4

It’s hard to write a match report when you feel so deflated after a game but it is important to document any result. When you’re at the bottom end of the league the run of the green can play a huge part in a game. Today was one of those days.
We headed to relegation strugglers Norwich on the back of a superb win last week, hoping to maintain some momentum and pick up more points.
We welcomed John Livings in between the posts and the team remained fairly unchanged just missing hat trick hero Andy Hipwell who was away skiing.
We pressed hard as we always do but Norwich got the vital first goal and from there it was like climbing Everest.
We had chances and had by far the most possession but a game can be won or lost in the first 15 minutes and sadly this was true today. Some superb attacking play saw Norwich score some slick break away goals and for most there was nothing John could do about them. Dave Francis pulled one back for us and Kinsella had chances but was unable to put them away. Greg Jagger worked tirelessly upfront and Lawrence Baynes must be eating at least 3 Weetabix every Saturday morning as he was dominant in the middle again. It was good to see Tris Baynes get 70 minutes under his belt after the ongoing hamstring issues.
We face Sudbury at home next Saturday and still are very much in Div 1 and are still very much the authors of our own destiny.
Thanks again to Bob Skinner for his sideline management and words of wisdom.
