5th XI vs Ashford (Away) | 22 Feb 20

Lost 3-2

Scorers: Toby Rowney & Josh White

MoM: Elliot Spencer Tanner

DoD: Wildman… working!

Written from afar… Captain InAbsentia reports, from the position of non-playing skipper! … Indeed, the group WhatsApp are showing signs of mutiny as a result of the Wildman’s erratic attendance record, with posts such as “Rich you’re my captain” and “Dave you’re my captain”!! …. In the Wildman’s defence, he was actually at work… really!

Anyway, the game against Ashford did not supply the hatrick of wins so much desired by the side. 3-0 down at half time, it could so easily have been 2-0 in our favour, but opportunities came and went.

The second half showed what the 5s are all about. Spirit, courage, enjoyment … and so 2 goals later (Toby & Josh), we were on the comeback trail. Unfortunately, it was not enough.

MoM was Elliot for a fine debut in goal, making a number of good savesđź‘Ť
