The Res XI after their good win last week faced unbeaten EBOG's in a game where we badly needed the three points to strengthen our bid to avoid relegation. EBOG fielded a very experienced side who dominated the early stages against our much younger team, our defence was too square which enabled them to have several one on ones with our goalie, which they either missed or he saved, they eventually took the lead but within ten minutes we equalised direct from a free kick.
A half time talk from Coach Steve reorganised the team somewhat and we began to match them in midfield and eventually took the lead with a good shot and held out by defending well to secure a good win.
This was an encouraging result for the Reserves who were well organised by Steve Morgan, they kept their heads despite verbal provocation and with little help from the referee who seemed to have left his cards and watch at home.
In our 2 remaining fixtures the 5th XI lost 1-0 to Old Finchleians.
The 7th XI had a good away win in the AFA Cup 3-2 against Old Bealonians.
There are no league matches now for the next two weeks but we have an inter club game at the club on Boxing day and the bar will be open, so if you want to get away, come along.
A Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year to my reader.
