Not one of our better weeks the 1st XI met their first defeat of the season, losing a close encounter 3-2. As I had previously warned, the opposition Old Lyonians were up for this fixture and won a very close contest, a nice club according to our Chairman.
The Res XI put in a good performance against a strong Old Meadonians side in the AFA Cup drawing 0-0 after extra time and losing the dreaded penalty shoot out 5-3.
The 4th XI travelled to West Wickham in the AFA Cup and lost another close game 3-2.
The 5th XI returned to form with a 6-0 win against Broomfield 3rd XI.
The high flying 6th XI lost 4-2 to Ally Pally whilst in a close game only split by poor Refereeing.
The 7th XI returned to winning ways with a very good 4-0 win against Old Lyonians 5th XI.
We seem to have underperformed in cup games this year with only a couple of our lower sides being still involved and what with fewer league games has left our home ground with fewer fixtures to enjoy and stretching our finances, so if any non playing (Vice President) member has forgotten their donation this year then let this be a gentle nudge.
