Back to winning ways!!
After having a good few week’s playing against higher level opposition it was nice to settle down and play against opponents that we will be playing in the League next season.
After a brief chat with the referee it was decided that we played 3x30miniute quarters to allow the players and referee to remain hydrated on an extremely hot day at Dunsfold.
The sounds come booming from the Lyne changing room, warm-up done and we are good to go!
The match started pretty even but Lyne Bossed the possession on every level, although for some reason Lyne lacked the cutting edge in the final third that they required.
The opening come from Lyne from a set play, which to be honest looked the only way we was going to score at the time.
Great delivery from the corner, met sweetly by Justin on the far post!
The second third Lyne was undone by a sucker punch from long range effort which found its way into the back of the net and totally against the run of play, but one of them we will learn from going forward.
Dunsfold had some good opportunities in this third only to be thwarted by some superb goalkeeping by James in the sticks for Lyne.
Score at end of second third 1-1
As we entered the final third it was all about reaping the rewards of all the hard work for 60 mins and on ramping up the pressure on a worn out Dunsfold side!
The players reacted as expected with Jordan being hooked down in the box, giving Felipe the spot kick!
Jordan driving into the box in and finishing in true break dance fashion! Lol
Ryan going on for ever it seemed from a wide position to slot a well taken individual goal.
And Jordan once again with a clinical finish in the dying minutes.
Final Score 5-1
It’s odd to be honest to give the man of the match to James in goal when you have just achieved a 5-1 victory, but James is well deserved of his accolade for some outstanding goalkeeping.
With some 17 players involved today, things are looking very bright to Lyne F.C.
And lastly, it not very often after the final whistle an opponent comment on match by saying ‘ I haven’t played against a team as good as that in years’
The squad today: James Kendall (GK), Oat Suwan, Ryan Esprit, Justin Fanneran (1), Jerome Paul, Luke Martin, Stuart Fuller, Felipe Lima © (1), Jake Hambleton, Jordan Wain, Jordan Esprit (2), Ben Stickley, Ryan Ayres, Luca Wood, Hiten Pankhania, Oliver Rusborough and Matt Barado.
Without exception, all 17 players today worked hard and contributed in todays well-earned victory over Dunsfold.
Well done lads very very pleased.
Lyne F.C management team.
A massive thank you goes out to Dunsfold F.C, who made us feel very welcome and to the referee who we feel done a great job in the middle.
