Royal Holloway Old Boys V Lyne F.C
Well, here we go again on Lyne F.C’s voyage through the different divisions in the Surrey area.
This time it’s Royal Holloway Old Boys from the Surrey Intermediate division.
Going on our preview of the match it was set up to be a game of football rather than the lump it and bump it stuff and it didn’t fail to deliver.
Some of the football played by both sides was a pleasure to watch and from the independent on the side lines must have thought he was quid’s in not having to pay!
Right from the off both teams playing on the deck for best part looking for a way of breaking their opponents down, that breakthrough came for Lyne in the first half with a well delivered ball from Josh, which was headed down and towards the net by Jordan for a well taken goal.
- 1-0 Lyne
The first half concluded pretty even but the score line remained the same.
- 1-0 Lyne
The second was much of the same, with both teams looking to play but Lyne looked a little leggy for various reasons. (Felipe LOL)
Lyne made it 2-0 in the second half from a well delivered through ball from Felipe onto Josh with a driving run which was slotted past the RHOB keeper.
Injuries by this time was mounting for Lyne, with Kai, Kitz and Oat all being side-lined for various reasons.
The pressure was starting to be put on by RHOB and it was rewarded by a free header in the box.
Lyne played out the remaining minutes and the final whistle was blown for another victory on the road for Lyne.
FT 2-1 Lyne
Our thanks go out to Royal Holloway for their welcome and we would like to wish them every success this season on many levels, but most of all for playing football the right way!!
