Lyne F.C v Chertsey Old Salesians
All went well with our pre-match preparation for today’s encounter with Chertsey and the lads seemed to have a real buzz about them.
The match started and how wrong we were with regards to having a buzz! The lads were very flat and at points in the first half looked as if they had never met before.
Chertsey took the lead in the first half with a well struck shot from just outside the box, but the most frustrating thing was there wasn’t any sign of a block anywhere near the goal scorer
Lyne continued to be poor for the whole of the first half and quit rightly went into the half time break 1-0 down.
So for the first time this season we find ourselves in a position where we have to chase the game.
Lyne would have to up their game in the second half, so a reaction was demanded of them from the management team before they went back out.
Blimey did they do that; Jordan was unstoppable up front scoring a hatrick in just 8 minutes giving the Chertsey defence a real bad hair day.
Later in the second half Chertsey were awarded a penalty which they duly deposited in the back of the net.
Lyne wasn’t finished yet though as on the 88 minutes Adam found the back of the net on his debut for the club.
So a 4-2 win and yet another 3points on the board out of what was a bad tempered game at times.
So with the game finished the players made their way to a well-earned Xmas do in the depths of Guildford!
Robert was our guess youth player today and we very much hope he enjoyed his day with us!
The squad: James, Josh, David, Ashley, Jerome, Jake, Luke, Felipe ©, Fudge, Ryan E, Jordan, Ollie, Stuart, Adam, Bondy.
Star Man: Jordan (Top draw second half)
Next week we are away to Holmbury St Mary’s who are one of our closest contenders.
