Match Report Fawley vs Verwood Town 01-May-18
SYDENHAMS LEAGUE (WESSEX) DIVISION ONE
SATURDAY 1st MAY 2018
FAWLEY 4 VERWOOD TOWN 1
A Fawley goal in the first minute created an uphill struggle we never conquered.
We staged a token rally with midfield winning individual battles but we needed more than the G force to trouble the home team.
Kicking Off :- Haigh Gilham Watkins Manley Browning Dyer Tabor Anderton Gale Guthrie Jaco.
Waiting :- Oxtoby Robinson
Guthrie and Gale provided hope of pulling a goal back but a couple of corners were well policed by Fawley keeping them in front
33 minutes and Fawley went 0-2 ahead with a simple strike.
We had to defend an onslaught and managed to prevent any further goals to half time.
Half Time 0-2
In the second half we didn't have enough in the locker to give any trouble to Fawley and capitulated. Two more goals completed Fawley's input and had it not been for a Haigh double save from a penalty it could have been a nap hand.
Guthrie scored a stunner to give the score line a more respectable appearance but naiviety cost us dearly.
