With weather better suited to cricket the 2nd’s started their season away to Shoreham. The opposition started brightly and put us under a lot of early pressure however the boys grew into the game and the first half became a very even affair. Unfortunately a mad couple of minutes saw us concede 2 unnecessary goals. A 2–0 score line at the break certainly did not reflect the game.

We fought hard in the second half and with some really good football managed to open our account through Kai and get back into the game. Once again all the hard work was thrown away in another 2 minute phase as we gave away another 2 goals which was how the game finished.

I cannot fault the effort from the boys and they certainly deserved a draw however, our few mistakes were severely punished on this occasion.

Team: Austin, Will, Ben, Freddie, Luca, Jacob, Charlie, Sam D, Joseph, Kai and Sam S.

Certainly something to build on.
