This is not a placeholder reportRob Barton
Not a placeholder report.
Unlike last week's report this isn't a placeholder ... but only just.
It's more an executive summary:
- Pre-match warmup, meeting and hand gels all round.
- Nev arriving at 3:06pm signalled the start of the game.
- Tight game, we battled throughout and played well in parts.
- Bury were organised and strong especially in the middle.
- They went ahead after scoring a goal.
- We equalised with a Dave Monck sonic boom swept home from a short.
- Half-time, they had perhaps edged the first period, but not by much.
- Wise words from James, lots of other words from everyone else, off we go again.
- They went ahead again after scoring another goal.
- The extended their lead after scoring another goal.
- Rob pulled one back reacting to a save from a JJ short-corner drag.
- They scored their fourth and the game's final goal.
- Sorry I can’t detail any of their goals, stuff in our half tends to be dull.
- We matched a decent side.
- James received a green for a committed tackle whilst on the ground.
- Josh received a green for something confusion on the far side.
- Both our greens were slightly harsh but justifiable, no complaints.
- A Bury player notched up a green card too.
- Though both sides did compete the game was really played in a nice spirit throughout.
- And actually the umpiring was solid and communications from the umpires top drawer.
- With that we have one more friendly next week against Newmarket.
- I am confident we’ll be ready for the league after that. Bring it on!
- Good luck to our Suffolk friends, see you again for another round of friendlies.
- We hope the Bury player who took a knock in the following M5s game is OK.
