First league game in the promoted section, versus Knowle Tigers
A tough test which the boys handled very well and held their own against tough opposition. The game started well with some early pressure, resulting in a free kick in the edge of the penalty area which we duly converted with an excellent strike.
The game was intense for the rest of the first half and evenly matched. We got caught by a long ball over the top which pegged it back to 1-1 at the break.
The second half was very pleasing with some sustained pressure but we did lack that bit of quality in the final third.
The opposition were looking for counter attack with the long ball but we handled the threat very well and looked more likely to go on to win the game. A fair result in the end!
