POST MATCH REPORT | AL3s - R4 vs AUGUSTINES B at PASSMORE 2 at 1PM (AWAY GAME)


Off the back of the exciting game of the week before, the AL3s boys turned up to our 3rd game of the season in high spirits. We played St Augustine’s B at their home ground down at Passmore. A few big players had returned and early signs were positive as we had the run of the play early on. We had a couple of significant chances however as has been the theme so far this season we lacked the finishing touch to go ahead. A lucky goal from the Augustine’s team off a deflected header from a long throw shifted the momentum slightly back in their favour, and they went on to make it 2-0 after a slightly contentious goal stood from a cross where the ball appeared to be out slid through the defenders and across to the back post where it was tapped in.

The skipper James Trickey provided a huge boost for the lads when he smashed in a great free kick from 30+ yards out. It was 2-1 at half time and we had wrestled back the momentum. A formation change at half time boosted the attacking go forward and again we had a few chances but couldn’t put them away. St Augs scored once more with only 10 minutes to go after some nice play caught us out on the counter-attack, making it 3-1. Despite our efforts there was to be no thriller this week. Big shout-out has to go to Jordan in goals who saved us multiple times.
