So for the first time in 3/4 years the men's 1st team have been entered into a cup. After all why not? We have a great squad, with a mix of youth and experience, and there's the chance of going far and getting yourself a game at the Olympic Park.
So to the game...against a North (rather than our usual West) Wilts team wanting to take their place in the 2nd round. 5 wins would get us to the final.
They are a couple of leagues below us, but that didn't stop them from putting on strong pressure. We started well enough again by taking an early lead before being pinned back before half-time, to 3-2 up.
The half-time message....keep creating chances, but we've got to stop giving away easy chances to the opposition who were happy to sit back and counter-attack. It seemed to do the trick and we took complete control of the game.
Goals came from 6 different players and we won 11-3 but full time. A good win and plenty to work on still. Bring on round 2, to be played 29 November 2015.
Goals: Tom Bryant (3), Harry Bryant (3), Justin Metcalfe (2), Matt Sullivan, Christian Elvidge, Ed Ledger
Man of the Match: Harry Bryant
Dick of the Day: Matt Sullivan (should never miss from a yard)
