Match Report

1’s travel over the bridge on a windy, cold November Saturday. It started with watching Parsons figure out the ticket machine of the car park with needing help from the attendant! This did lead to him then getting fined for being late and getting help. Anyway, onto the Hockey. Rugg’s team started to realise quite quickly that passing had to be a lot harder and faster and to talk to each other we had to shout. Which was a bonus in passes were getting strung together quite nicely. A few efforts from the other team was stopped in there tracks by the defence made up of unders,Harry,Liam and ruggy. The other team lost there heads with there umpire and they started with a lot of stick tackles. This was throughout the whole game with stick tackles being a big part with one of there players FINALLY being carded for it!! Halfway through the 1st half CB unders gets his surprising turn upfront after impressing many players with his shot power. This did give him an opportunity which he narrowly put wide off the post, Spayne did score to give the visitors a little 1-0 advantage going into the break, with south glos knowing they could do better, with Cardiff met having little to no quality upfront we continued to pass around and get up to the other end, a few shorts from Cardiff met were neatly kept out by the defence and gk. South glos worked the ball round the midfield with tremendous care and attention which was beautiful to see. Being only a goal up and 10 mins to play Cardiff wanted to try and build a comeback but this was briefly stopped by Steve Payne 🇪🇸 who as he already did once this game, he slots it in. A good 2-0 win for the visiting side which had a few played missing and knew a win was needed. Would of been nice to have some tea when back at the pub but only crisps on offer 🙁🤨 DOD was again awarded to Ollie and MOM to skillful central midfielder Dawson. South glos have now got a home game against Whitchurch which will be a tough game. See you next week 👋🏼
