Men’s 3rd XI Match Report

Fleet v Trojans


M3s finished the season with our best performance and our best result winning 5-0 against Trojans 6s. We got our passing game together right from the start moving the ball into space and onto sticks better than we have all season and after a couple of early scares we went ahead through a deft Dave Smith deflection from a shot from the top of the D. We soon doubled our lead when Edward Peet scored from our best move of the match with the ball being passed out from the back through the midfield, and out to the right wing where the cross found Ed unmarked on the far post to put the ball into an empty net.

There was no further score in the first half as James EdwardsDave Houston and Dan White snuffed out all the Trojans attacks and Matthew Pryor was equal to anything that got past them.

The second half started with Trojans re-jigging their line up and posing more threat than in the first half with most of our chances coming on the break with Olly Van KlaverenPhil Hutson and Thomas Hutson linking up well in midfield releasing Dave and Ben Wright up front and it was no surprise when Dave added to his tally not once, not twice but three times.

The win gives us our best points tally for a number of seasons, and our most wins and much to look forward to next season.

MoM – Dave for his four timer . . . although Olly ran him close for his tireless play in midfield as did Thomas who played his best game in a 3s shirt.
DoD – el Presidente, Rob Scott for playing football rather than hockey with the goal at his mercy (although if we’d remembered some of Phil’s serial misdemeanours sooner he might well have stolen the vote !!).
