Brian Buck Travellers Tales calls in at Sandy FC pre-season

The following was written by Brian Buck for the Bedfordshire Football League Report Bulletin for the 2012/13 season. It gives a good endorsement of a Sandy 1st Team pre season performance.

41st game of the season. (Match 10,519) Thursday 16th August 2012. Sandy 2 Arlesey Town Reserves 1 (Friendly Match) att 30 approx.

Usually when I turn up at Bedford Road to watch Sandy play it’s the same old story.Bags of enthusiasm, a lot of it off the pitch, before the game starts, then sometimes Sandy play well, even taking the lead. But then by the end of the match the wheels come off and they lose. When I got home from this match I checked my records and since the start of the 2002/3 season, I’d seen Sandy play here 14 times before the start of this match, recording just three victories. So tonight it was refreshing to see everything in tact from start to finish. The team was up for it throughout and they played really well and for each other. I’d seen a stronger Arlesey Town reserve side beat their counterparts from Potton United 2-0 on the previous Thursday but tonight they fielded a younger side. Play was fairly even at the start and when Sandy opened the scoring on 19 minutes it was a reward for the effort they had put in. The keeper thought that the scorer was going to pass, rather than shoot for goal from a narrow angle. He had done well to avoid the uncollected grass cuttings on this side of the pitch. After this Arlesey had a good spell but Sandy finished to half strongly. In this 40 minutes each way match, because the players weren’t ready on time, Sandy added a second goal on 43 minutes and from there in the Arlesey challenge slowly faded, although they did rustle up enough energy to grab a consolation goal on 78 minutes. On this performance tonight Sandy should do well
