Match Report

Sandy went into this game knowing anything less than a win would mean real danger in their bid to avoid relegation, and after an excellent performance they came away with a fantastic three points that could prove the difference over the remainder of the season. 


The first half remained a tight well-fought game throughout with chances sparse. Flitwick’s Ben Wallington managed to create himself a couple of shooting opportunities with some good turns but then dragged his shots wide of the post. For Sandy, skilful forward Alex Baker got in behind the Flitwick defence a few times only to find that they recovered quickly getting back to snuff out any shots. However, on the half hour Baker did manage to twist and turn himself into space only to have his shot saved well by the keeper. Half time 0-0.


The second half saw more of the same with both sides creating few opportunities. Steve Jakes found himself in space on the left of the penalty box only to put his shot over the bar. A moment of calmness for Sandy’s number 1 Darren Wheatley but worry for everyone else came 70 minutes into the game when one-on-one he skilfully took the ball round Flitwick’s fast closing striker before claering upfield.


The lone goal of the game came 12 minutes from time for Sandy as Craig Baker played the ball forward, cleverly Mark Jennings stepped over the pass allowing Jamie ‘Shorty’ Scotcher to latch onto it. Shorty struck the ball well which with the aid of a big deflection off a Flitwick defender looped over the keeper into the top left corner.

Sandy then held on well in the remaining minutes to ensure Flitwick had no way back into the game
