Match Report

Sandy neeeded to win against bottom of the table MK Galacticos if they were to qualify for the plate semi final and finish fourth in their group.

Sandy started well against weak opposition and controlled the back line well. Matt Evans was being played on the right of midfield and was enjoying his newfound role as he crossed to find Chris Gregory at the back post, whose miscued shot fell straight to Shane Pope, but in a moment of excitement Pope dragged his left foot shot wide.

Ian Hammett then had a good chance to score as Chris Nicholls threaded him through, his first touch was good but then he clipped his left foot shot over the bar when he should of done better. Nicholls himself then had a long range effort that sailed over after Hammett had teed him up.

The game looked to be heading for a draw until the last minute when Sandy won a throw in. Matt Evans launched the ball into the box, Oli Banfield says he dummied the ball but we all know he really just missed it and it bounced kindly for Hammett who headed home at the far post to hand Sandy their first win and qualify them for the plate..... much to everyones excitement.

Man of the Match: Matt Evans.
