Match Report

After a busy few months, this is the first match report for a while.

Sandy came back from their christmas dinners, eager to get back to winning ways after some poor results and loss of points due to teams folding, which has not been ideal in terms of where they wanted to be in the league table.

The sun was shining and Sandy won the toss which was the first of many key battles. Sandy started off very positive and everything was going well, moving the ball around well and putting Shefford under pressure from all angles. Anytime Shefford found themselves on the ball they were hassled and harried and this enabled Sandy to take advantage of every misplaced pass and interception as this generally occurred within Sheffords own half. This allowed Sandy to dominate the possesion of the ball and they were pulling the Shefford defence out of place on numerous occassions.

The first goal came after 10 minutes, the ball was played wide down the left and crossed into the box by McGhee who had Johnnie waiting for it at the back post. The ball evaded the goalkeeper and Jonnie wasn't marked tightly enough by the Shefford defender and he was able to take it down on his knee and volleyed it past the goalkeeper. 1-0.

Sandy were all over Shefford and they couldn't get out of their own half. The defence was getting rid of everything relatively early just on the half way line and this led to a wave of attacks. 


It was a game full of wonder goals and some contenders for goal of the season. Update coming soon...
