Match Report


A six pointer versus Shefford for Sandy today and Sandy only had eleven players for the match. Barker was playing in goal today and Tony used the 4-4-2 formation for the game.

The game kicked off and both teams were trying to get forward but it was Shefford who were getting the ball into the box the most in the opening ten minutes. But Shefford took the lead when a long throw into the box was headed on and the unmarked Shefford right mid smashed the ball in. Sandy started to get forward more with good play from Jonnie,Gregory,Webby and Dora but not many shots were testing the goalkeeper. As Sandy tried to get the ball out of their half and loose ball bounced to an opposing player and Dora tackled with studs showing which resulted in a yellow card. The free kick was taken and after some battling in the box the ball was bundled in to make it 2-0. Sandy started playing a lot better after conceding and more attacks were produced with Tester playing some good long balls for Jonnie.

At the start of the second half Sandy lost Rogan due to a neck injury which was sustained in the first half. Gregory dropped into centre back and Jonnie went into centre midfield. Unfairly Shefford were awarded a free kick on the edge of the box even though Gregory won the ball in the tackle but the ref thought otherwise. The free kick went straight in via the post making it 3-0. Sandy hit back straight away when Webby played through Ant who shot and the goalkeeper helped the ball into the net. Then again Sandy attacked with Jonnie and Baines linking up,then Ant crossed the ball in,Dora headed it back across on to Webby's head then on to Baines who nodded home. 3-2 with Sandy having all the momentum and continued to attack. But Shefford scored a 4th when their winger turned Gipson and scored with ease. The second half was better than the first for Sandy and man of the match went to Dora after continuous hard work and good communication.
