Maidstone United Rangers

On a bright evening for the first of our mid-week fixtures we had a good squad size and were ready for todays opponents of Maidstone United Rangers.

We started at a good pace with some crisp passing football, giving Maidstone no time to settle on the ball. We knew they were a strong side but we held strong in the middle and MUR struggled to get past our mid-field.

We took an early lead after just 6 minutes when Fred struck the ball with a good header from a corner, giving us a (1 -0) lead.

We continued to play well and used each other, passing and moving the ball into space using the whole pitch, frustrating MUR. Just before half time we scored a well deserved second goal, making the half time score (2 - 0).

 

Half time talk was about preparing ourselves for what we knew MUR were capable of, changing our formation to try to disrupt MUR rythmn.

 

As expected MUR started very quickly in the second half and put us under some considerable pressure for the first 15 minutes, of which we soaked up well. After 18 minutes MUR managed to score, bringing the score closer at (2 - 1). This focused our game and we picked up the pace once again. Within a few minutes we had restored our 2 goal lead after some great football, as Tom W slid the ball past their keeper into the back of the net (3 -1). After this we had a couple more opportunities, with MUR goalie making some good saves, but we were unable to increase the score before the final whistle went making the final score (3 - 1).

 

MOM: Chris for a great performance and some fantastic tackles.

 

Thanks to Simon for running the line (under some considerable pressure) and to parents for getting the boys to a game at short notice.

 

Managers Note: A great performance (possibly your seasons best - SO FAR) I'm sure all our spectators would agree.

You all showed great maturity in your composure.
