Mike SaundersA disappointing exit from the Cheshire Cup at the hands of The Brow in a game where we seemed to have most of the play but ended up losing the tie because of not putting the ball away when the chances came begging. I’ll keep this short because I don’t want to write about a Cheshire Cup defeat and try and fathom any reasons as to why we got beat and I don’t think we can gain any laughs from reporting in the usual style.

That said, If anyone thinks that they had a decent game please make themselves known and if anyone wants to point the finger (management excluded) please point because you would get fingers pointed back at you.

As stated, we seemed on top for large periods but conceded goals at the wrong times. Off the top of my head I think they scored early ( first 10 mins ), then added another on the stroke of half-time and it’s looking like ‘ White Cliffs’ at the break. We’ve missed chances….Reay Man….Saunders….Reay Man again. They missed a peno and that seemed to gee us up a bit and Hammond nets one himself near the end and we’re in with half a chance. Lack of discipline crept in towards the end or should I say frustration crept in and we concede a late penalty to end our hopes for another year.
