The team arrived promptly at 1pm as a result of the stern words given by skipper Huss the previous week. We were out on the field by 1.20 for a thorough warm up.

The game kicked off at 2 with the team already warm and rearing to go and get a dub. The football was immaculate but the finishing was not clinical. As a result, the opposition took a very fortunate 1-0 lead after several deflections saw the ball hit the back of our net. 10 minutes later throw in taken by Lemsford into our box and penalty given for a soft push in the back by Amuz. However fortunately for sj penalty was skied. With Stanmore creating many chances we ended the half strongly.
