League - AFC Urmston Meadowside Eagles v NJ Wythenshawe

Sun 30th Oct 2011 - KO 10:30am

Weather Sunny, and quite warm

Subs: Clevon, Tyler (welcome back Tyler!)
Injured: Travis

We played a pre-season friendly against NJW so we had an idea of what to expect today. Jack is sunning himself in Cuba! And Travis is injured, get well soon. With the club house official opening completed on Friday, it would be nice to christen Lees Field with a win. Let's see how it goes.

First Half:
It was Eagles all the way from the start, with NJW breaking on attack when they could but our defence mopped any thing up they could throw at us. 10 minutes in saw some lovely football by Eagles, the ball crossed in to Dom in the box who tried shooting which was blocked but he made sure on his second attempt slotting it past the keeper. 1-0. 5 minutes or so after this, Lincoln scored Eagles 2nd goal after some really nice pass and move football in the lead up, 2-0. NJW attacked rarely in this half and Eagles just kept possession and shot when they had a chance. Eagles had 10 chances on goal and NJW had 2 chances on goal. Shots from Dom, Lincoln, Chris, Eddie and Adam. The half time whistle blew at 2-0 and the next goal should decide how this game will end.

Second Half:
Eagles made a few changes, and it was not long into this half when Conor broke passed the NJW defence to score Eagles 3rd goal, nice finish! 3-0. NJW at this point started to get back into the game and scored what was to be a consolation goal, it was a nicely lobbed ball which beat our keeper and dipped under the crossbar, our keeper said he was caught flat footed! After this warning call, Eagles stepped it up and in came the shots. It was not long before Eddie scored a cracker of a goal making it 4-1. NJW had a couple of attacking runs which came to nothing and then Eagles started mopping everything up and trying to get their 5th goal. It came from Tyler, playing in midfield, striking the ball very well, the NJW keeper got a hand to it but the ball had too much power and it went in the back of the net! 5-1. NJW's heads were down by now and all credit to them, kept trying to break through Eagles defence and get one back, but it was to no avail. Shots on goal for Eagles, 8 (Conor, Adam, Eddie, Clevon and Tyler) and for NJW 4 chances on goal. The final whistle blew at 5-1.

Eagles played some really lovely football today, but we were allowed to do so. Unlike some teams who close every player and pass down, NJW sat back and showed us far too much respect in my opinion. All across the Eagles team there were some great performances and some superb performances. This was a well deserved 3 points and a reasonable goal difference that will help hold our heads high for a while. Keep up the performances like this and keep up the same 'must win' attitude shown from today and we should do well.

Result: 5-1 smile

Goal Scorers: Dom, Lincoln, Conor, Eddie, Tyler
