06-10-19 A League Ducklington 3 v 1 BAMPTON

Bampton 1 - 3 Ducklington

Really good game today with both teams playing proper, passing football.

We controlled most of the first half and were the better team.We played our positions well and pressed opposition in their own third.They struggled to make much inways into our half and when they did, we had players in position to cope with all they had..

They came stronger in last 10 minutes of first half but 0 - 0 at half time was just about a fair result. .

Second half saw the wind pick up, with a goal blowing over, it was so strong at times.Oppostion used this to their advantage with two quick goals where high balls made it difficult for our defenders to clear their lines.We were still playing nice football and deservedly got one back with some great link up play through midfield and attack.Alfie getting a fine goal..

The wind was still making it easy for opposition to get ball forward and a late goal gave a flattering score line in their favour. .

We played some really nice stuff today, especially in first half.Ducklington are a very strong team and we more than held our own against them.

We shall continue to do what we do, play exciting, attacking football, our wing backs getting forward, three up front, looking to outplay opposition.

Today felt, both by myself and the boys, a bit frustrated, as we know we outplayed a very strong team for most of the game.

Man of the Match

Toby Hickman

He plays right back so well.Excellent in defence when required to win the ball but confident and assured when coming forward.Great game today Toby.
