New Inn 2
3rds started with intent and took an early lead against New Inn 2, after good pressure up front made the keeper fluff his clearance straight to Wilf, who gladly slotted it home. Unfortunately our lead didn’t last long and they came back quickly to score an equaliser. Chances came thick and fast either side of the pitch in an end to end first half, but it stayed 1-1 until the break. They came out stronger in the second half and took a 2 goal lead, at least one of which was somewhat fortunate to be called onside and the other almost pushed wide with a finger tip save by Valentin, only to see it go in off the inside of the post. Despite a spirited comeback, we could only claw one goal back: an incisive break down the left wing and good link up play ended in Rodrigo putting Tim through 1-on-1 to slot past the onrushing keeper. Final score 3-2 in a close game where we could well have got a point but go home (to the Funky) with none. Consistency of performances is getting better so these close games will hopefully start going our way soon, keep it up lads!
