Match Report: Southgate Pitchers vs SAHC 3

Last week we visited Southgate Pitchers who are a strong side that are 2nd in the division and beat us 3-0 early in the season.

Unfortunately we quickly went down to an early goal. Despite this setback we settled down quickly, Steve Biggins playing sweeper again showed what a strong tackler he is, with such a powerful attack he had to be. Billy to his right played effectively while Mark Smith had an outstanding game at centre back not only showing enormous energy but also some nice dribbling moves in midfield.

Despite our best efforts the opposition managed two more goals before half time, but this was not a bad score given the strength of the opposition. After the interval we not only maintained our shape at he back but we also moved forward with more speed and precision. Jan-Willem managed a couple of difficult crosses from the left. Kiran made some tackles and passes on the right while Mark Vargeson popped up all over the place tackling and passing.

The opposition did make several attempts on goal but Dean was in superb form making two dramatic individual saves, notably from a short corner.

Next week we play bottom of the league Stevenage, so no excuse not to win!
