VERY GOOD

Churches Together with their new look squad came out of the blocks like a rocket with a high tempo that took Eden’s a little by surprise but Eden’s soon responded and it was frenetic end to end stuff.


Eden’s quality started to tell and they enjoyed more and more of the possession. They thought they had broken the deadlock, only for the goal to be ruled out. Apparently the ball had gone out of play during the build up. This wasn’t the only contested decision in what remained a good natured match. A second Eden’s goal was ruled out over a hand ball vs ball to hand disagreement. Eden’s were beginning to wonder what they needed  to do to score!


More controversy followed after Eden’s were awarded a penalty. Defender Jody Tan replaced Churches regular keeper to make a tremendous save from Adam Green’s spot kick. The shot however defelected opwards into the arms of regular keeper Rob Aitken who returned to resume his place in goal ahead of an advancing Eden’s player. I’m not sure Fellowship Football has ever had a penalty saved by two  goalkeepers before!


The result of the game was never in doubt due to Eden’s solid defensive trio of Tom Elford and Sean Bruce with Thomas Drayton securing another clean sheet. Eden’s striker Josh Collins had a terrific battle with Churches defender Jody Tan  and  was rewarded with two goals. Stuart Ayling and Charlie Elford added yje others to claim all 3 points for the Blue’s and move them up to 2nd place in the table. Despite the controversy, this was an enjoyable game of football.


 It looks as though its going to be a tight league this season.
