Duxford United Res 4, Eaton Socon A 2

27th February 2016 :: Cambs FA County League MPG 3A

Eaton Socon had a terrible day at the office this Saturday, in fact the worst under the reign of Simon O'Connor and assistant Dean Foster.

Eaton Socon begun the game very slowly but in the 15th minute they started to find their passing ability and when Eaton Socon get going they are very difficult sometimes impossible to defend against. Eaton Socon complete control of the game and had had their first chance when a good triangle passing move between Simon Beever, Glen Grimes and Troy Beavis led to Glen Grimes shooting just wide of the target. The next big chance arrived five minutes later when great work and running by Asa Johnson and a superb lofted cross found the head of Fabio Gomes who unfortunately couldn't convert.

Eaton Socon kept trying to find their rhythm and were awarded with what can only be described as a solo wonder effort from Glen Grimes when he beat his marker and hit a thunderous strike from 30 yards which found the top corner. Eaton Socon went into the half time the lead by 1-0.

The second half began and unfortunately Eaton Socon stopped in what was to be the worst half of football in the Eaton Socon lads season. Duxford found themselves level when a needless free kick was given away outside the box to which the Eaton Socon goalkeeper stood still and watched the ball hit the back of the net.

Duxford firmly found their tails wagging with Eaton Socon looking very edgy. Duxford found themselves a deserved second when the striker was aloud rime to turn in the box and slot home. Duxford then got a third when a cross ed ball was not dealt with at all and keeper Canham slipped at a vital time, leaving the Duxford midfielder with an easy tap in to go 3-1 up.

Eaton Socon tried to get themselves back in the game and didn't give up but the game was all but over as Eaton failed to play to the whistle and the Duxford striker ran through and slotted home to make it look embarrassing for Eaton Socon.

To Eaton Socon's credit they went again and rallied themselves and won a penalty that was put away by Damian Chamberlain. The whistle blew for full time on a very poor day for the Eaton Socon lads.
