Eaton Socon 1 Gamlingay 1
As predicted this was always going to be a tough game and it certainly was that with both sides giving it their all in a cracking game .. Both sides started brightly and the first real effort on goal fell to Kennedy who shot wide for Gamgy.. Eaton The had their best chance of the first half when Morris latched on to a Bassett pass but Cowell stood firm and made two good saves .. Wilks had the next chance but a block by Bonham thwarted that chance .. and when Fox pulled a shot wide it looked as though Eaton were making hard work of getting that crucial goal.. half time and the game was level and Gamgy started to play the waiting game .. waiting for Eaton to get bodies forward and then hitting them on the break .. and in 58 minutes that ploy reaped success when Eaton were caught with too many bodies up the pitch and Gamgy broke and took the lead .. Eaton tried to battle back in but Gamgy's defence was firm and Gamgy should have taken the lead but the forward sold Wale the wrong way but blasted wide .. Kennedy should have scored as well but his shot hit his own player on the line and they ball went over .. on 70 minutes Eaton drew level .. good work from Shepherd found Fox who fizzed a ball across the box and Bassett slid home from close range .. it then became end to end with both sides going for it .. Whittingham had a header saved by Cowell and Cowell betters that save with a worldy from a Fox header moments later .. Churms then brought a great save from Wale .. but Gamgy could have won the game when substitute Walker fired wide in the final minutes .. so a point a piece was probably fair .. but it was a great game..
The Ressies In their first game after Xmas travelled to bottom of the league Manea Utd .. Sammy wanted a good performance to prepare for the next 6 weeks where they have some tough games .. playing bottom club Manea Eaton started sloppy and were running off the Xmas pudding ....Eaton got one up through Griffiths .. but then it got the worse Manea when they had a man sent off for a double head butt, but he should of gone for the tackle alone.. Eaton then took advantage and went in at half time 6-0 up.
The second half was sloppy and the boys only added 3 more scorers .. Griffiths scored a hat trick and was MOM .. Ward, Stockwell, Kidd, Gooch and Coles with his yearly Manea goal scored the others..
Though going 1-0 up against Cardea in the Hunts Cup the A team were well beaten 4-1 .. Holliday with the goal.. more to follow on that game ..
