Eaton Socon A 1, Melbourn FC 2

23rd March 2019 :: Cambs FA County League MPG 3A

Eaton Socon started tentatively against a strong Melbourn side, moving the ball about and defending bravely. Eaton did however find their attacking feet though and midway into the first half a smart ball was played into Chamberlain who finished calmly only to be adjudged offside. Half time 0-0.

Eaton continued to defend stoutly in the second half and were unfortunate to go behind when a looping ball played in evaded the Eaton keeper who couldn’t scramble to the ball in time. 1-0 Melbourn. This was soon doubled when the Melbourn fullback went on a maze run to play the ball through for their striker to slot home in the bottom corner. Eaton did rally though and managed to make the last few minutes interesting when James Taylor found the back of the net with five minutes to go.

Final score 2-1
