Eaton Socon res. 1, Duxford United 0
30th November 2019 :: Kershaw Senior B
Eaton returned to winning ways at River road with a hard fought win against a good footballing side in Duxford fc.
A solitary Luke Fox goal scored on 50 minutes, was enough to seal the victory. A corner from skipper Tom Hall, was met with the ample forehead of Fox, for his 1st goal of the season, ironically playing centre half. The depleted ressies already missing Albone, Blackall, Barnett, Irvine, Pyke, Coles, Martin and Boothby were dealt another blow as both Kokotka (thigh) and Vale (groin) limped off. Roberts on his debut pulled the strings in the no.10 role, while 36 year old fitness coach Rob Coles, managed to play 2 games in 18 hours, and his 3rd in 12 years, which shows the depth of the squad. The back line superbly marshalled by Kidd, with White in goal claiming only his 2nd clean sheet of the season, along with the MOM award. This coupled with the tireless work rate of Heaps and Cole up top ensured a well earned victory.
100% effort from the lads.
Hopefully more players available next week, but tis the season of the Christmas works do.
Vale (Kokokta) (Hughes)
Coles R( Kane)
