Newmarket Town Res. 4, Eaton Socon res. 2

18th January 2020 :: Kershaw Senior B

In a must win game, Eaton started slowly and found themselves 3-0 down inside 20 minutes. Eaton could of found themselves 5 or 6 goals down  but for the heroics of White.

Lee Griffiths back after a 2 month absence from injury, pulled a goal back just before half time. A cross into the box found Griffiths at the far post, who beat his man and slotted home.

A reshuffle at half time saw the introduction of Aslan Hiseyin for his reserves debut. The youngster impacted the game, and coupled with a noticeable improvement from the other 9 outfield players, Eaton were now matching Newmarket in every department. So when Roberts put Fox through, and he outpaced the defence and rounded the keeper, before unselfishly squaring to Griffiths for the easiest of goals, a comeback looked possible. Eaton pushed for an equaliser, but it wasn’t to be. Newmarket played on the break and secured victory with 15 minutes to go.

A fair result, Eaton travel to CUP next week to get the season back on track.
