DURRINGTON DYNAMOS 1-3 SOUTH NEWTON AND WISHFORD FC
We had our 1st match of the new season away against Durrington on Sunday.
This was a team we had previously beaten last season 2-0 away, 3-1 and 7-2 at home in the league so we looking for a good performance which would kick start our new season.
From the kick off we put them under pressure and after about 1 min we broke through their defence but were unable to score. We then had our second chance at scoring but failed to find the back of the net after some great team build up play.
As the half went on we got much stronger but were still finding it hard to break down their defence.
Durrington then had their first attack of the game which we cleared the ball easily and with some great passing the ball fell to centre forward Gregory Moss who played it to the feet of Scott Blake who shot just wide.
We still carried on dominating and a loose ball was played through to Greg Moss who out muscled the two defenders and slotted it past the keeper to make it 1-0.
Lots of chances then fell to us but we failed to capitalise, then 5 mins before half time we were awarded a free kick just outside the area, Aiden compton then drilled it into the bottom corner to make it 2-0 at half time.
We came out after the interval with great determination as the lads knew with a little more pressure they would get all three points from the game and win by a greater margin.
As the game went on we were gaining more and more possession, Aiden Compton then picked the ball up from outside the penalty area and was fouled just outside the box, he picked himself up and shot at goal hitting the crossbar with a superb free kick but having thought it had crossed the line it was not given by the home referee!
From then on it was all South Newton as the Durrington heads dropped, but a lack of concentration for only a few seconds and the Durrington forward who never gave up on chasing the ball had a scuffed shot at goal which wrong footed our keeper and made it 1-2.
We then came to life again and within 2 minutes a shot by Aiden Compton crept over the line to make it 1-3.
Man of the match this week was Liam Randall who had an excellent game in defence, which certainly helped us to dominate the game. Well, done Liam from the team, supporters and management.
We would also like to point out how well the whole team played today seeing as there were some new faces in the team and it was the first time they had all played together.
Our training sessions will take place on a Friday evening (light nights only) then on Saturday mornings when the clocks change in October with the games on a Sunday morning.
