Trophy match V Thame is postponed until next Tuesday 15th

Basingstoke

on Tue 5 Dec

Another absolutely epic game, this time against Southern Prem opposition, also to do it without Tomasso, Jenkinson, Carr, Bailey, Harfield unavailability through a mixture of illness and injury! What a result and we progress to the quarter finals! 

We gave a debut to 16 year old Ben Sunley and a start for 17 year old IK Hill, very pleasing especially for Ben and his development who will have learned a lot from today! First half was a fairly tight affair, I didn’t think we played great but looking at the stats we actually edged the shots and crosses, we came in 1 down. 

2nd half they got a 2nd goal and then from then on we absolutely bossed it and played some brilliant stuff, the introduction of the fit again Willo made a big difference! We got a goal back with a great bit of play from Gilly and a perfect finish, we piled on pressure and got the equaliser with a ball in from Barron finished by a mixture of Simba/Flooks/og... Gilly had a p come off and I went on, we kept going and a superb finish by Joe Cook seemed to have won it for us! Ref said 3 mins added and they scored from a Corner in 95th minute!! Fuming... their fans invading the pitch and flashing was unnecessary in what was a superb game! 

Pens came.... I had first one saved, they blazed over, sim hit the post and they blazed over again! Then some great pens by Baz, Joe H and Joe Cook, IK and Coxy! Then a brilliant save by prycey won the game! 

Fantastic result, no injuries and we were able to rest the players mentioned above ahead of a huge game now on Saturday! Well done to all the lads, incredibly proud of all of them! 

Onto the next one! Up the citizens!
