Hythe & Dibden 3-8 Winchester City

Moneyfields 0-2 Winchester City

on Mon 27 Aug

What a fantastic performance from the group today, so pleased and proud of all of them. There is no doubting moneyfields are a decent side, will be up there at end of season, had also been lifted by the signings of Dan Wooden who is a class act and Barcelos from Didcot who was one of league top scorers last year, they are a good side, so to perform like that and get a great 2-0 is first class and I couldn’t be happier with the lads.

We made one change from Saturday with Sam Roberts taking a breather and Connor going back into the centre and Hayward back in at right back. Game started with us against the wind and we had to withstand 20 minutes or so of pressure, we did that though and eventually got our game going a bit and really from that point on it was mainly us, Baz scored with a great finish after a lovely build up and lay off from Oli, we came in 1-0 at the break. 

2nd half to be honest was nearly all us and they had their keeper to thank for countless saves to kill the game off, as is always the case though they threw 5/6 up by the end and we had to be big and strong to deal with that, then we broke after a fine clearance from Robbo who had come on and Oli latched on and finished superbly to seal it, a great 3 points.

Delighted with the whole group and to not give away a single shot on target shows how well we defended as a group, we also played some good stuff going forwards.

Well done boys, been a tough start to the season in terms of schedule, lot of achy bodies in the dressing room, we have to patch up now and get ready for another tough battle with Melksham at home next weekend! 

One final word of thanks to the supporters today who were on another level!!! Love that!! 

Up the citizens!
