|Result||D 6 - 6|
|Time played||Normal time|
The 2nds went into their first league game away against Lichfield 4ths with somewhat of a skeleton side but, in good spirit after convincingly beating Market Drayton (last years league winners) in a friendly two weeks prior.
Lichfield we knew would be a very strong side with some very experienced players in their squad and they didn’t disappoint. Early on in the game a bit of a mistake in Lichfield’s D lead to an own goal with Aaran taking the credit. A flurry of goals came in relative quick succession from Sean x2, Louis x1 and Pete x1 with only 2 being scored by Lichfield. We went into the second half confident of scoring more but, Lichfield had other ideas and started very strong winning a number of short corners which they converted and we were soon at 5-4, another goal from Swashy took us to six but Lichfield won some more shorts and we were level pegging. In the dying minutes we did put Lichfield on the back foot but sadly couldn’t get the ball across the line to take a win. It was a solid performance with a lot of positives to build from in the season ahead and a point on the scoreboard. Andy Jones was awarded MOM for his sterling effort in goal making some cracking saves and also taking one for the team!!!
