Rascals win 2-0 at Wallingford

Rascals play well and notch up their first league win of season

The Rascals notched up their first league win of the season after an excellent first half display which saw them take a 2-0 lead into half time. The team consisted of 6 U16/U14 colts and 4 older outfield players who all combined well and were unlucky not to extend their lead further. At the other end, man of the match Steve Thurlbourne who was playing in goal for the first time this year, made some key saves to give the Rascals their first clean sheet of the season. Solid defensive performances from Duncan Bond, Kelly Andrews and Nathan Warwick also contributed to this and gave the rest of the team the platform to launch waves of attacks. Thanks to Barry Jukes for being prepared to travel at very short notice and John Sayer for organising the team and giving it some structure and direction.

Team: Thurlbourne (GK), Andrews, Bond, Warwick N, Reed M, Hudson N, Hudson D, Perkin, Sayer O, Thompson O, Jukes B, Warwick P..

Next week's game is home against Sonning 5, 16:00 on SLS.
