FRIMLEY GREEN v HVFC

Tuesday 13th Octoberber 2020 @ 7.45 pm
Combined Counties FL – Premier Division

A wet night under the lights, a perfect evening for football, and what a tough game it was.

Frimley underwent late managerial changes during the close season and this lead to a difficult start of the season for them. An early run of heavy defeats has been turned into good displays, and results, recently and we found out first hand what a difficult side than can be to play against.

We started the game on top and created a number of chances, including hitting the woodwork and forcing the keeper into a number of saves. Frimley aren’t the side to roll over though and they looked to hit us on the counter attack

In the 16th minute “The Frimmers” took the lead. Their tricky winger twice beat Bryant before knocking in a cross which was met by debutant Reece Connolly who volleyed the ball down into the ground and into the net. 1 nil and they werent going to make life easy.

With the clock running down to half time one of our attacks finally produced a goal. Sam Merson cutting the ball back for Elliott Simpson to drive into the bottom corner. Relived to go into the break level.

The second half followed the pattern of the first, us doing all the attacking and the home side digging in stubbonly and playing on the break, but with 10 to go they finally cracked. Once again Sam Merson was involved, this time beating the full back and cutting the ball back to Bruno Tingle who calmly slotted home the winner.

Hard won victory against a hard working side, Very satisfying.
