Burridge Sports 3 v 0 Burridge AFC
Saturday 10th September
Burridge endured defeat in a game that offered the optimist little to cling too. Any signs of creativity were too often betrayed by an impatience that assumed the ball was unhappy to remain on the grass but instead be sent ambiguously skywards. (Picture: Dean Wall looks to turn his man)
At the other end their opponents exposed Burridge's consistent difficulty to defend crosses; if it were not for inept finishing and heroic goalkeeping the scoreline would have been worse still.
The third goal bought with it the inevitable air of resignation that was underlined by Burridge's failure to satisfy any curiosity of the opposition
goalkeeper's ability; who was redundant for the majority of the contest only facing a single shot.
3-5-2: Dave Hopkins, Paul Andrews, Greg Baker, Kristian Hewitt, (Mike Hogg), Jay Schwodler, Luke Sanderson, Paul Dyke, Rich Allan, Ross Bryant, Lee Wood, Dean Wall.
Cadnam 3-3 North Baddesley
Malvern 2-3 Comrades Res
Survey Res 1-5 Solent
Priory 0-3 Capital
Spartans 2-1 Academicals
