Burridge 2 - 2 Survey

Saturday 28th January 2006
Venue: Osborne Road, Warsash

With both Dave Hopkins and Kristian Hewitt unable to play, Burridge turned to Ben Wilson to play as goalkeeper. He repaid their faith with some important saves, particularly in the first half when he blocked from point blank range. Despite this Survey went a goal up, but within minutes Paul Andrews was put through on goal, and he side footed the equaliser.

This game had all the ingredients of a typical Southampton league game. A cold wind, a uneven playing surface, and a referee who acted with such indifference that not even constant baiting from Paul Dyke could rouse him into speech. In the second half Burridge lost possession on the right and Survey punished them with a goal on the counter attack. Their lead was once again shortlived as Bryn Schwodler cut inside and drilled across the box from the right and Ross Bryant arrived to tap in. Both sides had opportunities to win the game but they weren't taken.

4-4-2: Ben Wilson, Luke Sanderson, Mark Reeves, Paul Dyke, Jay Schwodler, Ross Bryant, Mark Sanderson, Rich Allan, Bryn Schwodler, Paul Andrews, Lee Wood.

Just been on the soton league website, couldn't believe my eyes. Top of the league BURRIDGE SPORTS. They've play more games but still that's taking the piss.
It also has us down to play Priory at home.
