Hamble Harriers 1 - 1 Burridge AFC

Mount Pleasant
Wednesday 30th August

The problems suffered at the hands of Blues last week were addressed in this final pre-season fixture, as Burridge - marshalled in defence by Matt Birks and Kev Willsher - fought to deny Hamble the space they desired to dictate any style of play. The first half was typical Southampton League fare as promising passing movements were too often stifled by a hurried tempo; but Burridge did at times show signs of positive attacking play. Quick passing saw the ball given wide, which as we know is the stem of many a goal. But, the goal that put Burridge into the lead was after a mistake. Bryn Schwodler chased a through ball, but an over eager Hamble defender put too much purchase on his back pass, leaving him with egg on his face. Hamble equalized when their most dangerous player drove in from the left too drill under Hewitt, who despite getting his hands to the ball was unable to divert its power.

4-3-3: Kristian Hewitt, Jay Schwodler, Kev Willsher, Luke Sanderson, Mark Sanderson, Greg Baker (Ben Hutton), Steve Froud, Lee Fielder, Paul Andrews (John Hutton), Bryn Schwodler

I don't know where Alan was; possibly agonising on who to sign for - Wildern Old Boys or Burridge AFC.
Justin's common law wife was enjoying an evening out, and he was unable to find a baby-sitter for my God-Daughter Sophie. So as you'll agree his priority was the little one.

good performance last night very workman like and with a better final ball we should have won.although they did cause a few scares in the final minutes I put that down to lack of carrots as the light was fadeing.There secretary gave me the wrong kick off time and Nigel the manager was not best pleased he also lost there home pitch to some other side called hedge end.See you all Sat @ the Varasity ground 1.45pm.Maintain that same sort of attitude for the next match.For those who was there I hoped you enjoyed the after match cabaret I know Bryn got an eyefall for his £1.50 cheapscate
