A dominant 8-2 victory
By Andrew Bell
Hanwell beat us in the first game of the season, so we headed across to their ground looking for revenge. Inspite of the recent rain it was a nice pitch and a good set up, so ideal for our passing style. With some of our regular defenders missing, Charlie, Oscar and Aidan had to drop back and partner Toby in defence, but they all play really well - tackling well, covering each other and using pace to get back and recover when required. Going forward we looked very strong, pressing Hanwell high up the pitch and regularly stealing the ball. Oliver in particular nicking it off their defenders to score his goal. Some very neat passing and moving in to space created a number of chances and the shooting was more accurate than recent games. Goals for Oscar, Patrick, Oliver plus 2 for Harrison and a hattrick for Adam completed the victory. A captains performance from Adam in centre midfield and Man of the Match for Aidan, coming back from recent difficult games, assisting a number of goals and working back defensively too.
