Back in April, we were challenged by KGK Print to a charity football match. Held at Goffs School, the game started off very competitive, but it soon became clear who was the dominant team with KGK establishing an early 3-0 lead.
We kept our heads up high and managed to claw back a goal of our own, thanks to some great work from our left sided partnership of Robbie McCorkell and Richard Moule, making it 3-1.
However, disaster soon struck as our goalkeeper uncharacteristically tried to run for a ball. One sprained leg later, and we had to sacrifice one of our best midfielders to go between the posts for the remainder of the match.
KGK took full advantage of this, and quickly piled on the goals, and at half time we saw ourselves down 6-1.
The second half we came out fighting, but so did they. Taking no prisoners, the KGK players run rings round our team. Aside from a late consolation goal, we were well and truly humbled once the final whistle blew and the scoreline read 14-2.
Despite the defeat, it was a fun and friendly game and for a great cause, with all donations going to the Isabel Hospice.
With a rematch on the cards soon, we will be putting our players through rigorious training drills to try and get that scoreline down – or better yet, go for the win!
Thanks to all players for taking part! See you on the football pitch again soon.
