Match Report - 30 Mar 2014, Clapham Rovers Clapham Rovers lost to Real Northern 'A'
Rovers 1 - 3 Real Northern
I won't be writing a match report for this match as this was not far off the shambles of the dark old days and not something I want to revisit.
I will pay credit to the lads who did turn up and manfully gave it a really good go, particularly when we started with 8 men and managed to keep the score to 3-1. We were all over them 2nd half and to bring the scores to 2-1 with 8 men was amazing. Real Northern weren't all that and it was a question of what might have been. The pitch was great, the weather good and it was all there for us to get a result. We eventually managed to get ourselves up to 11 men at half time but the deficit proved too great.
Howard got the goal following neat work from Dan in the box. Howard was on hand to hook it into the far corner of the net.
I must stress again the importance of attending the match if you make yourself available. Not attending has consequences for everyone else.
Galo, deciding not to turn up, or bring his ringer along with him, meant that Dan Endara was late arriving as he waited around in vain to pick him up. Instead of starting with 11, we had to start with 8 and by the time Dan arrived to give us 9, we were already 1-nil down. What a shambles.
MOM: Everyone on the pitch.
