Match Report

Match Report - 04 Oct 2015, Clapham Rovers A Clapham Rovers beat Accrington Stanley Bowles


overs!

We played some lovely stuff on Sunday. Some of the best football I’ve seen us play in a long time. We were cool and calm in possession, constantly probed for opportunities and an aberration aside, solid at the back. We’ve set the marker for the season now.

There’s no game this Sunday. Ben the PT can’t do Sunday training at the moment but he’s trying to find someone who can to put on a session.

Thanks to Bunman I have a fool proof and accurate plan for the match report. Please find it below. Cheers Bunman.

Rovers 2 – 1 ASB

ASB are our bogey team. They’re obdurate, tough to break down and despite often being the dominant side, we struggle to put many past them.

We were indeed dominant throughout this match and it was no surprise when we deservedly took the lead. A freekick on half-way line taken by Horse was lofted in and Skipper Nath was there with acres time of time and space to guide a lofted header into bottom corner. 20 minutes gone and with ASB not looking threatening in the slightest, I finally thought we would slay the ASB hoodoo for good.

A corner from the blossoming Molby (has Molby ever been called blossoming?) lead to another chance but with Horse lurking free at the back post. Sadly as no call was forthcoming, Godders standing in front of him, snaffled the chance but could only direct his header wide.

A little later Mobly blazed over the bar after working a decent opportunity for himself on the edge of the box. A little more blossoming needed. Just before that however, we did have our first slight scare when a G slip, sent the oppo one-on-one with Pybus who was tremendously quick out of his deckchair on the goal line to smother the chance.

That ASB chance was unfortunately a sign of things to come as a loose pass from G a little later, found Horse on his rear hooves and an ASB attacker bundled through to score the most undeserved goal in football history. Pybus taking a konk on the snoz (Bunman’s words) merely rubbed salt in the wounds and I did wonder if the curse of ASB had struck again.

To our credit, we carried on the same as before with some quality and patient build up play. Charlie had a couple of decent efforts blocked by some last ditch defending from ASB. Molby also had a clever free kick pushed round the post and the keeper did a Rob Green-esque flop on the ball vs USA but managed to keep the ball out from a marauding Dan Horner.

My inspirational half time teamtalk focused on maintaining our lovely football, but remaining focused against another error at the back.

Full credit to everyone, we began the 2nd half in much the same vein as the 1st. A Godwin free header at back post from a Horner cross showed our intent but sadly Godwin could only head back across goal with the net gaping. Charlie also couldn’t add to his 2 goals last week when some intelligent play only saw him lift the ball over at the back post.

By 80 minutes to go, I had come off for Sheva and Stu had come on for Horner to rough up the ASB defence. I was thinking about how I was going to cut and paste a previous match report where we last undeservedly drew 1-1 with ASB where 2/3 of the DREAM TRIO 2013 took the game by the scruff of the neck.

An inch perfect diagonal cross-field pass from Matt in the middle of the park set Molby free in the left wing position. His first touch on his left took it out of his feet and onto his right, a moment before the keeper, and he was able to stab it high into roof of net. A pi55ing wonderful goal. An absolute joy to behold.

We saw out the game for the deserved 3 points with a minimum of fuss.

MOM. Some really decent displays out there and special mention must go to a blossoming Molby. However, Matt Wright deservedly took the plaudits for an all action display. Tough in the tackle but also showing a probing football dexterity. Mike Tyson in a ballet shoes.
