Match Report

Match Report - 11 Feb 2018, Clapham Rovers A Clapham Rovers lost to AFC Balham


Rovers!
Rovers 2 – 3 AFC Balham
Ah balls. We lost again to our last remaining bogey team at the death. There’s still plenty more of the season left so let’s put it behind us and enjoy all there is to come. The season ain’t over yet!
We went 1-0 up from Graeme Alexander (only G would understand that reference) with another successful penalty being dispatched after Smud was clipped in the box after running in at pace and being taken out.
Despite all our decent start we were soon disappointingly pegged back after we lost the ball on the edge of their penalty area and after some time the ball ended up being scuffed home from the right hand side of the box from their striker’s wrong foot.
We went 2-1 up almost straight after half time when Smud blasted the ball high into the middle of the net for a fine goal on his return.
Outside of a decent chance at the near post from his left win back position and a lung busting Smud run, AFC pretty much laid siege to the Rovers net for the rest of the 2nd half, playing with the blasting wind.
From a very dubious free kick they equalised as their left footer who grabbed the first, used the wind to curl past Pybus. With only seconds to go, they then scored the winner with a bobbly, squirming finish from inside the box which wrong footed Pybus. Very agonising.
MOM. Smud. It’s like he’d never been away and we realized how much we missed his pace, trickery and goals.
Mentions also must go in dispatches for James Stone and Cyprian, The Beast, Boateng for useful performances on their debut.
Sunday 18th February Fixture
This Sunday sees us HOPEFULLY (weather permitting for the 3rd time) come up against Battersea Park Rangers in the Southern Sunday League FA Cup....the Marcus Lipton Cup. They are top of the Premier League so that’s only one thing that can happen.....a famous giant killer from the ROVERS!

This ground is a bit of a ball bag to get to so I suggest people head to Raynes Park for 9.15am ish and we’ll pick people up from there and drop people off at the ground.
