Match Report - 02 Sep 2018, Clapham Rovers A Clapham Rovers lost to SWAG


Rovers!

Rovers 3 – 5 SWAG

Football is the beautiful game. It is also the painful game.

We came up against SWAG a side with a midfield 3 who ran the show and a striker who created goals from nothing and despite surrendering 80% of the possession for the bulk of the 2nd half, we almost took the 3 points. It says a lot about us that we pushed a team of that quality so far and I was simultaneously gutted not to take anything from the match but immensely proud of the character shown from 1-14. Never has UTFR felt so appropriate. I can’t wait to play them again and turn them over later in the season!

1-0 A great ball from G in the centre half position into the left hand channel saw Seb race away from the right back, cut into the box and plant the ball into the far corner of the net for a trademark finish.
***DISALLOWED GOAL*** A cross into the box from a SWAG midfielder was met with a bullet header into the net from myself. As I’d also been kicked in the head at the same time, the Ref rightly disallowed it.
1-1 The diminutive SWAG attacker took the ball up on the edge of the box, shimmied around a Rovers centre half and passed the ball down the centre of the net passed an unsighted Pybus.
1-2 SWAG went ahead with a contentious decision. A corner dribbled across the 6 yard box and as Tim Louis went to clear he was ceremoniously tripped up from behind and could only clear the ball into the net. A clear foul.
2-2 A ball over the top saw Seb in a race with a defender and the keeper. Having disentangled himself from the keeper from the floor, he composed himself and lashed the ball into the net.
3-2 In an almost carbon copy of the 1st Gareth Bale, I mean Seb, sprinted down the left hand side and cut in, stroking the ball towards the far corner. The keeper got himself in a mess and allowed the ball to squirm through his path and into the net.
HALF TIME
3-3 Despite a tremendous rear guard action where SWAG didn’t look like scoring, their nippy striker skipped through to poke the ball through Pybus’s legs on the 6 yard box.
3-4 With shouts for offside, Pybus hesitated in collecting the ball and as he did he brought down a SWAG player who had raced through on his blindside. SWAG tucked away the pen.
3-5 Ah pi55. Have blotted this memory out.

MOM. I have hitherto mentioned the SWAG striker who bagged a hat-trick but it was our very own Seb Finkle who shone brightest above anyone else, scoring 3 goals from even less with the sparse possession we enjoyed. We’re running out of superlatives for the man now. So much so, i’ve made up my own. He was threemendous.

This week sees us come up against AFC Hammersmith Town. These have a formidable home record and have only lost once here in approx 2 seasons when Streatham Stanley beat them late last season. Let’s start strong and in the right frame of mind. We can beat them. We have nothing to fear. We’re bl000dy Clapham Rovers!
