Hawks Mens 6's start off with a well earned draw at Marlow

10 January 2015

Men's 6s 2 - 2 Marlow Men's 4s

In the absence of Lord KP Lookalike (off shooting some poor helpless feathered things), it was left to Steve Elliott to provide the stand out strike at the opponents goal - except in this case he appeared to mean striking the ball where it went...Unfortunately the oppo keeper made an amazing diving save to his right to keep Elliott off the scoresheet. That was to be Elliott's last meaningful contribution as he was carried off with a "superficial" (according to the Chair) ankle injury. Still, the 6's did manage to put some delightful passing movements together marred by the play in between which was all to often hurried and too erratic.

Goals scored by Ashley Robbins and Affie Narwaz gave us the point, both from good strikes by Chris Orme. Ormey had a good game - although we will be providing him with a zip for his gentle mouth next game, other notable contributions from Ashley Robbins and OLA (One legged Al - now with two...) who showed off what must have been an extremely disciplined festive period due to his amazing fitness - unlike the rest of the team who had all, in various amounts, quite obviously over indulged. Jonny Atkins made a world class double save in the second half, the second a diving one to his left, from off the floor to keep us in the game again...

It was pleasing to see the return of Richard (I can beat anyone) Venables who showed us how to beat 5 players in a row and still not get a shot on goal. Unfortunately he returns to 7th team Skipper duties on Saturday - oh, how we miss you Venables....

The defence showed its usual dependability by shipping a goal in the first 3 minutes, so it was actually a good result having been 2 down on the half hour.

Next week away at Eastcote (4.30......deep joy!)
