A Falcons 4-1 win-what is black and white and red all over?

09 January 2016

Falcons 4 - 1 Amersham & Chalfont Men's Vets

Hawks were reasonably confident going into the game but with the bare X1 fully fit, the supersub Kaluza was reluctant to join the fray following a previous hamstring issue.

Dave White made his debut and was able to offer pace to the midfield of Sobey, Dunnill and Griffiths with John Black also pulling the defence around. A fine move saw Dunnill beat the goalkeeper and Black made sure to make it 1-0.

Griffiths then finished a fine move with Meadows and Sobey opening the left before a sloppy lack of concentration saw Amersham pull one back.

At this point a clash at the top of the D involving John Black saw the ball cause a nasty head injury and JB was forced to leave the field with a deep cut which would require a few friends at the JR to ensure some tidy stitches were applied.

A re-shuffle saw Hutton join Midfield and Hawks took time to settle. However they exerted their dominance over the game as Warner managed to hit the keepers pads in quick succession before Meadows finished crisply to make it 3-1.

Sobey was now able to exploit space in midfield as he went to a higher position and with Warner and Dunnill in support the pattern returned to Hawks play. The best goal of the game made it 4-1 as Warner drove through the right channel and his pull back was crisply finished by Dunnill.

At 4-1 Amersham still showed they could be a danger on the break and hit the post twice in a 5 minute spell before Hawks struck the cross bar at the other end.

A good game which ended with excellent hospitality at a local pub owned by the Amersham Centre Half. A throw back to the good old days!!
