Falcons 3 - 1 Trojans Men's Vets 2

Falcons travelled to Trojans on Saturday for what they knew would be a tough game having found themselves 0-0 at the half point in last seasons fixture and having to pull out all the stops to win that game 3-0.

This season after once again wasting numerous short-corners Falcons went into half-time a goal down from the only Trojans attack that breached the 25 yard line.

Up until that point the attack of Bennett, Dunnill and Mark White were pulling the very best out of the Trojans goalkeeper who was playing a blinder.

The half-time team talk focussed on the amount of possession we were enjoying and to continue the passing game but add a bit more width and play around the outstanding goalkeeper, words that would ultimately prove to be reminiscent of the preceding season.

The second half saw Falcons once again blow numerous short corners including inside slips, one-twos and deflections such was the form of the Trojans goalie, but this half Mark White, Pete Bennett and Will Cairns all scored deserved goals to give Falcons their fifth successive win.

The rest of the team pulled together to forge the kind of play that has so often created goals this season Kaye and Jones solid in the centre of defence with Blomley and Heinrich on their flanks providing the width. With Cairns, Hutton and Burrell in midfield stretching the opposition enabling White, Dunnill and Bennett up front to win the corners and finish the moves.  Success has been built on teamwork and always believing we have the players that will score the goals to win games.

Next week we precede the Mens 1's fixture in a Super Saturday match against Guildford presently sitting fourth place in the league.
