Match Report - 14 Oct 2017, Old Wykehamist Football Club 2nd XI lost to Old Stoics
With an incredibly strong side the 2s hit the ground running. By far the most silky football I have seen this season with the attacking force of Skinner, Masefield, Kiko, Vernon and Wilson combining the opposition looked terrified. 2 nil after 10 minutes, 2 neat goals for Wilson. Kiko then got in on the action with a superb individual run and finish. Think Giggs 1999 semi final FA Cup. 3 nil after 15 minutes.
Sadly after this something went VERY wrong. 3 - 3 at half time with some sloppy mistakes, over confidence and brain fades across the pitch. Second half we started to play some better football with more composure only for the Stoics to nick a goal with 10 minutes to go and hold on for the win.
Summary: The team showed some great quality but a lack of fight - something every member of our losing side vowed to put right. We are getting there and with a little more bite, results are around the corner!
Team: Orban, Cheetham, Dawkins, Mercer, Rowley, Skinner, Opfermann, Masefield, Wilson, Vernon, Cubitt, Gheerbrant, Underwood
