An intra-club 'bibs vs non-bibs' game with a mix of 1s, 2s and 3s, in each side plus Jo from the ladies' section. It's the first time I've written a match report for both teams, so detail is scant. In the first half, bibs had more of the attacking play and created more opportunities but they either went begging or (more often) were stopped by Leon. In the second half, non-bibs were more on the front foot but bibs scored the first two goals, with close-range finishes by Steve. In fact the play ebbed and flowed with Jo, Nick Porter and Teva making some great passing and moving raids forwards for bibs, whilst Yuval, Simon, Lucas and Daniel responded for non-bibs. Daniel scored from a tight angle when the ball fell to him unmarked at the post and Simon twice bamboozled bibs' entire back line with solo efforts. Daniel scored a second (at some point) and non-bibs were 4-2 up. Steve scored bibs' (and his) third, a tap in from centimetres out following a deflected Leon Jackson save. Jo and Lucas both making their debuts for the mens' team, were the outstanding players in a well-contested and well-played game. Thanks to Clare and Bob for umpiring
