Eaton Socon res. 1, Buckden 3

10th January 2015 :: Cambs FA County League MPG 1B

Eaton were up against a top Buckden side today. They started off slow with new players working together, but once they found their feet Eaton settled well. They introduce Dave Rosen and Alex Chamberlin for his 1st Eaton game, and Eaton looked good going in half time 0-0. They came out second half pressing Buckden and playing a good passing game. The game was then changed by a controversial decision to award a free kick, which resulted in a Buckden goal. Eaton rallied and responded straight away with a goal from débutante Alex, who was chuffed to bits. Eaton were now on top but were to be robbed of another goal with a Damian finishing well only to be given off side at the very last moment. Eaton battled on but were then to be undone by another big decision, when the ref gave Buckden a very close call penalty with the Eaton player clearly getting the ball. Eaton didn't give up and continued to push, but were to have another goal disallowed by the ref. It was seen as a controversial decision as the linesman had kept his flag down, and it was much to the dismay of the Eaton bench and players. This deflated Eaton and buckden went on to score a further goal.

Man of the match: Warren Godfrey
