Great Shelford 0, Eaton Socon 1

14th August 2018 :: Cambs FA County League Kershaw Premier

The new look Eaton travelled to Girton to face Shelford in the first game of the campaign. It took Shelford only 18 seconds to open up the Eaton rear guard but some how the ball stayed out. The game was end to end with the long ball tactics of Shelford against the short inter play of Eaton. Eaton made some good chances with Ryan Whittingham at the fore linking up with the lively Ben Cole. West, Mason and Vale were strong in the midfield and new centre back partnership of skipper Keech and Roberts solid.

Eaton scored midway through the second half through Whittingham to send the large crowd wild as a big upset was now possible. Shelford now started to play more football but Eaton held firm with young Shay Griffiths in goal stopping all before him. After 8 minutes of added time the referee blew the final whistle to give managers Garwood and Dawkes a fantastic first win off the season.
