Mens 2nd Xl 2 Neath 6 Monday, January 28, 2008Posted by mrfolds in Cheltenham Hockey, Match Report, Mens 2nd XI.
A disappointing result against the league’s bottom side. A depleted side started slowly and found themselves two goals down early on. We did then raise our game and goals from John Thompson & Pete Holdaway drew us level. Unfortunately we then failed to convert several good scoring opportunties and short corners and our chance of winning the match was lost. Sid Ellis was harshly sent off for dropping his stick, having been fouled several times and we fell to peices allowing the opposition to run in late goals for a flattering scoreline. There were promising performances for the future from Dan Caudle and debutant Martin Stevens.
