The Season So Far

The Season So Far

It has been a pretty positive start to the season for us at United with some very strog results and performances.  We have progressed in one of the cup competitions with a win against Stamford Lions - a team from a higher league.  The performance was outstanding that day and the result was deservedly ours.  In the league we have seen some high-scoring games with some excellent individual performances and team work.

It has been good to the see the team take shape in the new league and players are beginning to come more into their own.  We are seeing the luxury of having multiple goal scorers which is proving a problem for teams on occasion. Our goals are coming from dead -balls, open play and individual efforts so up front we are working hard.  Our midfield has been commanding and has been an excellent engine room for the team.  In defence we are adapting to the loss of our captain through injury but the performances have been solid throughout.

The league will be tough this season and our next two matches are against two of the teams fighting for the top spot along with ourselves.  It will be an interesting few weeks ahead!

Resounding Win Away

  Thursday 10th August 2017

We travelled last night for another pre-season friendly, this time Billinghay being our hosts.  On a cold, damp night we turned up with a strong squad, all pushing for places as the season draws near.

As the game got underway, the game was pretty evenly matched, with Billinghay having the better of the chances but not really threatening the goal.  On 10 minutes, a wicked deflection took the ball away from stand in goalkeeper Elliot Clark giving him no chance at all.  We were 1-0 down but determined to put this behind us.  Almost straight away, we were on the offensive with multiple chances either being saved or going wide.  Finally, late in the half, an equaliser came through last season's top scorer Ryan O'Loughlin.  A good finish from a loose ball.  This spurred us on and within five minutes we were ahead.  A fantastic, flighted ball from Dom Lyons was met by John Courtney and slid past the keeper to put us 2-1 up going into half time.  Oddly, it was at half time that the game took a strange turn. Goalkeeper, Elliot Clark asked the official about the penalty claim for what appeared to be a clear hand ball. No voices were raised or language used but the refereee decided Elliot would play no further part.  Not sent off, just not included any further!  A quick change for the second half saw goalscorer Ryan O'Loughlin take the gloves!

In the second half we picked up where we left off and pressured from the restart.  Within a few minutes we were further ahead following a neat through ball from Matt Charles leading to a clever finish from the impressive Dom Lyons.  3-1 United.  Shortly after, the favour was returned as Matt Charles chased a long through ball to slot it past the advancing keeper for his first of the night to make it 4-1.  From here United really turned the screw with Charles, O'Loughlin, Bradley, Grainger, Lyons and Courtney all causing real problems for the home defence. The pressure paid off again when a rasping shot from Matt Charles flew past the home keeper leaving him no chance making it 5-1.  A few minutes later, having swapped goalkeeping gloves for an outfield shirt, Ryan O'Loughlin scored his second and United's 6th after a mazy run through the defence.  The scoring was completed less than five minutes later when Matt Charles completed his hat trick following a run through the defence to make it 7-1 United.  Despite the scoreline, United continued to press for more.  As the final whistle approached a curled shot from Keaton Grainger flew just past the post.

All in all, a very good night for a strong United side.  That takes us to three wins out of three in pre-season friendlies. 

Pre Season So Far

  Wednesday 02nd August 2017

Tonight we travelled the short distance to Leverton to face a strong side we have only met in friendlies.  A tough match with hances for both teams ended with United victors by 2-1.  Goals coming from Matt Charles with a 20yd rocket and new addition Courtney Skeldon bagging the decisive goal. So far so good with 2 wins out of 2 in pre-season. This Saturday we face a tough test as we travel to Railway Athletic
