Witton Team :

Tim Green
Scott Carter
Deeley
Grassby
Shaun Carter
A Clarke (c)
A Chadwick

Subs :

M Robinson
Haspell
Alder

MOM :

Shaun Carter (hard not to be after scoring 3 and a half goals...)

Next Best :

Nigel Deeley (pulling the strings from midfield)


Despite Witton starting the stronger, Runcorn took an early lead when a cross from the right wing was expertly turned home by their centre forward.

This was followed by a sloppy period of play from Witton, and it looked as though Runcorn may add to their lead.

However, after the Linnets keeper allowed an Adam Clarke shot to squirm under his body for a corner, he was left further red-faced when he could only turn Shaun Carter's near-post delivery into his own goal to put Witton back on level terms!

Witton now began to dominate, with Adam Clarke springing the Runcorn offside trap time and time again (it must be that explosive turn of pace...!!!). One such run allowed Clarke a free run on the keeper, who was quick off his line to force the Witton man wide (although to be fair, he is wide enough already!). However, Clarke showed excellent composure to unselfishly square the ball for Carter to put Witton into the lead.

It wasn't long before Runcorn were back on level terms, as a loose back pass from Grassby was intercepted by the Linnets, allowing them to equalise.

There were 2 further goals for Carter before half time, but to be honest i can't remember them!

I do however remember Runcorn's 3rd...as a delivery came over from the right side, Crouch gave a huge shout of 'KEEPERS', before totally missing the cross and allowing Runcorn an easy tap in.

4 - 3 at Half Time.

The second half saw Deeley begin to totally dominate the midfield areas, and it was Nige's excellent through ball that allowed Shaun Carter to get his 4th goal.

There were also goals for Tom Sneyd and Drew 'one touch, one goal' Haspell, with Drew chesting the ball into an unguarded net, after the keeper had tipped a rasping shot onto the cross bar (it's all about timing!).

Although Runcorn did manage to pull another 2 goals back, there was only ever going to be one winner now - and Witton were even able to afford the luxury of missing a late penalty. Although it was an excellent save by the keeper if truth be known. And he did move early, so it should really have been a re-take. And the game was already won, so it doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of things.

Anyway...thanks to Witton for allowing us use of the pitch. Thanks to Des, Sprucey, and Pete Riley for letting us in, hanging up the kit, and locking up after us. Thanks to Helen Carter for washing the kit. Thanks to the Ref and linesmen for taking part (all are linked to Witton U15s, so that was excellent - thanks to GE for arranging this). Thanks to everybody who came down to watch. Thanks to the Runcorn lads. And of course thanks to all of the Witton lads who turned out again and played the game in the right spirit.

And a final thanks to Pritch for an excellent training session last week. But perhaps next time we can practise a few penalties...

Really enjoyed the game, Witton by far the better team. If it wasn't for their No 9, who had played for the first team in a friendly match, it would have been 7-1.

Cheers Robbo for a great night last night. Only thing missing was some beers in town for Tims birthday (soz, couldnt make it)

Me and Tom really enjoyed the whole thing, although he refused to to sort out my groin for me afterwards !!

Hope your heart has calmed down now (I'd like to say I probably gave you a few grey hairs but ..........)

"Bondy, get back here.... Bondy, STAY"

If you dont make it as a Professional Football Manager you could always turn to dog training - Cesar the dog whisperer is looking for an apprentice. he he

Thanks again to all involved.

PS: Can you order me a top and I'll drop a deposit round to your house, just let me know how much you need

Bondy i was considering tying some bungee rope to your back at one point!! Even injuring your groin didn't stop you roaming up the pitch (although it did seem to stop you from getting back into defence again...!!).

It was good that everybody got a good run out of at least 20 minutes or so (although i was hoping i wouldn't be made to go on!!).

As always, it was a pleasure to have Nige involved. I just wish he would keep his pants on in the dressing room!
