Went to watch the Supporters team take on Runcorn Linnets last night. I thought the lads performed well and certainly gave Linnets a good game, created more chances than their hosts but weren't able to take them and ended up beaten by the only goal. Talking with Andy Chad after the game, he was saying that Runcorn Supporters team do play regularly so we acquitted ourselves very well but were maybe short of match practice.
Yeah, we lost 1 nil to a first half goal. Crouchy had made a very good save prior to that.
Missing Nige Deeley, we struggled to keep the ball, and as a result were a little over-run at times in midfield.
Second half i think we were much more composed, and looked very threatening.
Last 10 minutes we understandably went a little gung-ho, but despite Grazzer's best efforts we just couldn't snatch an equaliser.
Chris Jump got MoM for us.
The game was slightly marred by a nasty head injury to Stu Jump. He ended up going to Leighton for 5 stitches, and is ok now. I loved his "Let me go back on, i'm Terry Butcher" attitude!! "I promise i wont head it!".
Hopefully arrange the return fixture for August/September.
