The latest cold snap played havoc with the fixture schedule this week. Despite rumoured plans afoot to rescue the Mangotsfield pitch with brooms and hairdryers, there was only a small afternoon window for matches to go ahead. But you can only win the games in front of you and the players rose to the challenge. Two away games and two at home, the Orange Army brought back all 4 wins, to post a rare 100% record.
Men's 2nd Team
Yate [1-5] Bristol & West 2
2s won an eventful game away Vs Yate. Final score 5-1.
Cheeky first half yellow 🟨 for Wayne saw a guest appearance in goal for top scorer Dan Lusmore. We rallied to keep the score at 0-0 going into the break.
All to do in the second half, but back to full strength, we showed our quality to put 5 past Yate with a couple of stunning finishes (and a few feisty cards 😳) along the way.
Results/cancellations elsewhere put us 2nd in the league (for now!).
Goals: Lus x2, Shaq x2, Faerber
