After Town’s tough game week before there was no let up with another tough one against Bishops Cleeve. Town started poorly and struggled to get their foot on the ball. Bishops were sharp and organised and were beating us to every first and second ball. Town were going up the slope and finding it difficult to get out of our own half.
The first game of the new year and Town faced tough opposition from Moreton Rangers. After a superb calendar year 2017, it was 2nd against 3rd.
Our first game for a couple of weeks and potentially touch and go if it was on. The pitch thawed lovely and we were ok to go ahead.
A local derby midweek for us this week, another heavy pitch but we were up for it after our good results in previous weeks. We knew it would be tough and that’s exactly how it was.
After our good win last week, Town were keen to carry on the momentum. We had beat our opponents 4-0 on the opening day of the season so knew if we could do the right things we would give ourselves a good chance.
