This weekend’s visitors were table toppers Childrey Reserves. There were more changes forced upon the team, as players dropped out left right and centre. Luckily the first team had no fixture and the reserves game was postponed, so a couple of senior players were drafted in as replacements.
The match was much closer than the score line suggests in this fixture. Many changes were forced on the team and with no recognised goalkeeper available again, Martin Key stepped up to the plate.
The Don returned to league action with the long trip to pointless Kintbury Rangers. After four defeats on the trot and the departure of assistant manager Martin Harries it was important to get things back on an even keel and regain some confidence.
Another away fixture at Hanney saw the A’s pick up their first league win and a good performance throughout the team.
The visit to local rivals Coleshill was always going to be a difficult affair, when the entire defence from last week was unavailable for selection. The lads that came in all played well and one of them opened the scoring.
