On a very boggy pitch on Thursday 17th October Stretton Handley welcomed Sharley Park.
Stretton Handley’s top scorer MH was unavailable due to illness but this didn’t stop the team from battling and trying their best throughout!
GT started in goal and made some fantastic saves with again good defending from FT, SB, TB and LH. Unfortunately, GT couldn’t stop everything and at half time the score was 6-0.
LH went in goal for the second half and again made some stunning saves and with GT now outfield Stretton grew in confidence and created some good chances. CG, BP and FH started to link together well, allowing GT to dribble freely around players only for the Sharley Park goalkeeper to make some good saves.
Unfortunately. the match finished 12-0 but the scoreline wasn’t true for the amount of effort that the Stretton Handley team put in.
Player of the match GT.
Next match at home vs Ashover on Monday 21st October (last match before winter break).
