Albion Sports v Trojans 18/08/21



Albion Sports 0-1 Staveley MW



There weren’t that many chances to score in the first half but Albion had the first one,.. A corner from the far side was punched away by Rio Alberry before it could land in the 6 yard box. And again a few moments later he acrobatically clawed away a speculative looping punt into the box, but were clutching at straws to describe either as goal scoring opportunities.

Declan Howe kept plugging away upfront but similarly chances were at a premium , that’s not to say it was a poor game and that both sides weren’t trying to play just that both defences were on top.

Our first chance came on 25 minutes with Charlie Oglesby crashing a header against the angle of post and crossbar after an overhit corner kick had been headed back by Myron Gibbons.

Our second and best chance fell to Rieves Boocock, just as the half time whistle was about to blow..he jinked his way into the box before a last gasp tackle robbed him as he was about to shoot.

Again the second half was short on chances but just before the hour a Charlie Bell cross from the right was cleared out to Rieves Boocock whose shot from the edge of the box was charged down Albion tried to break but their forward pass was inturn charged down by Pat Lindley with it falling nicely for him to send Myron Gibbons through on goal..who was able to steer it goalwards and past ‘keeper George Clark who was wrong footed by a deflection and was unable to adjust himself as it trickled over the line #theyallcount.

Albion Sports 0-1 Trojans

With a “big 30” (which turned out to be nearer forty with added on time that came out of nothing????) still remaining if you excuse the clichéd pun our lads worked like the Trojans they are to keep out a period of sustained pressure from the home side, Charlie Oglesby, makeshift centre back Mitchell Langton and Man of the match Pat Lindley were particularly immense in heading, blocking and clearing everything away making sure zero chances or at least clear cut ones were given away.
