Sands United F.C vs AFC Hackleton
Sunday Morning 10:30 Kick Off at our new Brixworth home ground!
The team welcomed multiple new faces in the squad for the game today, with injuries and holidays for the old guard playing a part.
A slow first half saw the Tangerine Army 4-0 down at Half Time ( Playing in the new Blue kit today), with the Sand's boy's never really getting going at all (and some controversial ref decisions) - Half time could not come sooner!
HALF TIME- Some heroic words from the Manager Spencer and Assistant Manager Tristan at half time, As well as a team talk from Captain Rob's Vice captain Leon that could of been from a Hollywood movie, and the boy's returned to the pitch for the second half!
And what a different team they were! With a new found confidence and belief Sand's United went toe to toe with Hackleton, with only an amazing save keeping the captain Rob Allen's curling shot from hitting the back of the net!
James Christie and the rest of the Sand's back line having an inspired half insuring Hackelton would never score again in this game!
Corner to Sand's and some Top Manager duties from Spencer, sending Leon up for the corner. Cue an absolute Bullet Header from Leon Gavin to pull a goal back and become the first goalscorer for Sand's at the new home ground!
Both team's battled on with both team's visibly tiring!
SAND'S UNITED 1 AFC HACKELTON 4
