Match Report

Sunday 8th February 2015


Avery Hill Vets
1 - 4
Barry Grainger, Paul Tanton, Simon Davies, Jim St John

By Gary Rosslee

A very good win

GK - Gary Rosslee, 7. (Joint MOM)
Called into action as early as the first minute to pull off the save of the match (and apparently the best save I’ve ever made according to Jim St John) made 2 more decisive stops during the game.

LB – Daragh Nott, 7.
Covered nigh on every blade of grass today, all over the place.

CB – Chris Rawley, 7.
Solid 90 minutes at centre back, spat his dummy out a couple of times.

CB – Dean Wyatt (8 (Joint MOM)
Asked to play at the heart of defence today and looked like he’d played there all his life.

RB – Matt Ellis, 7.
Made some good runs on and off the ball, provided some much needed energy down the right hand side.

LM – Paul Tanton, 7.
Chalked up his 385th goal for the Guild with a well taken finish.

CM- Jim St John, 7.
Chipped in with his 10th goal of the campaign courtesy of a well taking finish to make it 0-4.

CM – Dean Murphy, 7.
Gave his man just too much room on the front post to flick the ball home direct from a corner. Took a nasty tackle to the leg and had the stud marks to prove it!

RM – Ben Clunn, 4.
Should have done better to clear the Avery goal off of the line when on the back post!

CF – Simon Davies, 7.
Scored a worldie from some 25 yards out with an excellent first time curled effort that beat the keeper all hands up. Was unlucky earlier on with a header that was saved by the keeper.

CF- Barry Grainger, 7.
Opened the scoring for Farnborough after the Avery Keeper spilled a routine cross to allow him to stab home into an empty net (they can’t all be screamers)


Richard Davis, 5.
Little time to make any real impact.

Andy Cobham, (not used)

Match summary.

We came and did a good workman like job today, the scores maybe could have been even higher against a team we tend to defeat quite easily each time we play them. Our back 4 had never played together before but were rarely troubled and Rosslee in goal although at times was a spectator had to be alert on a few occasions. Next week we are away to Sanco in Dulwich, who will be looking to get some retribution on their 2-1 defeat back in October last year.

Man of the match: Gary Rosslee & Dean Wyatt
