FERRING 0 v 4 UBFC
Taylor, Harding, Sandford x 2
SAT 14 DECEMBER 2019
MACRON SCFL DIV 2
AT GLEBELANDS, FERRING
The attitude of the whole squad was spot on as we made the short trip to a much improved Ferring, on a cold and blustery day and on a sticky pitch to maintain our unbeaten run, and cut the gap to the leaders Montpelier Villa to 7 points, with a game in hand.
Justin Gregory, Leo Trower, Jamie Rowland returned to the starting line up, and James Sandford was available to join a strong bench. Picking the starting 11 is proving a tough ask for the managers – good !
Playing down the slope and down wind first half, Beeding enjoyed good possession but were struggling to breakdown a resilient home side. It took a terrific finish to open the scoring. After an attack broke down, the ball was recycled to Justin, a lovely left foot cross to the far post was met 18 yards out on the volley by Johnny and smashed in top corner. The goal machine Kris had let a couple go begging before a smart finish extended our lead. HT 2-0 up.
Ferring came flying at us in an enterprising start to the second half, rattled the bar and a super save from Dan kept our lead before the composed Callum and Gunny re-took control of midfield and got us back on the front foot. Leo and Johnny were a constant threat on the right side, to set up Sandy in the box for our third, and a lovely sweeping best move of the match saw Lewie playing in an overlapping Leo with a first time cross met by a flying header for Sandy, lovely goal! 3 in 3 games for James
Jamie, Leo and Gunny were to go close as we finished the game strongly, and wrap up the 3 points. Another clean sheet.
MOM was another tough one. The consistent performances of Lewie, Justin, Callum and keeper Dan, the threat all game of Johnny and Kris all contenders, we went with Leo. Showed there is so much more to his game than solid defending, well played Leo
