Kris Harding 9 mins, Ryan Warr 18 mins
Macron SCFL Div 2 Supplementary Shield
Sat 10 April 21
Beeding picked up our second win in the Supplementary Shield to maintain a maximum return of 6 points, and with other results going our way including defeat for Round 1 winners TD Shipley to last weeks opponents St Francis Rangers, we have a small gap on the chasing pack. With others involved in midweek action (Charlwood v Copthorne, St Francis Rangers v Jarvis Brook), that could all change by the time we travel to Jarvis Brook next Saturday for our next outing.
Just the one change in the line up from the previous match, with Jamie Rowland taking an enforced time out in line with head injury protocols, and Justin Gregory still to return to action, it was a first call up for Frazer Lawrence. He was to have a fine game and fitted quickly into the shape and energy expected.
Beeding started fast and were to take an early 2-0 lead. A Kris Harding header from a delightful flick cross from the impressive Pat O’Sullivan on 9 mins, and then a lovely flowing move was neatly finished off by Ryan Warr, and provided just reward for a decent first half from the lads. A scrappy short goal kick that got intercepted provided the only real scare, and good chances that went begging could have added to a dominant 45 mins.
Charlwood as expected showed much more spirit after the break, but our defensive quality and shape was good, and with good use of the bench we were able to use our resources and game management to keep a clean sheet, and see the game out.
The shift put in by the whole squad, together with maintaining our discipline and commitment to the game plan, got us across the line for a hard earned 3 pts. Hard to pick a man of the match, all can be satisfied with the contribution they made. We’ve gone with Joe Warner for the second match running. Joe’s in a good vein of form, and shrugged off a nasty clattering in the first half to be at the heart of everything.
