Wigston Fields 5-7 Trinderbox
Mark Allen x2 (p)
A game of 'we will try and score more than you do' this morning. Another very slow and shakey start from Fields as Trinderbox sailed into a 3-0 lead in the first half and were very much on top. There attackers causing all sorts of problems for us. We didn't help ourselves though, as a team we were shocking defensively. We got a lifeline as Michael Sweeney was brought down in the box and Mark Allen converted the penalty. We got a second when Callum Marvins shot from the edge of the areasquirmed past the keeper. It was almost level before the break when Michael Sweneeys looping header was tipped over by the Trinderbox keeper, but it was Trinderbox who went further ahead before half time. 2-4 at the break. Then the goals starting flowing for both teams as the defensive mindset for both teams disappeared. Not sure in what order as I lost count but Trinderbox were always in front. Mark Allen bagged another penalty for fields, Michael Sweeney scored a neat left footed finish from a tight angle and joe Dowsing scored a right footed strike from the edge of the area after some good play. This could have easily ended in double figures for both teams as the defences seemed to go walk about. Plenty of goals for the many spectators from Trinderbox and a deserved victory for some good football and capitalising on our frailties.
