Football v Winchelsea

On Thursday 25th November the Church Lane football team took part in their first league match since the pandemic hit!

Winchelsea were the oppostion, who were just as excited as us to finally play in a match!

The match started well for Church Lane, with some great attacking play and a few shots! But it was our youngest player who was able to break through and score passed a lot of Winchelsea legs! 

This was a great confidence boost for Church Lane, who seemed to settle into the game well after this. However, moments later Winchelsea were awarded a free kick, just outside the penalty area. With a fantastic strike, Winchelsea were able to place the ball in the top right of the goal, out of reach of the Church Lane keeper. 1-1 at half time. 

The second half saw Winchelsea start strongly! They had a number of shots and forced the Church Lane defence and keeper to make a lot of saves. Eventually, the inevitable happened and Winchelsea took the lead! This however did not dampen the Church Lane spirits, who kept hier heads up and battled on. Some more excellent attacking football saw Church Lane win a penatly...which was missed! Soon after this we were able to even the scores out, with another fanatastic goal! 2-2. 

With only a few minutes left to play, it was anyone's game! Both teams showed excellent determination, but is Winchelsea who took the goal in the last few moments of the game!

Well done to all who played. The next Football game will be in the tournament on Friday 3rd December.
