Sadly, didn't make it in the end, fixing fence that took a battering. Sounds a decent point in somewhat difficult conditions at Princes Park, never been the most successful hunting ground for the Hawks. Looking forward to Wednesday to take on 3 times winners Dorking. Should be a tight game, hope weather calms down by then.

A frustrating game in many ways

The wind didn’t help at all, we did try to play football in the second half but spent the entire first half hitting a diagonal ball up to ayunga who didn’t win a header all day against the standard giants at centre half. Their goal came from a similar ball actually with a simple header from a free kick, they’d shaded the half but we didn’t really deserve to be losing

The second half with the wind was much better, our passing improved and we created lots of pressure and sone good chances, our goal came from a good driving run by straker and a nice pass from Alfie, ayunga must be the most frustrating player ever but he was in the right place to smash it home, dos and Bairdy must have shouted “jooonnnahhh” a hundred times yesterday! ;) from this point there was only one team in it and we maybe should have won it, a point away is always nice though.

Just as at Hampton the substitutions energised us, roarie deacon will be a far better winger or midfielder for us than a striker but he’s done a good job filling in, however he was a danger running at Dartford from a deeper position and hit the post with a great curling effort.

it’s good to have Alfie back, he’ll need time to get up to speed but it was quickly obvious having 2 up front gave their defence a harder challenge and they were able to create space for players such as deacon, staker and read overlapping out wide

Both teams probably happy with the point. First half was pretty dull stuff apart from their goal and then we came alive in the second half when the subs were made.

Great time watching the Dartford keeper try to kick the ball out to their wide men only for the wind to blow it off the pitch :clap:. Gave great banter to be fair, well played.

Straker MOTM.
