Shinfield Rangers 5 Sandhurst Town Rovers 1
Millworth Lane

The scoreline would suggest an easy win for the Rangers, but were made to work hard for the result.

Rangers were a little lacklustre in the first half but produced some stunning passing moves in the second half. Ethan had a great game, breaking up the Sandhurst attacks, and doing excellent work tracking back. Joe and Ben both played extremely well, these boys who only joined at the start of the season but look as if they have always been part of the team. Will as is becoming the norm, popped up with five goals (superlatives are quickly running out for this boy). Luke produced some excellent moves running with the ball from deep and sending some probing passes through to split the defence. Ashmin and Ask are growing in stature with each game and form a formidable partnership at the back. And with Josh now starting to add an end product to his penetrating runs, he gets better with each game. That leaves only Jzsiah who once again was a study in concentration and reliability minding the nets. The improvements this boy has made in the early part of the season are truly astonishing.

But in truth Sandhurst put up an excellent performance and showed some excellent football ability. The Sandhurst number eleven and Slyvia showed some great composure on the ball. Sandhurst played with a smile on their faces which is how the game should be played.

As for the Rangers, if the boys continue to put in the hard work they will only get better as a team.
