Match Report

Honours even between 2 sides at opposite ends of the table in a game that had a little of everything , 2 goals a sending off and an invasion of our dugout for some unknown reason by the visitors management and players.

Started game well with Callum Elms and Jon Bazley getting a grip of midfield and a succession of long throws corners and crosses rained in on the visitors goal but if honest without looking like having the desired affect and it was Keynsham who came closest to scoring when a mistake in midfield saw a loose ball smashed against our crossbar with goalkeeper Chris Snoddy well beaten.

Lost skipper Ajay Arithoppah at halftime with replacement Nick Chandler making a timely return from injury and we continued the second half on the front foot and with Man of the Match Rhys Lock giving there right back a torrid time we got our reward when the referee awarded a penalty that was confidently tucked home by the outstanding Levi Cox.

Probably needed a second to see it through and both Chandler and Robbie Tripp went close but with 2 minutes left the Keynsham substitute Sam Duggan worked himself a yard of space and volleyed home superbly from 15 yards, still time then for the same player to see Red for lashing out at Bazley and the unseemly handbags on the sidelines well handled by the Referee and his excellent Assistant, big well done to all the players and we go again on Boxing Day at local rivals Devizes Town with a 2pm kick off.
