Men’s 4s Almost Force a Result

Men’s 4s played Gillingham at home on the new Romsey pitch, a fine Autumn day with a 2pm push back saw Romsey blood 3 new players and a host of u14s.

A brisk start saw Gillingham putting Romsey under a lot of pressure in the first 20 minutes of the match, fine defending from N Cooper, P O’Hara & L Suleja kept Gillingham at bay.

Gillingham were shocked and the goal was arguably against the run of play, this spurred them on and Romsey were under extreme pressure with the halftime looming , more good defending from Field , O’Hara senior and junior O O’Hara was frustrating Gillingham.

60 seconds before the halftime whistle Gillingham broke on their right and burst into the D and the attacker hit a ferocious shot into the top right hand corner. There was nothing O O’Hara could do about it.

As the second half started M Pooley started to assert himself in midfield finding D Blackman on the wing on more than one occasion. All three debutants had acquitted themselves well.

However Gillingham were quick on the counter attack and yet more strong defending from P O’Hara , N Cooper, L Suleja and Goal keeper O O’Hara kept them at bay. However it was not long before they finally made the pressure pay and scored 2-1 Gillingham!

Romsey had nothing to loose so in the last ten minutes they pushed hard for an equaliser and from a short corner C Pain sent a flick arrowing to the top left hand corner only to see the keeper make a fine save to deny him.

However it was not to be and the final score was Romsey 1-2 Gillingham

Man of the match – P O’Hara , excellent defensive performance.
