Match Report



Charlie Gregan (1)

Scott Church (1)

Sat 21 Feb, 2015




Star player: Adam Payne

Earls Hall United Res'

This was another good win for BKS Sports, even though for the second week running we were short of numbers.  Half an hour before kick-off we had to draft in young Adam Payne from our Reserve Team but he put in a great performance at right centre back and was duly voted man of the match at the clubhouse after an excellent debut.


We stared the match very well and immediately got on top of Earls Hall with some excellent passing and possession football.  Our opening goal came after just 10 minutes when good passing on the edge of the box culminated with Jason Venner slipping a forward pass into Scott Church who finished with a well struck shot form eight yards out.  We doubled our lead ten minutes later when Charlie Gregan scored a similar goal to Scott’s; a neat finish from close range after more good passing and a final ball from Jason.  Earls Hall had a good spell of possession in the final ten minutes of the half but we defended well and Colin remained untroubled in our goal.


It has to be said that our play was not as good in the second half; we seemed to run out of steam a little while Earls Hall had a large number of substitutes and were able to continually freshen up their team.  The quality of passing and retention of the ball that we showed in the first half was not as evident and consequently Earls Hall had the majority of possession.  We made up for the dip in quality however by working extremely hard and although Earls Hall had the majority of possession Colin only had to make a couple of memorable saves as our defensive work was outstanding.  At the other end of the pitch we nearly extended our lead with ten minutes of the match remaining when we hit the frame of the goal twice and drew a great save from the keeper in a massive goal mouth scramble.  Final score – 2-0 to us and well deserved.
