Comber Rec

The comber rec players made the trip to grove playing fields for this 3rd round cup match against a ST MARYS TEAM from the 1st division . A step up for the comber players but one that they where all looking forward to.

With a fully fit Squad available for selection the management team where hoping that the rec lads could pull off a great victory .

Upon arrival at the pitches the rec players where informed that both teams where at the wrong venue a mix up by the league ,both sets of players had to pack up and move to the grounds of Grove United F.C hardly ideal preparations before a cup tie .

Upon arrival at the new venue there was a further delay as the teams who where on before where not finished with the changing rooms .

The Rec took to the pitch playing there usual 4-5-1 formation ,playing conditions at the start of the match where quite windy with rain moving in later in the game .

The referee got the match underway and right from the start the rec players tried to stamp there authority on the game with plenty of movement on and off the ball ,10 mins in and sadayu fires one over the crossbar if only he had got his head over the ball . Another falls to sadayu with the keeper making a good save ,another chance this time to captain Matty Gibson very unlucky with his shot that whistles past the post .

The rec had started the stronger of the 2 teams surely it as only a matter of time before we got 1st goal 23 mins in and against the run of play the ref awards st marys a penalty for a deliberate hand ball against captain Matty sore toes Gibson who couldnít get out of the way of the ball it was more ball to hand than hand to ball ,up steps the st marys penalty taker to put the ball wide of keeper big Tom lappin who almost got his hand to it 1-0 to st marys harsh to say the least . Play continues with the rec trying to get back into the game but guilty of missing some great chances meanwhile at the back the recs defence where comfortable in dealing everything the st marys team was throwing at them . 37 mins in and itís a corner to st marys the balls floated over with keeper big Tom lappin in 2 minds whether to come for the ball unfortunately due to poor communication between the players this allows the st marys forward to run into the box unchallenged to plant his header into the net 2-0 to st marys.

The rec continue to press forward with greater urgency to try and pull a goal back midfield maestro luke Johnston along with the enforcer that is Jonny Jackson working tirelessly in midfield .

As halftime approaches the beast from the east Alex Hamilton slides in with one of his trademark tackles to prevent an attack on goal ,meanwhile wee Benjamin Hamilton and farmer joe ,Owen John gill playing at fullbacks where constantly pushing up the line to try and bolster an attack on goal the ref blows up to bring the half to an end with the halftime score of ST MARYS. 2. V COMBER REC 0 .

The 2nd half gets under way with the rec still very. Much in the game if only they could pull a quick goal back the rec playing from right to left are putting the st marys back 4 under pressure ,10 mins in and itís time for a change the rec withdraw sadayu jack who could easily have had a hat trick with some better finishing .Sadayu is replaced by the kebab king Cameron Haslam hopefully the change could pull a much needed goal back.

Play continues with the doc Callum McKay stretching the st marys back 4 ,the Ball from Callum McKay finds its way through to the sub Cameron who fires a shot into the net past the stunned keeper GOALLLLL 2-1 to st marys.

Play continues Callum McKay fires a shot that flyís past the post unlucky for the doc it could so easily have found its way into the net . Totally against the run of play the rec are unable to clear there lines and the st marys midfielder nips in to put the ball past keeper big Tom lappin . 3-1 to ST marys.

Time for put an extra attacker on Adam bestie Martin makes way for sadayu jack switching to a 4-3-3 formation to try and rescue the game sadly for the rec players the last goal seems to have knocked the stuffing out of them .

Team Tom lappin Benjamin Hamilton. Reuben Lennon Alex Hamilton. Owen John gill Jonny Jackson Matty Gibson capt Luke Johnston. Callum McKay Adam Martin Sadayu jack

Man of the match . Benjamin Hamilton improving week by week a steady ,solid performance at full back .

The referee blows up to bring the match to an end a match that the rec should and could have won with little more finesse with there finishing plenty of positives in a good game of football match ended with a final score of .
