Eagle 1-2 Seneley & Garswood C

Garswood go into this fixture with lots of confidence from last weeks performance.

As usual a very close contest between these two sides. Nothing much in it for the first 20 mins, both sides playing well and creating chances, then a slip at the back lets Eagles centre forward in as he shoots from outside the box. He miskicks the ball to a player in an offside position, who slots the ball past Callum for the second week in a row. Very frustratingly the goal stands 1-0 to Eagle. The game continues very tight to half time.

Garswood get 2nd half under way, determined to write the bad decision off and really get stuck in. Both teams continue to play well when at 45 mins Ethan Miller picks up the ball ten yards outside the box. He takes on the defender and beats him into the box and slots the ball past the keeper. A superb individual goal 1-1.

Eagle come back strong. Callum Eden makes some good saves to keep it level. Also Declan Livesley and Charlie Eatock make brilliant tackles inside the box to keep Eagle out. Garswood ride their luck as Eagle strike the crossbar on 55 mins. The match is evenly balanced, then Garswood begin to pressure the Eagle goal. First with a good chance for Danny Fitzpatrick from a pass from Ethan Miller, then a shot from Connor Locklin just over the bar. Garswood continue to press winning a corner.

Ethan Miller catches Eagle asleep at the back, passes the ball short to Connor who takes a touch and puts in a great cross straight onto Wesley Spencer’s head, on the penalty spot. A brilliant brave header from Wesley. 2-1 on 62 mins.

The last 8 minutes are end to end as Eagle try to get one back. A very exciting game with the right final result. Excellent efforts from all the team especially Wesley Spencer, Keiran Lackey, and Callum Eden in goal, who was Man of the Match. Well Done lads, you deserved it!!!!

Garswood 2-2 Appleton B

Game started at a fast pace on a wet pitch and still raining. Garswood have a good first 15 mins going close twice and eventually Wesley Spencer gets the opening goal on 20 mins, from a good team build up and a final pass into the box by Ethan Miller.

Appleton respond going close from kick off, but Garswood stay focused. End to end for 10 mins. Apleton score on 30 mins 1 -1. Both keepers make good saves to keep it 1-1 ar half time.

Second half continues a very close contest, then on 45 mins Appleton score a clear offside goal. Very disappointing for Garswood who were the best team upto this point. They get on with it and score a goal which clearly crosses the line but the ref. was too far away to be sure and doesnt give it. Another very disappointing decision.

Garswood continue to press eventually scoring on 60 mins. Wesley Spencer getting his second from a great free kick into the box from Connor Locklin.

Garswood continue to play well. Chances at both ends on 65 mins Ethan Miller shoots and the ball gets stuck in the mud 2 feet off the goal line. Any other day it would have been a goal.

Both Goalkeepers continue to play well making very good saves.

Great game, very close. Garswood deserved the win but wasnt to be be.

All the team were excellent. Well Done Everyone!

Man of the match – Craig Gough.

Strong performances by Kieran Lackey in centre midfield and Charlie Eatock at centre back. Also Wesley Spencer(C) was excellent up front.

Well Done to Callum Eden in goal, who kept us in it twice in the first Half.

Woolston 6-2 Garswood

The game started as usual at a fast pace with good spells of football from both sides. Woolston opened the scoring with a long range slot from outside the box, on 15 mins, giving Callum in goal no chance.

Garswood replied straight away with a great move from midfield involving Connor Locklin and Ethan Miller ending in Wesley Spencer slotting the ball into the bottom corner. Garswood continued with lots of pressure in all areas of the pitch, Ethan Miller getting their second, to go 1 – 2 on 25 mins, with a neat lob over the keeper after a great pass from Connor.

Both teams were well up for this game, and both went close to scoring, testing the keepers. Woolston finally equalized  one min before half time, again with a long range shot. 2 – 2 at half time.

Second half a good contest, Much the same as the first. Woolston score to go ahead on 45 mins and get another 5 mins later. Garswood start to look tired but keep working hard. Excellent efforts from Charlie Eatock and Kieran Lackey keep Woolston out. Ethan goes very close twice, just getting knocked off the ball in the box. Connor wins free kick on the edge of the box, which goes just over the bar. Woolston get a goal with a breakaway down the left to make it 5 – 2, and put the game out of Garswoods reach. They score again with 5 mins left to make final score 6 – 2.

A great game played in the right spirit. 2nd in league against the bottom. A very close contest considering the result. Well Done Garswood lads. Very proud of you. All great effort and attitude. Keep playing the way you are, first win is coming.

Man of the match ; Dylan Robinson, who never put a foot wrong all game. Great efforts by Charlie, Keiran, Connor, Wesley, Ethan and Tom.

Cromwell B 1-6 Garswood U14 A

Garswood were chasing their 4th win of the season but got off to the worst possible start when they conceded a well taken goal after 5 minutes as Cromwell took a deserved lead. This sparked Garswood into life and after a number of missed chances and outstanding saves by the Cromwell goalie Grant finally put them level after a through ball by Quinny which the Cromwell defender sliced into his path and he lobbed it into the net. Garswood kept the pressure on Cromwell who were struggling to get out of their own half by now and it was only a matter of time before they added a second. It came through right midfielder Ben Whittle who got on the end of a cross from the left by Grant, he struck it first time and wrong footed the goalie to put Garswood into a deserved 2-1 half time lead.

The second half started as the first finished with Garswood totally dominating and 10 minutes in, a great ball from the left from Mike found Patrick in the box who brought it down and fired it in for his second goal of the season, it wasn`t long till the outstanding Grant Pilling got his 5th goal in 3 games after he put it in at the second attempt, the Cromwell goalie saved his first attempt but he followed it in and finished from a tight angle. It was the two subs who finished the scoring with new signing Leon Rosa getting his first for the club after another diagonal ball from the very impressive Mike Tinsley. He controlled well and rifled it into the bottom corner to make it 5-1. Jamie Mcquade finished the scoring with a nice piece of skill to beat the last defender and smashed a great left foot drive into the roof of the net to complete one of the most oustanding peformances I have witnessed as Garswood manager. We need to keep this up over the next 3 weeks as we are playing the 3 teams above us WELL DONE LADS!

Garswood U14 A 5-0 East Leigh

Aaron Hurst misses open goal from three yards.Charlie Eatock has a brilliant run down the left wing and puts the ball just wide. Garswood’s fourth goal was scored by Connor Locklin and what a goal,best of the match.Great build up from midfield sets him up shoots from twenty five yards streight in top right corner.

Final score 14-4 a bitter pill to swallow but as always the boys walked off the pitch with heads held high having played the match in the spirit of the game.

Man of the match was Tom Wareing who played right back first half and left back second. Also Callum Eden made some great saves in goal despite conceding fourteen goals most of which he had no chance.

Also very good performances by Kieran Lackey and Wesley Spencer. On the day Garswood were beaten by a much bigger and fitter squad of players and the score doesn’t reflect the game.

Eagle 0-4 Garswood U14 A

Lewis 2, Grant, Jamie

Garswood got back to winning ways after 2 defeats with their best performance of the season to date.

The scoring started after 50 seconds virtually straight from the kick off after some neat play superbly finished by Lewis Reilly.  The second was soon to follow on 13mins as Ben Whittle crossed from the right to Grant on the edge of the box who had a couple of touches and beat the keeper on his near post and that’s how the first half finished.

The 2nd half started as the 1st finished with Garswood on top of a tough encounter, Grant had a good chance 1 v 1 with the keeper but somehow managed to hit both posts and miraculously the ball ended up back in the keepers hands but Eagle were dangerous on the break and but for an outstanding save from Josh in the Garswood goal Eagle could have been back in the game.

Just after that there was a scramble in the Eagle penalty box and the ball broke to Jamie Jackson who rifled a shot into the far corner of the Eagle net 3-0 but Garswood weren’t finished there.

Lewis struck a fierce shot that the Eagle keeper couldn’t hold and it ended up in the net for his 3rd goal in 2 games, Lewis was unlucky not to get his hat trick right at the end after good work by Jamie Mcquade and Grant who laid it back to Lewis who just blasted over .Overall it was a great all round team performance against a good battling team with Quinny and Mike Tinsley outstanding in midfield.

WELL DONE LADS LETS KEEP IT UP
