Croydon 2 fail to overcome a strong Trojans side

Croydon 2 entertained Trojans at Royal Russell in the first league fixture of the new season.
Croydon resisted the temptation to field 1st team players, playing Andy Withers, Nigel Hudpsith, Tammy Kentfield and Julia Johnson in attack with Nick Collier, Dan Moore, Lynda Barker and Mandy Furlano in defence. Moore was making the step up as Paul Jeanes was away on International Refereeing duty. Trojans for their part bolstered their team with a few 1st teamers including the influential Tom Brady.



The first half was a low scoring affair with defences clearly on top, Trojans were up 4-3 at half time. The 2nd half was more open with goals going in on a regular basis for both sides. With the game evenly posied, Trojans sought refuge in the further substitutions as Kerry Sargeant was brought into the attack. She added some additional passing power to their attack and the consequence was a rash of penalties conceded of which 2 out of 3 were converted by Brady.

With 10 minutes remaining, Croydon made their own subtitution replacing new-comer Kentfield with Suzanne Robinson. Despite a late comback from Croydon it was not to be as Trojans wound down the clock and won 12-10.

Croydon 3 draw with Nomads

Croydon 3 managed to snatch a draw from the jaws of victory against Nomads. In a closely competed match in which the lead changed hands several times, a long shot from Dave Bond stole the show and a share of the points in the final few minutes with a score of 9 all.

Croydon 4 take a pasting from Bec 3

Croydon 4 were boosted by some senior players but failed to take advantage as Bec's greater organisation and superior passing told in the end. Bec won 13 - 4 despite a first ever league goal from newbie Leanna Burley.
