What difference a week makes. A reasonably comfortable win over the molehill men. Binstead’s defence were unable to cope with Vale and Day. Vale was pushed for the MOM award by young Matt Oatley, who improves with every game. Despite injuries in the squad, Brading were able to call on players such as James Woodhouse, who dealt with the threat of Younie with some ease, penalty aside. A mention for Brose, who may have done better with COB’s first goal, one particular moment in the 2nd half, saw him pull off a spectacular save.
Danny Vale hit his 30th goal of the season so far. The 4th or 5th consecutive season that he has managed this achievement. Veteran Elliott Day hit his 2oth so far, taking their joint tally so far to 50 goals.
A mention for a very poor referee’s performance……..me, me, me!! Out of position for almost the entire game, behind play for most of the game and yards away from most incidents.
To finish on a good point, a pleasure to see Martyn RAGGETT of Binstead COB, now in his mid 40’s and a shining example to many of the players half his age and younger, commitment. Still playing 3 games a week!!! Enjoy playing against him, as 20 years ago, most wouldn’t be fit enough to be on the same pitch, fact!!! Well done fella, hope the groin injury is short??
