Having to play 3 games at home in the last 4 days, has done the pitch the world of good.!!!
What the rush was I fail to see, In May, we play our last 2 games over 2 weeks!!!
A winner in the 91st minute, won a very close, equal game…. for the Yachtsmen.
Well done to youngster Sam Cant, who was making his first, 1st team start. Sam fully deserving his MOM award….this after a very good season with the “A” team. Also in the squad, were youngsters Woodburn and Page, who have also performed well with the Reserve and “A” teams respectfully.
May I thank all at Shanklin FC for their assistance, after Luke sustained a nasty injury during last night’s fixture at the County Ground. The club and players were superb, I would like to thank them for their help.
Luke has ruptured ankle tendons and ligaments, the full extent won’t be known until he goes back into hospital this Friday, for further tests. He is currently in plaster and in need of pain relief.
We at Brading FC, wish him a speedy recovery, we also wish to thank the players and officials of Shanklin, for their kind words and messages of support for Luke, that I have personally received.
Sadly, this result and display was marred by a bad injury to Luke Hitchcox…”itchy” was taken to hospital by ambulance. It appears he has ruptured his ankle ligaments and tendons. Sad news for “itchy” who has come thro the Colts system at Brading and into the 1st team, where he is a popular member of the club….boing boing!!! Chin up Luke…..from all down the “Lane”…..
After a poor 1st half performance, a very young Romans side were much improved in the 2nd period. With several 16 year olds in the side, Brading were given a tough lesson in the first 45 mins, by a strong Northwood side.
