IW Saturday League, Division 1.
BRADING TOWN 2 v 2 Whitecroft & Barton FC.
( S Lawson & C Urry )
Team: Self Woodnutt Bennett Knowles Burford Lawson H Mulholland L Mulholland Oatley C Collins Vale.
Subs: C Urry, T Connor. (used) Unused: Mursell, Quigley, Payne.
A cracking and competitive game, with no quarter given, tho both sides were very lucky to finish with 11 men. Rayner, as early as the 3rd minute (tackle )..Newnham (foul language to the ref) and Liam Mulholland (stamp).
Brading twice took the lead but W&B were determined to take a point at least. Over all a draw was a fair result. Josh Appell (W&B) had a very good game, as did Scott Lawson for the Romans. Both sides should be congratulated, best game seen down the “Lane” for a good while. The midfield battle was a pleasure to watch.
The men from Sandy Lane will take some beating this season, a solid and strong side, who can play good football all over the pitch.
Referee: Mr. Paul Phillips 65/100.
Brading Town Man of the Match: SCOTT LAWSON.
