IW Saturday League, Div 1.

stars1 Ventnor 2 v 1 BRADING TOWN.

( Lomas )

Team: Payne Jake Younie Bennett Keetch Knowles Oatley Burford Collins O Wilson Vale Lomas.

Subs: Connor, T Trundle, Hitchcox.

Referee: Mr. Ron Groves.

Brading Town Man of the Match: Caymen COLLINS.

Ventnor grabbed their winner with 10 minutes to go, we now await the result of their game with Champions W&B on Wednesday, to see where we finish up.

A much improved performance from us hinged on missed chances and two poorly conceded goals !

2 disallowed goals didn’t help matters….. but we definitely deserved something from the game.

A frustrating season! It was the start that really put us under pressure, with 3 draws in the first 6 games. The run of 11 straight wins after losing at Shanklin was a superb effort from the lads and put us right in the mix …..we were at one point, 9/10 points behind W&B!

The draw with Binstead, was seen to be the key game that put us under pressure, we responded superbly by beating Shanklin 1-0.

Defeat followed at W&B, when they turned in a outstanding performance and then today’s narrow defeat.

Ventnor have been a thorn in our sides this season – the only side we haven’t beaten and we’ve also gone out of three cups at the Lions Den.

All in all, a huge improvement on last season – we have won more games and finished at worse 3rd.

First season in a while that we’ve been unbeaten at home…..the 3 defeats this season have come against top 4 sides.

Thanks to all connected at the club for their hard work this season, always grateful for that and to Mark Cook for assisting me this year. He’s been superb and the lads have really taken to him.

Huge thanks to the players for their efforts. At times we been superb this year – West Wight in the cup, W&B and Shanklin at home were the highlights.

If we can all stick together and add a few new faces , a year older and more experienced who knows what next season could bring.
