Match Report

Despite the defeat, probably our best performance of the season against a side who had thrashed us last time.

We played confident positive hockey, creating a number of opportunities. Joe Satchwell surged down the right flank several times, and without Ablard, M Griffiths took control in the middle of the park, ably abetted by the improving Beattie.

Despite being without Humpherson, the defensive triumvirate Brown, Litchfield and Ward were largely solid, forcing Shrewsbury to play excellent hockey to break us down.

Our second half goal was fully deserved, and but for an excellent performance by the keeper we may well have had a result.
