Not much interest on here about our opening day win, which was at least our fourth in a row, possibly fifth as I don't recall who we played on the first day in 2010.

With five new signings in the starting XI and places for a couple of players who weren't regulars last season it was a bit of an unfamiliar looking Hamlet side, but they absolutely battered Harrow for the first twenty minutes, going two goals ahead before the visitors even managed an attack, and frankly it wouldn't have flattered us if we'd had three or four by that stage. I missed the first goal after four minutes as I was still buying a programme, thanks to a 176 bus driver operating his vehicle at the speed of a milk float and pausing at every request stop even when nobody wanted to get on or off, but Samuels apparently passed the ball into teh bottom corner from the edge of the box. Samuels was also the second scorer, this time aiming a beautifully struck shot from the left hand corner of the box inside the far post.

I felt we'd begun to look a little complacent towards half time, and when James & Lodge both departed early in the second half, the latter following an appalling foul, Harrow came much more into the game. I thought the referee had an excellent game and can't recall any errors or even dubious decisions, but he really should have shown the Harrow number 6 a straight red card for serious foul play. This was the consensus of opinion from various Hamlet fans on all sides of the ground. It was a late and dangerous challenge, nowhere close to playing the ball, their player's whole body language screamed "I'm going to 'do' this bloke". Harrow pulled one back midway through the half when their centre forward turned inside on the edge of the box and beat the advancing Wilson with a perfect chip shot. It wasn't long before the two goal lead was restored when Hamici was played in to the right of goal and hammered a fierce rising shot in off the far post. However Harrow responded again with a second goal, one of their substitutes firing into the far corner from a wide angle on the left, but although the pressed hard for an equaliser Hamlet held out.

Team (4-3-3): Wilson - Kamara, Forbes(c), Pinnock, Patterson - Carew, James, Samuels - Lodge, Hamici, Clunis.
Subs used: Hibbert, Neita, Vidal.
Attendance: 607
