A group of Hamlet stragglers won the quiz in the bar later in the evening. Unfortunately the football did not have such a happy outcome.

Lost 2-1

A close game against a surprisingly small Billericay side , the 2 lumps at the back aside. Fairly even first with little of note although Inigo did give off a couple of hints ofthings to come with crosses being misjudged
We took the lead just after ht through new striker Graham. I was behind the stand the and didnt see it!

After that we didnt have a shot of note and conceded to a corner almost identical to every one we take and a fluffed cross that was bundled in. We also headed two off the line
We desperately need some of our injured players back but that doeant look likely for a fortnight
We played better than Monday but against a weaker side

Onward to Tuesday

Billericay 2 Hamlet 1

Hamlet were still missing all six of the injured players who missed the Leatherhead game (James, Samuels, Ottaway, Clunis, Lodge, McDonald) but were reinforced by new striker Bagasan Graham, previously with QPR, Cheltenham Town (8 Football League appearances and Chelmsford City. This was more disappointing than last Monday's defeat for me, as Leatherehead played well to defeat us whereas I didns' think Billericay looked all that good and felt they were there for the taking. If we'd had maybe three of the missing six available I think we could have turned them over. (In fairness I've no idea whether or not our opponents were at or close to full strength.)

The first half was uneventful on a poor bumpy pitch. Hamlet passed the ball well in the middle third whiel Billericay's more direct approach exerted more obvious pressure on our goal without really leading to clear chances. Our best effort of the half was a fierce 30 yard drive from Hibbert that unsettled the keeper, who shovelled it around the post for a corner. Graham had one decent chance that went just wide of the near post.

The second half began in exciting fashion as Echepare made a great save with Patterson clearing a follow up effort of the line with a spectacular flying header. Within a minute Patterson was releasing Grahm through the middle with a fine through ball and the debutant coolly drew the keeper before chipping his shot into the oppostie corner of the net. For a while we seemed comfortable defending against anything Billericay could offer, and Graham was close to doubling our lead with a downward header from a corner that flashed just wide, but after Echepare had made a brilliant diving save we conceded the equaliser from a near post corner. We might have had a penalty when an off the ball spat ended with a defender stupidly shoving Hamici to the floor while the ball was in play twenty yards aay, but understandably the officials' attention was elsewhere. By now we were looking second best and the decisive goal came when a near post cross eluded Echepare and was scrambled over the line. Billericay had one of ther substitutes sent off for a second yellow card following a crude foul on Mansaray on the far touchline, but there wasn't enough time left to take advantage. The referee added a rather skinny four minutes of stoppage time in a half that included three goals, six substitutions, two significant stoppages for treatment to injured players, several bookings and a red card as well as some blatant timewasting, notably when the dismissed player covered the seventy yards to the tunnel at the speed of a luggage-laden tourist changing platforms at a Central London tube station.

Team (4-3-3): Echepare - Kamara, Forbes, Pinnock, Gonsalves - Carew, Hibbert, Vidal - Neita, Graham, Patterson.
Subs used: Hamici (for Graham), Mansaray (for Neita), Boyle (for Carew), Hysi, Reid (not used)
Attendance: 345

Away numbers

I couldn't make this one either, odd how it fluctuates between matches. Closer than Leiston but a smaller number present although still impressive. Maybe the new grounds for some will always have more of an interest. Lets see what happens in a few years time at the third or fourth visit to some of these places.

A few might have been put off by the problems with the trains at Liverpool Street with shed loads of cancellations caused by a person hit by a train at Romford.

Yes, anyone checking travel details around midday may well have thought it too much hassle to get there with train services suspended at one point. (I was oblivious to that but I think the train I caught from Stratford at 1242 was the first one running normally after the delay.) Also we only visited Billericay in April. There were around 40 Hamlet fans behind the goal in the second half and my rule of thumb is that usually means there is likely to be a similar number of away fans along the two sides.

Yup, 70-80 I'd say...

Though it felt a bit more sparse (and certainly less noisy) behind the goal than many other recent away trips. Which I guess is just a great sign of how our away following has blossomed over the last year or so. Positive is as positive does. Let's hope the rise keeps rising...
