Come on you Reds!
League cup Boro 4 W&F 4
Saw Boro edged out 8-7 tonight on penalties after an exciting 4-4 draw at the end of normal time.
On a swelteringly warm evening at Earlsmead the match I thought was played at a pretty fast tempo. Two goals each from MCS and Ibrahim Meite for Boro in a game that swung from end to end and was great entertainment. Meite I thought had an outstanding game.
Boro had Samuel Charles sent off late on, then it was straight on to penalties.
Both sides took excellent pens until the unfortunate Babalola's pen hit the bar and bounced back on the line and out (where's a Russian linesman when you want one!!!)
Oh well thats football I guess. Uxbridge next. . . . . . . .
. Looks like we won after all !
I know I shouldn't have got worked up over those penalties. . . . . . . . .

Re: . Looks like we won after all !
We nearly always lose to Wingate & Finchley (apart from the time we put 5 past them during our great escape) so maybe registration errors are the only way we can beat them!
League Cup Staines 3 Boro 4
A really enjoyable match to watch . Some fantastic goals. Some very encouraging performances by a few players that have not been starting recently. A welcome return of Will Turl. Harry Newman terrorised the home right back. George Nicholas's passing looked far better, Good shifts from Barima, Bryan & Brown.Lewis Driver was class & when replaced by the the Shark Meite only numerous fouls stopped Boro from scoring more.
