Re: FA Cup: Leafe 1 Hastings 2
I can't agree with much of that Mark. A good FA Cup run would be high up on my list of wishes for the season. It provides great drama, a chance to visit new clubs and most importantly can add significant income to the clubs coffers. We wouldn't have the main stand behind the goal if it wasn't for the run to the 1st round proper in 1999, and anyone who was around for that run will never forget the excitement it generated.
Thought Hastings just about deserved their win today. They were stronger than us and in the end more effective. Their 2 centrebacks were immense and in Adams (8) and Sawyer (10) they had 2 of the best players on the pitch on the day IMO. We played some lovely football at times and created a number of opportunities but I can't remember the Hastings keeper having to make anything more than a straight forward save. I think we missed JTs presence in the centre of midfield but saying that he did an excellent job filling in for Dylan at the back. Also thought the ref was OK. He wasn't overly fussy and seemed content to let the game flow which made it a better spectacle. And in all honesty it was a pretty good game to watch with both sides playing football and the result being in the balance to the end.
Anyway it's back to league business on Tuesday when we play Three Bridges who thrashed 2nd placed Corinthian Casuals yesterday, 4.1. Hopefully Jensen can recover from the knock he picked up yesterday. He limped back to the changing rooms with stud marks on his ankle so must have taken a hefty hit! See you there!
