Final Defeat Ends Pre-Season

Saturday 10 August 2019 - 9:51 pm | Added by: Ian Pluck to First Team, Club News | |

Following a 3-1 defeat last week against Isthmian League Hanwell Town, the Ducks travelled to the Acretweed Stadium to face Northwood FC in their final pre-season match.

The hosts took the lead in just the 3rd minute; after Derek Feyi was adjudged to have committed a foul on the left edge of the penalty area, Matt Cooper clipped a free kick into the 6-yard box where centre forward Harry Lodovica rose unchallenged to head home to open the scoring.

The first half was an even affair, although for all their precise passing in the midfield, there was no incision in the final third.  Whenever the ball did find its way forward to Ken Feyi, the striker often found himself isolated and without support.

In the 53rd minute, the Woods doubled their lead.  This time a corner from Cooper was met by centre back Imran Uche to beat Hopwood from 10 yards, again relatively unchallenged.  A third goal arrived in the 70th minute, as a cross from the right was half cleared by Greg Williams, only as far as Ludovica, who fired home his second of the game from 20 yards.

The Ducks pulled one back with virtually the last play of the game; a through ball from Ken Feyi found Harry Jones, who accelerated past Copper to finish with style from just inside the penalty area.

On now to the first match of the season, at home against Corby Town next Saturday.  Manager Ben Williams will have food for thought as he reflects on the pre-season programme as he prepares the squad for the matches to come.
