First Home Game at Locks Ride
This Saturday saw the start of Braybrooke's competitive season, a cup game at home to Windsor Great Park.
Braybrooke got off to the perfect start, a pass back from a Windsor CB under pressure from David Dodds led their goalkeeper missing the ball entirely and trickling into the back of the net.
Dodds had an apparently genuine goal disallowed, considering the ball had travelled back towards him, before Windsor equalised due to some slack Braybrooke defending.
Braybrooke poked their noses ahead once more due to some great work from Gregory, beating 6 men before putting the ball on a plate for Cheto to score from within a yard, a chance even he couldn't miss.
Our midfield dominated throughout the first half with strong performances from the 3 boys in the centre, H Levey, Gregory and Smith and Braybrooke went into half-time 2-1 up.
Cheto had a great chance right at the beginning of the second half following some great work from Dodds, unfortunately blazing over from around 15 yards out.
This set the tone for Braybrooke's second half. Within a matter of minutes after the chance Braybrooke conceded to make it 2-2. Legs began to give way all over the pitch, allowing Windsor to begin to run rings around us.
2 goals from Windsor followed, with the midfield and defence simply being run over due to lack of fitness and lack of substitutes. It was a shame after a strong first half showing, but we simply need to boost our squad as well as improve our fitness. Not a bad start to the season, but one we can definitely improve upon.
MOTM is a hard choice as the midfield 3 were solid and played extremely well. Genga was solid at the back and Dodds worked extremely hard up top.
As the 2015/16 season looms, changes around the club have been made thick and fast. New manager James Terrence Richardson has gone into his first backroom role, after glimpses of excellent tactical nouse last season as a player. After a player exodus at the end of last year, the squad has been reformed and looks ready to take on the challenges that come with moving up a division. Braybrooke begin their season with a cup game against Windsor Great Park, hoping to get the ball rolling on what should be a fruitful season.
