Vectis FC Res v Sandown FC Res, pre-season friendly, Sat 15 Aug 2020 – match report
Sandown Reserves faced their second friendly of preseason at home to Vectis Reserves, with cooler conditions this week the boys were cool and composed.
As the first half got underway the boys lost some composure and missed a few opportunities, something they were quick to realise.
A drinks break regained this composure and the boys focussed on working hard, pushing through and working as a team to capture every chance.
Ball control became sharp and the team really began to put all their hard work training into play.
The small pitch meant footwork and control had to be gold standard and top work was made by the boys.
The first goal came from Monty (1) as Sandown reacted to a save from Vectis, the quick reaction saw a great outcome putting Sandown in the lead.
Half time came and the team headed back out with their head held high carrying the lead as the second half began.
The second half brought more competition from Vectis as they fought to gain possession and equalised! Sandown were determine to react and pushed continually to hold the ball and bring back their lead. Bleach (1) captured that chance with a cracking volley to hold their heads high once again as they lead the game again.
The game much continued in this fashion with both teams fighting for the ball and providing some excellent football to watch.
As the game came to an end Sandown maintained their lead and ended the game on a 2-1 win.
A great result as the league games draw closer and Sandown Reserves continue to develop. The team are quickly becoming a strong unit and are working hard to create many positives to come from each game!
MOTM Sam Coe a great performance!
