Men’s 3s Nearly Blown Off Course at Wrexham!

Humour me if you will when I mention sick feelings in stomachs and fear and trepidation when we mixed in a trip to North Wales with storms battering the UK. What we found when we got there could only be described as a Christmas Day afternoon in a veggie household with only sprouts on the menu and no more wood to put on the fire.

So – cold and windy it was, but that did not stop Sefton taking to the field early despite warnings of showers (water based pitch rather than meteorologic concerns). The nice men at Wrexham thought better of this, given that the wind direction meant that Mold and Chester were more likely to get most of the water, so we got going and generally it was a very end to end game with both teams creating chances throughout the whole match. Sefton got the first goal through an extended short corner. By extended, I mean first flick at goal, a two-minute goal mouth scramble, and me thankfully putting the ball into the net to put an end to the primary school scramble. But their umpire thought better and wanted to check if there were any fouls and if it was the first strike at goal. Basically, I think he got bored!

The pendulum kept swinging during the second half, and Wrexham’s goal came from a little scrappy play in our D with someone sweeping the ball home.

Both teams had chances to win it, Sefton gaining a short corner on the whistle, and for the only time in his career possibly, Sam Ritchings had a shot at goal, but he put it wide.The pendulum kept swinging during the second half, and Wrexham’s goal came from a little scrappy play in our D with someone sweeping the ball home.

1-1 in the end, but with a full strength team, this could have easily been a comfortable win for Sefton given the opposition. A midfield-heavy formation kept touching over, and Joe Lewis picked up man of the match with a solid game on the right hand side.

Oh, and Oxton 5s lost so we climb one place to 4th, a good start to 2015
