First 3 - 0 Hedge End Rangers

Away | 08 September 2018
Today we had a break from league action when we travelled to a well known Hedge end Rangers, who although have had a tough time of late have strengthened with some good signings.

As the leagues would suggest, we dominated the ball in the early parts of the game and worked the ball in to good areas without any real conviction at the end of the moves as well as the linesmans flag becoming a 5th defender at times.

Hedge end were not without their good moments in the opening exchanges attempting to play when they had the  ball but the dead lock was broken on 17 minutes from a corner. Debutant Jack Waters delivered a dangerous cross which was met by Josh Cripps but well blocked, only then for Josh to sweep the ball in while on the floor, 1-0.

There was a definite slump in Hedge ends body language after the goal and we continued to cause problems, particularly down the right via another debutant Mathew Camfield and forced the Hedge end stopper into some good saves as well as waste some very good chances, but for Mitch Fears goal line header we would have went into the break level after a wonder strike from the young Hedge End forward.

If we thought Hedge end would just roll over at the restart we were very wrong, Simon Parker made a magnificent save low to his left when the Hedge End target man turned well and fired his shot off from 20 yards which was goal bound but for a great save.

This was a wake up call and we got back into our rhythm moving the ball quickly which created a chance for Matt Camfield to slot Josh Oxlade in who finished low to the keepers right at the second attempt, 2-0.

Hedge end rallied, kept battling and again came close to netting with a great header but was exceptionally kept out by Simon Parker.

The game was still keenly contested by Hedge End who showed good character but was put beyond doubt on 90 mins when 86th minute substitute Jamie White finished clinically, low inside the left post, 3-0.
