Gwin 4-2 west Cornwall
Cracking performance and result against a very decent side with a scratch side out which made it even sweeter.
Great team performance from my boys. Every one of them played out of their skin. Went 2-0 up and cruising with decent goals from Bijan Akbari and a great finish from Barney Dagger; but with west Cornwall having 5 subs their fresh legs and substitutes worked well. They came back to make it 2-2.
Recently with our performances I thought we were gunna blow it and lose the match. But the boys dug in deep and a goal from Marcus Bawden restored the lead. Then with minutes to go a breakaway goal started with a great through ball from Dagger to put Akbari through who skinned his marker then dink over the keeper.
Most important thing from the match was that the boys fought for each other and enjoyed it rather than putting too much pressure on themselves. Was a joy to watch.
Man of Match - Barney Dagger, showed everyone what he is capable off and looked the player he was a few years ago before his injury.
Cracking day for us, leads us onto title favorites Ruan Minor away next week!!
