Vospers vs Foxhole

Recommended Posts

a poor game for any neutral watching really, not alot of football played on a greasy surface, though vospers did play some nice football at times when they settled.

foxhole played what they seemed to be best at, the long ball for there attack to run on to, and midfield to bomb through.

first goal came early on with Hoblin delivering the ball for Gill to nod in with a diving header. foxhole replied well with a typical long ball over the top for the foxhole player to run on to and was fouled clearly outside the area but the referee who proved to be highly inconsistant throught, gave a pen. from the pen foxhole struck the post and the rebound cleared away. foxhole did get an equalizer when mis-communication from vospers left the foxhole player with an easy finish from a cross into the box.

the second half vospers played better(ish) and got themselves into the lead with a good ball in the box from wayne powney for paul mellor to get his first goal of the season with a comfortable header. 5 mins from the end foxhole drove the ball outwide into the box for a foxhole player to tap in.

a poor match that should have been finished earlyer by Vospers, who welcome St Austell next wednesday

Att - 15 approx

be interesting to hear anyone elses opinon of the match from the few that were there

Vospers Oak Villa 2 Foxhole 2

Wednesday 29th April 2009

Foxhole restored some pride after recent debacles and, although they ultimately only secured a point with Adam Holland's 89th minute equaliser, they really ought to have clinched their first victory in seven games, having squandered numerous opportunities, particularly in the first half. Oak Villa went ahead within two minutes when the unmarked Gill nodded home Hoblin's cross from the right, but the Foxes replied three minutes later when Friendship's inswinging corner was cleverly headed in by Nicholls. Moments later, Butler, having been sent clear by May, was upended by Allen, but Adam Holland's penalty struck the post. Nicholls and Butler showed promising signs of developing a decent striking partnership, but unfortunately their finishing when continually finding themselves sprinting away from a defence steadfastly holding an unconvincing high line was disappointing, and Pethick remained largely untroubled. Gill was cautioned for ploughing into the back of Butler, while, just before the break, both Deadman and Mellor went close to giving the home side an undeserved lead.

The game continued to be open and entertaining in the wet conditions after the break, both teams creating chances but lacking composure when it mattered. Butler chose to pass when well-placed after outpacing Smale, and Nicholls' inviting low centre after some neat trickery was scrambled away, while Mellor was denied by the legs of the visiting keeper before, with a quarter of an hour left, substitute Long's free kick was met firmly by the head of Mellor. Led by the energetic Ansell (earlier booked for pulling back Powney) and Panter, Foxhole swarmed forward and got the reward their spirited performance warranted when Holland completed a quartet of headed goals from Prince's fine cross. There was still time for Allen to somehow escape with only a caution after a blatant shove on Nicholls, joining Powney in the book for a late challenge on Ryan Holland.

Foxhole (3-5-2): Ryan Holland 6; David Grose 6, Phil Hobbs 6, Adam Holland 6; Matt May 6 (sub. Lewis Prince 6), Kyle Friendship 6 (sub. Gary Camps 5), Scott Ansell 7, Steve Mooney 5, Steve Panter 7; Liam Nicholls 7, Andrew Butler 7.

Vospers Oak Villa (5-3-2): Paul Pethick; Aaron Maynard (sub. Wayne Powney), Scott Mansfield, Kevin Smale, Ricky Allen, James Gill; James Hoblin, Ollie Deadman (sub. Joe Long), Brett Charlick; Chris Kevern (sub. Andy Carmoysan), Paul Mellor.

Referee: Mr Dave Harding (Plymouth) 7.
