I think I've seen worse games than this, but not many come to mind! Still, end of season, nothing to play for and Cavs resting their 1st team so they are fresh for their NSL Cup Final on Thursday, what did I expect?
Took a few arty-farty pics, and was poised to take a few of the game, but after 20 minutes I put the camera away and had a chat with Brian Dennett. He made a few predictions about which Carlton Town players will follow Tommy Brookbanks to Hucknall - I will keep the list and check it out prior to the new season starting.
Ought to have known what was to come when the Cavs manager said "if you don't beat us tonight, you never will " to the Welfare manager! It looked a good shout as after 10 minutes the home team were 2-0 up through their no. 9 Jake Fisher, and no. 11 Reece Bertram.
No. 11 ready to pounce on the loose ball to net the second goal
Should have been 3-0 on 18 when the Cavs keeper bundled the Bertram over in the box. Straight forward? No ! The ball was passed from the spot (!!) to Bertram who blazed it hopelessly high, wide and not very handsome from 8 yards out!
2-0 at the break - went for a sit down and endured a further 27 minutes without a goal until sub Ryan Docherty tapped in from close range after the Cavs defence failed to deal with a corner played into the six-yard box. F-T 3-0
Luckily, no-one had blocked me in so first out of the ground and home 10 minutes after the final whistle.
