Men's 1st XI Win v Bournemouth

 29th Sep 2017

New season, new faces, new coach (now player/coach), let's see what the first League match brought...


Guildford 3 (Madsen 3) - Bournemouth 2

We started our first League game with optimism and it was justified as we had a great first half.

Three goals before the interval all scored on his debut by young South African Matt Madsen. 

The forward line played with pace and generally we looked comfortable at the back with player/coach Gary Boucher being a calming influence.

His wise words at half time proved to be appropriate as Bournemouth came at us strongly and we rather sat back a bit. The visitors scored twice and the last ten minutes were a bit nail-biting but we hung on.

Ollie Church in goal had a great game and made some important saves. Well done to the whole squad.
