Men's 1s v Blackheath

 9th Mar 2019

20181013-M1sTeamGHC Men’s 1s were on fire against a determined Blackheath side focused on the possibility of three points to stay within reach of promotion.

Guildford scored through a clinical corner routine which Ross Fergusson dispatched into the top corner. After the opening goal there were several clear-cut chances that could have (and should have) secured a win early on, but we allowed our opposition to stay in the game and Blackheath’s relentless effort was eventually rewarded with an equaliser.

With five minutes on the clock spectators once again witnessed the character that has shaped this Guildford team. Instead of settling for a draw, we stepped up to score twice before the final whistle, through Sanderson and Matt Fitter, leaving the pitch with all three points in the bag.

Again, some excellent individual performances across the park. Jayme Crouch was excellent in goal, Sanderson and Cant worked their opposite numbers into the ground which made a massive impact on the final score line.

The last time Blackheath lost a game was against Guildford before Christmas. It would be a shame not to see these guys go up a league, they have a handful of seriously talented and experienced players.

The GHC Men’s 1s have two massive games to go in the South Prem 2. Tulse Hill and Dulwich at home this Saturday and Wycombe away next week. Both teams are worth their place near the top of the league and are working hard to secure promotion spots. The next 6 points will be hotly contested.

MoM: Jayme Crouch
