Buckingham United's B Team came into todays game on the back of a 3 game winning streak, scoring 15 goals in that time. The team lined up with Frankey Tarrant in goal, a back four of Alex Bush, the Captain John Wescott, Jacob Field and Luke McAndrew. Midfield was made up of Dan McAndrew and 'Subo' with Henry Jones sat infront. Olly Watts started up top with Matt Carr and Gregsy either side of him on the wings.
United started the game well, dominating possession and pulling apart Newton Leys' defence and midfield. 5 star skiller Matt Carr beat his full back with a cheeky nutmeg then unleashed a shot towards the oppositions keeper who could only parry it into the path of the onrushing Subo to tap in from 4 yards. The B's carried on dominating the game and kept creating chances, the McAndrew brothers showed great skill to work together with a series of 1-2's to set Matt Gregory on his way only for him to fire just over the cross bar. Frankey Tarrant struck a monster goal kick over the oppo's defence allowing Matt Carr to run through on goal only to miss and place him in contention for the dreaded donkey shirt. Against the run of play Newton Leys scored to equalise, their Right Winger cut inside to create enough space for a shot low into the bottom corner of the B teams goal. This goal gave Newton Leys a spring in their step and the game became closer all across the pitch. United fought hard and got another goal before HT, Luke McAndrew with a great header knocked the ball to Matt Carr, who beat one defender before firing home with a bullet shot from the edge of the 18 yard box leaving the keeper stood like a statue. at HT manager Ash Peacock chose to bring himself and Damian Fallon into the fold for Henry Jones and Matt Gregory. The game started and the B team again were on top, winning challenges and keeping the ball well. A long ball over the top of the United Defence appeared to be collected by Goalkeeper but Frankey's butterfingers slipped and he fumbled the ball into the opposition strikers path, whilst attempting to win the ball back he was adjudged to have fouled their player in the box and was sent off and a penalty given away. Subo quickly changed into the 'keepers shirt and took his place in goal for the penalty. He stared the Newton Leys player in the soul and read which way he was placing the ball, diving heroically to his left hand side he got a big farmer hands to the ball and parried it safely away for a corner. At this point the B's knew they'd all need to put a shift in to see this game out with 10 men. Henry Jones came back on for Matt Carr at Left Wing and made an instant impact, running past his man and firing the ball across the 6 yard box for Poacher Damian Fallon to smash the ball home in typical fashion. Henry Jones was again involved in play, floating in a great corner for John Hinson who'd leapt well but couldn't head it goalwards, instead directing it towards an oppo player who fortunately scored an own goal. Henry then decided he wanted a goal of his own, picked up the ball in his own half from Dan McAndrew and ran 25 yards towards the Newton Leys box where he struck a thunderbolt into the top right hand corner of the goal setting the net on fire! Some are already calling it goal of the season!
The B team play in the Bucks and Berks Cup next week against the unknown Aylesbury Fushion.
