We went away to Basford United in the Notts Youth Premier League.
AFC started strongest, moving the ball well and dominating possession. 20 mins in from a set piece Arron Stafford heads the ball from the back post into the net.
Despite lots of chances we failed to build on our possession and we suffered a quick counter attack down our right flank and conceded an equaliser on 40 mins, going in at half-time 1-1.
Second half started and we were second to the ball and struggled with Basford’s out and out pace.
We went down 3-1 with some decent counter attacking football from Basford who used the space well especially after losing 2 of my 3 centre halves from the back 3.
The last 20 mins we pushed harder and had more chances Joe Walsh coming off the bench to win a penalty and slot it home. Game ended 3-2
In summary, a very good game one we should of won with our quality and we were unlucky to come away with at least a point.
