Sutton Casuals too good for AFC Tattenhall

Home » News » We drew the first half!
AFC Tattenhall

AFC Tattenhall were beaten on Sunday by Sutton Casuals, who move to the top of section B.

In a bid to finally get a game on despite the weather, the game was moved to an earlier kick off, and off the grass onto 4G (fake grass)

In the return fixture earlier in the season, Sutton Casuals walloped Tattenhall 9-0, so there was some revenge to be sought. (Although most of the team couldn't remember what the actual score was in that game)

The first half ended 0-0, as Tattenhall restricted Sutton to pot shots from far out, which Matty Buckingham dealt with easily. Spar's own Lloydy and Ryan Davies had chances at the other end, but they went in at the break nil all. Tattenhall started the second half well, Joe Sumner hit the post from about 40 yards out, and if it wasn't for the League's press secretary engaging one of our players in conversation mid game, (a dirty tactic) we would've gone a goal up.

Nevertheless, for a period of 10 minutes, we completely switched off and conceded 4 goals in quick succession. We pulled one back through Collen Mutete, but in the end, they were too strong, despite another 'Sumner-esque' goal from Joe, the game finished 7-2. (But we did draw the first half)
