Match report:

Push back, burnt ash are dominating the play from the off. So much so that the first goal comes before Carrick can figure out how to start the stop watch. As he is the one writing this match report, he didnt see the first brunt ash goal go in. Apparently Will scores but who knows seeing as it was a simple tap in. 1-0 Ash. Ash still looking the dominating side, Peeley puts Longley into a one on one with keeper. Being the stereotypical midfield he is, decides not to shoot but to put the ball pack across to Peeley who puts the ball inside the back post. A very well worked goal. 2-0 Ash. Ashford have had enough and decide to put some effort in to score almost straight away from the off 2-1 Ash. 3 goals and it had been only 3 minutes played. Carrick finally comes on from warming the bench up for Longley. He puts in a 5 min shift then takes a hit from the ball into his ball... he felt once again like he hadn’t hit puberty yet (he looks as if he hasn’t anyway). Longley comes back on for Carrick and moment later takes a hit to the thumb. Only having one sub, Ash are down to 10 men. Luckily Mike Gillett would answer our prayers of hope and clearly being enraged by ashfords goal, cracks the ball into the oppositions face. As they had no subs it was 10 men on each side. Longley decides to come back on to give us 11 men’s but to just be a distraction as his skills would surly not be the best having one hand. Half time 2-1. Second half gets under way. Ash get the next goal from a devastating reverse from Peeley right down the centre of goal. The keeper was so scared he moved out of the way to let the ball fly into the net. 3-1 Ash. Ashford manage to get the next goal by nut megging our poor old captain Flower. 3-2 Ash. Next up Will scores a deflects revers hit. Some would say it was going miles wide but the defender proved otherwise by deflecting it straight into his own net. 4-2 Ash. Dylan Adkinson makes his debut for the 2s as Carrick can’t carry on from the previous blow. Dylan comes on and in moment scores on his debut from a simple tap in at the back. 5-2 Ash. Ashford score once more but who cares the game ends there and then finishing 5-3 to Ash. A hard won game by ash despite having a man up. A game described perfectly by Coursey. “A game of literal blood, sweat and tears”.
