Capel Plough FC

The first team recorded their third win in the last four league games after beating bottom club Grundisburgh at home by 4-1, a victory which saw us move up the third place in the league table. The day did not start too well for our striker Danny Garrard who phoned up at 1-00pm from Grundisburgh to say that he was feeling a bit lonely as there was no one else about ! After putting his foot down he made it to our ground just before kick off but is now waiting for the speeding fine to come through ! There was a lively start to the game after we went in front after three minutes when a long throw from Stefan Mallet was headed on by Shaun Webb and then headed into the net by Alfie Smith for his first goal for the club. However three minutes later a freekick from Zac Eales was finished off by Sarvio Denoolier with a neat header for the equaliser. Both sides created chances before a cross from Webb was headed in by Daniel Alderson to put us in front with twenty five minutes played. Two further headed goals after the break from Webb and Daniel Page made the points safe with both goals laid on by Mallet who played well for us at fullback. After what had been an even first half we got on top after the break missing several chances to increase the lead with Matt Easton completing his first full game for us this season and playing well while Smith and Webb worked hard in midfield with Garrard and Middlebrook giving the visitors defence plenty to think about. Our teenage keeper Christian Foxhall did well between the sticks and is growing in confidence with his handling faultless on the day and he looks a decent prospect. Grundisburgh lost skipper Luke Reid early on with a leg injury but fought hard although they were short of firepower up front. Talking to Micky Squirrell after the game he knows that he has got a massive job on to keep his club in the Senior league with just one win all season.
Our reserves drew 1-1 with A F C Kesgrave with Charlie Reid getting the goal . Jack Reddington let himself and the club down by getting sent off with the ten men battling hard to earn a point with Dan Dixon and Dan Hudson-Smith both playing well.
Our Veteran team had a good win after beating league leaders Romeo Done (strange name for a team ! ) by two goals to one. Scorers unknown. This was one of three games played on the main pitch this weekend which is now looking a bit rough for wear and could do with a roll. If only I had a tractor !
Plans for a new pavillion and an all weather five a side pitch were recently put on display at the clubhouse. It remains to be seen if it goes ahead but if it does it would be a great asset for the village. Watch this space then !
Next Saturday sees the first team away to league leaders Henley Athletic while the reserves have a cup game away to Westerfield United.
