Capel Plough FC

The first team moved up to sixth place in the Senior Division after a 2-0 win at struggling Grundisburgh on Saturday. A first half goal from Nick Middlebrook and a second half strike from new striker Terry Rymer gave us the points in a game which will not live too long in the memory. Luke Tynan became our fifth goalkeeper in the last two months and had a good game between the sticks commanding his penalty area very well with plenty of shouted instructions to his defence which was good to see for someone so young. Both teams were guilty of giving the ball away but we did play some good football at times with Aaron Whitman doing well at the back and Alfie Smith getting through a lot of work in midfield. Ant Jackson and Middlebrook worked hard upfront with the experienced Rymer looking like a good signing although he needed Middlebrook to convert his spot kick after his initial strike had been well parried by Callum Johnson. He made up for this after the break with a well taken goal giving Johnson no chance with a powerfull finish. This is season number 38 in the Senior Division for Grundisburgh but at present it does not look like they will make it to 39 unless they can win a few games. They are the most successful club in the S I L with countless trophies and our first team have had some good battles with them during the last 20 years .Nice to have a chat with Micky before the game and all the best for the rest of the season. The highlight of the afternoon for me was the appearance of Gary Collins for the last ten minutes. Gary has been out since September with ligament problems and it was great to see him back in a Plough shirt. Not so great was the ugly flare up with minutes remaining with our hosts having Hughes sent off and maybe we were fortunately not to have a red as well. Other then this incident referee Matt Fear had few problems with the players having a good game in the middle.
Our reserves won 2-0 at Leiston St. Margarets thanks to goals from Jack Reddington and Jordon ?Oliver Miller told me that he had an outstanding game and was M O T M so you cant argue with that can you ! Thanks for bringing the dirty kit back so that I could wash it. (Number 12 shirt missing )
Finally I would like to say thank you to everyone, especially those connected to Grundisburgh F C and Capel Plough F C for their kind words of condolences towards myself and my wife Linda after the recent tragic passing of our daughter in law Jess, leaving behind our son Paul and our two young grandsons Jake and Thomas. Your thoughts were much appreciated
