BUFC C’s vs Penang FC – Trial Game

Weather (pouring rain)

Brad’s Barnstoneworth C’s old timers vs Penang FC fit, fast and pretty good teenagers

Final score lost count after 5 but will settle for about 8-1

A long game of 3 halves was actually pretty close for the 1st half hour with some resolute defending with Geordie in imperious form wearing his brand spanking new Sunderland shirt and aptly backed up by Aaron in goal, Phil on the left and fine debuts from Dave Sole on the right, Joey in the middle and Shaun running the midfield.

We were finally broken down with 2 quick goals the 2nd a fine strike from outside the box before replying with a goal from Glenn on his debut after fine work from Eduardo, Dave and Nigel (who was looking very fit after losing 6 ounces over the summer).

30 seconds later we were 3-1 down after Aaron was caught out facing the wrong way from the kick off but “it wasn’t fair coz he wasn’t ready”

Eduardo, Nigel & Geordie (from a corner) were unlucky not to get us back into the game with fine efforts before the Barny Army started running out of players and steam with Penang classily passing the ball around leaving us huffing and puffing.  chasing shadows.

Final score, probably about 4-1 in normal time and about 8-1 overall but a fine workout for our makeshift team and played in great spirit.

Looking good for the new season!
