Wares 1 v 0 Leighton Town Att:84


The Wares finally break the SJP League Hoodoo. 4 of the 5 new signings come into the squad, and all start. The 1st 15 minutes was all Leighton, and the defence stood the test. To be honest the game wasn't a great spectacle, and the 1 bit of class from Sam Murphy won the game. Chasing down a long ball, he won the ball back, then cut in from the left before curling a 20 yarder into the top corner. Some good defending kept it 1 nil at HT. The 2nd half was all wares, and several missed opportunities when we had more players in advanced role. Cain made a couple of good saves. 2 red cards in the final stages, Mikkel James and the Leighton Number 5, who to be fair had been outstanding during the game were sent off in the last minute after going head to head like fighting antelope. Although no head was thrown in anger. The game was over, a massive result and the SJP league curse broken. Next up Hadley Away Wednesday.
