At half time the Wares with a scrappy half to contend with saw Tring with the better chances and the Wares gifting Tring their goal. However, in the end it came down to two mistakes and two good chances spurned but Tring probably deserved the win.

Early in the 9th minute Addae clears off the line from a corner and with 10 minutes gone a curling free kick is saved well by Greg. A couple of minutes later and Sam Odusoga’s shot is deflected for a corner. 20 minutes in and a deep cross from David Sota evades the keeper but Addae heads wide. Chances for both sides. With about 30 minutes gone a weak shot from their no10 drifts wide. On 32 a free kick in a dangerous position for Tring flew just over the bar. 10 minutes later Tring scored their goal from a free kick on the left corner of the box, Greg tried to punch the ball away and but made a hash of it 1-0 . Martin however has a shot blocked just before half-time. 

HT - 1-0

 

The second half started slowly and on 51 minutes Mikkel put a through ball to Sam Odusoga whose a shot off but goes just wide. Minutes later another through ball to Sam Odusoga is smothered by the keeper. On 57 minutes another superb through ball from Rio to Steven but keeper saved well. With 60 minutes gone Cheyce Grant makes his debut somewhat ironically for Ferg. 5 minutes later there was a good run from their no10 but his shot drifts just over the bar. On 67 Claudio was on for Mark. With 15 to go Claudio takes a free-kick but his shot sails over the bar. 77 minutes sees Ethan on for Steven. In the 86th Sam Addae gives the ball away in the opposition half and from that Tring break and their no12 scores 2-0.  Claudio had a consolation shot just before the end.
