As is normal at Worcester we had a very close game but as in previous years we seem unable to come out on top. It was a very close end to end game with the home team winning 2-1. Both sets of defenders working well together making for a big contest in the middle of the park. Worcester scored first mid way through the first half, a ball across the dee found for once the unmarked left wing Garth Davis who slotted in an easy ball. The score remained the same into the second half until Ray Jeff picked up a loose ball in the dee and sloted the ball home to equal the score. The pattern of the game remained the same with both sides getting plenty of play but not many chances short corners were in short supply but Worcester gained a penalty from a foot defending one and Geoff Ball gave Mike Fripp little chance low into the left corner. The score remained the same despite LX winning 3 short corners towards the end. Over all it had been a very good team effort but at the end of the day the slightly younger legs of Worcester got the edge.
The day ended with a very nice lunch at the Swan at Whittenham cooked by the son of Worcesters full back John Ranscombe. We all took the the time to wish Maurice Williams happy birthday.
