LX Club 2 - Ipswich 1
A good competitive game played in an excellent spirit and
resulted in the end with a deserved win for the LX side.
Due to a number of absentees from the main “A” squad, other hockey
commitments and injuries, the side were left with no full backs leaving Terry
Howlett and John Maylam to fill the breach, which they ably did.
With a limited number of other positional changes the side settled
quickly and had the better of the early exchanges, but
The second half saw LX pick up the pace of the game and for most of this period had the upper hand.
Using shorter and quicker passing LX created a number of
chances and got the
Perryman and Ray Jeff worked extremely hard in midfield throughout and Norman Ballard supported them well. Neil Major and Mike Harris the two wing halves were able to push up and gave good support to the forwards, particularly in the second half, while still providing good defence cover.Our many thanks to John Gordon for organising this fixture and for the excellent spread he provided after the game.
