OB football match, 2009OBs triumph - just!

Under the leadership of Kwame Asare, the Old Boys returned with an impressive squad of nineteen players of varying fitness and even a good number of supporters – there must have been quite a party somewhere that evening around Tiverton! The OBs started brightly and looked full of running and invention, particularly when Liam Lewis and Matt Pinn were on the field.  Ryan Mason gave them a deserved lead with a neatly taken goal after five minutes of play following some hesitancy in the 1st XI defence. The OBs created further chances but some good fortune (Kwabena Asare being unable to find the old turbo of days gone by!) and eccentric goalkeeping by Julian Strong kept them at bay.

As the game developed, the lack of a convincing and coherent OB fitness regime began to make itself felt and the boys gradually dominated more of the possession. The school side then started to play some excellent flowing football, though too often hesitant finishing led to a failure to convert their chances; that is until Joe Packer-Byrne scored the equaliser following a well worked move starting from the edge of our own penalty area.  Unfortunately, just when the OBs were looking a spent force, one of their rolling subs, Shaun Mardell, stunned us with a late winner. The OBs were ‘over-the-moon’ but the school knew they had been ‘mugged’, the result had been ‘burgled’ and they were generally gutted! JTB
