“LINE UP, LINE UP – POSITIONS – JAMES!!”

The first half of the game was a cagey affair with both teams sizing each other up like a couple of heavyweight boxers. CWF taking some time to get into their stride. Player/Coach Phillips, gets a chance to assess his players in real-life action and is thinking, “blimey, this game is slow!”. However, CWF soon got to the pace of the game  🙂 , Butcher and Betts controlling the midfield, with Mundin holding the back line and Ballantine pushing on from the defence, working box-to-box. Margate were ‘workmanlike’ and gave CWF a couple of uneasy moments but Roger Betts eventually rattled one in with a right footed rocket into the corner.

“BETTS WANTS IT, RIGHT WING”

This settled CWF down and they started to sweep the ball around as though they had been playing this game all their lives (!!) A couple of minutes before time, Betts (again!) finished them off with a clever strike under the goalkeeper who was diving full stretch in anticipation of a shot into the corner.
