Match report:

The Chequer F.C. 0 - 2 Beckett Wanderers (Trophyman Cup)

It's getting a little tiresome to keep repeating the same thing week in week out, but once more Chequer's inability to score cost them the game this weekend.

Beckett started the brighter of the two sides and nearly opened the scoring after ten minutes, when a slip by Richard Wilkie let wanderers in on goal, but a superb last ditch tackle by Sean Hourigan saved his blushes. The same player however was caught out when a handball decision went against him to gift Beckett a penalty and a 1-0 lead. Chequer saw plenty of the ball, but shorn of any regular strikers couldn't hold the ball up and kept conceding possession. A second goal arrived late in the second half when a cross whipped in from the right was met with a powerful diving header from the Wanderer's forward who had lost both Steve Duffet and Adam Price.

At half time, Beckett were good value for their lead and changes needed to be made. Manager Richard Wilkie substituted himself for Will Jago, who slotted in at left back, with Lewis Partridge dropping to right back and Leo Trower moving up front.

Chequer began to dominate the game, looking particularly dangerous down the left where Mark Friend-James and Will Jago combined superbly time and again. For all the possession though Chequer still weren't creating scoring chances. On 70 minutes Jonathan Wood was introduced on the right wing, with Sean Hourigan moving into the centre, and Tom Pickford pushing up front to replace Aaron Comber who had a poor game by his standards. Within 4 minutes of these changes a superb cross from Tom just missed the outstretched boot of Woody as he ran across the six yard box. Chequer began to believe they could get something from the game and launched numerous attacks on the Beckett goal - Their keeper made two great saves, including a superb stop from an Adam Searle attempt from 25 yards.

Despite all the pressure, Chequer's lack of forwards, and confidence in front of goal saw us fail to score, and for the second year running exit the Trophyman cup in our first match.

Something must be done to resolve our scoring crisis as this is now the third match running that we have dominated our opponents, created numerous scoring opportunities and still lost.
