Match report:

Beckett Wanderers 0 - 1 The Chequer F.C.

Chequer gained three valuable points in this hard fought contest with a strong Beckett Wanderers side.

Last minute withdrawals had left us with only eleven available players and forced four changes from last weeks line up.

The match itself was a very even contest with both sides enjoying long spells of possession and creating several scoring opportunities.

The only goal of the game came midway through the first half. Lewis Partridge delivered a deep free kick from the left which was headed in by a Beckett defender under no pressure to gift us a one goal lead. Shortly afterwards we were fortunate to see Beckett twice head over from close range when a goal seemed likely.

In the second half Chequer were also guilty of a couple of glaring misses, Chris Duffett blazing over with his weaker left foot after a mazy run and pass from Si Price, and George Trafford completely miskicked with the goal at his mercy. Twice more Beckett themselves missed the target after good approach work had left them bearing down on goalkeeper David Kennett, fortunately both shots went wide of the target.

Beckett put us under enormous pressure, dominating the midfield for long periods late in the game. They used the strong wind to put in a number of balls behind the defence. Adam Price dealt superbly with the majority of the aerial threat, but we are endebted to Sean Hourigan who managed a superbly timed tackle to deny Beckett a certain goal and a share of the points with just three minutes left.

Beckett probably deserved a point today, but we can be proud of achieving our first clean sheet of the season, with great defensive work from Adam Price, Sean Hourigan and new goalkeeper David Kennett.
