Match report:

Goring Thistle 8 - 1 The Chequer F.C.

There's not really a lot you can say about a result like this, except to admit that your opponents outplayed you in every department and gave you an absolute hiding.

Goring dominated the first half and were 4-0 up at the break, winning the midfield battle, nullifying our forward line and causing havoc with intricate quick passing amongst our defence. They should have had a fifth, but were denied a clear penalty when Richard Wilkie shoved a Thistle forward over as he was about to shoot.

Chequer started the second half brighter, and brought the score back to 4-1 within 5 minutes with a well taken header by Warren Partridge. Chequer then dominated play for 15 minutes during which time both Chris Duffett and Si Price squandered good chances. Thistle though added a fifth on a breakaway and the heart and desire went out of the Chequer who crumbled and saw three more goals go in in the last 10 minutes.

Thistle played some lovely football at pace and were worthy winners today. Though a seven goal margin is flattering it could have been worse if not for a couple of smart reaction saves from David Kennet.

Last year after we were unlucky to lose 2-0 to Thistle, their manager said we were the best 'footballing' side they had played. I don't think he'd hold the same opinion today. What beggars belief is that we beat Ajax Kings Arms 4-1 just two weeks ago, and they beat Thistle 5-3 in the opening fixture. I can only assume Thistle fielded a weakened side that day.

There were too many hungover Chequer players and not enough passion or desire today. Credit to Thistle they played like league champions.
