Disappointing Result Only Gives Town A Point
By Andrew Parker
A disappointing result for Town in front of another excellent crowd at Bell Close last Saturday. On reflection a draw was a fair result between two very evenly matched sides.
Disappointingly the ball spent more time in the air than on the ground and the game never really flowed.
Town dominated possession in the first period and came closest when a superb 25 yard strike from Carl Tappin came back off the post with visiting 'keeper Goode stranded. Hadley's best effort came from a well struck free kick from Paul Wright that just went over the bar.
The Visitors had a strong start to the second half and Idimudia should have done better with a close range header. Another Hadley effort went just wide before Hammond almost got the opener for the Visitors.
Town came back stronly in the latter stages and ' super sub ' Bruno Brito went very close with a clever flick which just went over the bar. Matt Hall wasted a free kick chance and Goode made several important saves as the game ended in a draw.
Town are very disappointed with this result as the points dropped now make gaining a promoting spot very difficult.
In the crowd were many Former PLayers of the Club and it was also lovely to see Harry Kirton - Manager of the team which won the Beds Seniort Cup for 3 successive years 1968 - 1970 at the game.
