The Leatherhead supporters spent some time in the bar to get to know each other again after three three week mid-winter break. So much to talk about. Why have we not heard about what happened with regards to the SSC? Why did we agree to play the game at the new Meadowbank a month later when we should have been getting games under our belt? Why do MVDC give one club £8million while we beg for repayment plans?
On the pitch and Leatherhead ground out a hard fought win. The first half was messy and had a ref that wanted the game to be largely about him. He awarded a penalty for some robust man-management by Jerry (note; dangerous arms to the back of the head are OK as Ruel discovered). The penalty was saved but the ref would go on to be a general nuisance all game.
Second half and the new style 5-3-2 formation ditched in favour for something more attacking and Derry was added. This paid off as Midson headed back across goal for Derry to place his header past the 'keeper.
Some panicky last few minutes as we either forgot where the corner flag was or forgot how to run there and Dorking looked good for an equaliser but we held on. So on to the next game then, same time tomorrow anyone?
