Harrow arrived at The Grove knowing that if disaster struck they would be relegated so travelled in good numbers. Even before the game started they were given the boost of some key absences in the Leatherhead ranks. Man flu, a prize holiday and an assistant manager position left us three players short and in need of some reorganising.
With the visitors well prepared for the task at hand it was no surprise that they fought just that little bit harder and dominated most of the game. The dominance rewarded by a player who takes his chances when presented. MCS scoring the winning goal against us both home and away this season when he latched onto a loose ball in the box in the first half.
The second half was a little quiet. Our best chance came via a penalty awarded when Vas’ run was blocked in the box. A soft penalty that was struck with equal measure by Vas and was saved with ease.
With little at stake Leatherhead allowed some youth team players to get a run. We did rally but no breakthrough came. At the final whistle the visitors over celebrated somewhat given the collapse by Peacehaven made the result redundant.
Leatherhead can take a lot of pride of the season overall. Especially given the revolving door we were faced with at the start of the season. With a bit more stability we can hope for an exciting campaign next season…
