Kinoulton Villa Vets 1 v 3 Tollerton
Date: December 14th 2014
Starting Line Up
Final Score: KVV FC 1 v 3 Tollerton Vets
KVV Goal Scorers: Jameson
Man of the Match: Wol
With a bare eleven, some heavy heads following Christmas celebrations and a goalkeeper fresh from knee surgery, a victory against a young Tollerton side was always going to be against the odds. Whilst everyone battled hard especially Wol and Evan at the back, the Tollerton pressure eventually paid off when they took the lead after around 20 minutes.
Some might have then expected the flood gates to open but Villa dug in and were rewarded for their efforts through an unlikely hero in the form of emergency striker Doug Jameson. A pinpoint cross from Nobby on the right saw Doug rise like a kipper and place a bullet header low to the keepers right which he could do nothing about to make the score 1-1.
Villa continued to fight but the heavy pitch eventually had an impact on the older legs and in the second half Tollerton were able to use their pace and energy to good effect and score 2 further goals with the final game of the year ending in a 3-1 defeat.
Special mention to player manager Jeff who only a matter of weeks after intricate knee surgery bravely kitted up and did a fantastic job between the sticks of the Villa goal. Deano also hurt his back.
