It was back to the football today at a sunny West Clewes where Welton Rovers hosted AEK Boco in a first division Western League game. Welton Rovers were looking for another win while another side comes to West Clewes hoping to be the first team to beat Rovers this season. Welton Rovers were fielding two new players today with a new keeper and another striker it is obviously a lot easier to get players when you are winning!
Quite a good game today and I think Welton Rovers knew they were in a game, well in the first half at least, with Boco pressing forward and putting pressure on the home side with some good football which was a pleasure to watch at times. I still feel Welton Rovers have moments when they seem to be a bit disjointed with big gaps appearing every now and again but they are still getting the results at the final whistle. Again today the substitutions at the right time brought Welton Rovers back to life just when it was needed. However as any one that has ever read this blog my big pet hate is wasted set plays and today was the first game that Welton Rovers set play were not up to scratch as they have been to the most part this season so far! Overall I think Welton Rovers deserved the win with Boco playing well but just not having that final ball today. I'm going to put the cat amongst the pigeons and probably cause a bit of a debate in my opinion the first goal appears to have been an own goal with a Boco player turning it into his own net ( see Image 025 and 026) although I think it was going in from the striker, Both the new players made a good start with the Keeper looking very steady in goal.
