Gt Notley Ravens 3 Rayne Youth 6
A difficult game for both teams today due to the blustery weather conditions. Ravens were 3-1 up at the end of the half the only consolation for Rayne coming from Harry Ashdown in the 32nd minute as Rayne struggled with the midfield domination of the Ravens and the through balls that split their defence. Ravens were up for the battle and it showed as Rayne struggled to get any continuity going with their play. A polite few words from the coach and manager at half time plus wind advantage the second half looked better for Rayne who started to get to grips with keeping the ball. Josh Oben was first to open the second half scoring with a delightful free kick from the left hand side. Ashdown then netted his second, with Joe Betteridge, Tony Wood and then Betteridge again 7 minutes from time to secure the points. Rayne need to remain focused for next weeks game, be ready from the kick off and compete for every ball.
