Cheshunt & Barnet (Home) – 18-Nov-17

Cheshunt & Barnet (Home) – 18-Nov-17 (report by Richard)

Another enjoyable set of matches played in friendly atmosphere at the Meriden hosting Barnet and Cheshunt.

Cheshunt’s team was depleted by injury with 5 players so with unknown standard, in the first game against Watford B, Richard and Julian moved to the Cheshunt side to make it 7 v 7. Cheshunt turned out to be a decent team and their 3-0 win would have been much closer with Julian in goal. Meanwhile Watford A beat Barnet 4-0.

In the second round, Watford A again won 4-0, with Andy Roads biting the bullet to join Cheshunt to make up the 7.  Richard returned to the Watford B team which drew 2-2 with Barnet after letting the lead slip twice (nice Steve Holley goals).

Barnet kindly provide one referee and thanks do to Luke for coming to referee the other pitch.  Both pitches were refereed very well which ensures the games flowed and were played in good spirit.

This was Will’s last match managing the Watford League squad, so it was nice to go out with two comprehensive wins.
