Bounds Green: Sun 22-Jul-18 (report by George)
WWFC led by George travelled to Bounds Green for a friendly 6 a-side match. It was yet another fine result with Watford running out 11-7 winners. Watford fielded an over 60’s team (with one underage player agreed with Bounds Green beforehand). Bounds Green fielded an entire under 60’s team. The game was played with gusto and in good spirit.
Watford suffered the usual slow start and went two down before managing to get our normal passing game going and were soon back onto level terms before slowly pulling away. However, Watford tired towards the end (entirely due to the heat according to George) and unfortunately let them get 3 back although up until then, Watford were largely in control for most of the game.
A special thanks to our fully certified WFA referee Richard Manning, who handled the game with his usual professionalism (even keeping Howard relatively quiet).
Bounds Green thanked us for the match and especially Richard’s handling of the game and are hoping to visit us at the Meriden in a couple of months’ time.
Thanks to all of our players and Richard.
