|Result||W 3 - 0|
|Time played||Normal time|
Today was the first round of the county cup, once everyone had managed to find the pitches we were ready to start our next adventure.
We started the game on top but could not make our dominance count, the pitch was very uneven and the boys were struggling to get the ball under control. we seemed to be holding onto the ball too long and trying to do too much with it. Bury were making sure they had enough numbers behind the ball to block any shots. Then halfway through the first half Alex played in Finley who managed to beat the goalkeeper, 1-0. It stayed that way until half time.
We spoke at half time about making our dominance count and taking our chances when they come.
We then had a free kick that Jimmy sent into the box which the goalkeeper missed and it fell to Owen who fired it in and run the length of the pitch to celebrate !, 2-0.
We were having all the possession in Bury's half but could not not quite finish it off. we had a few good long range efforts just wide, then Owen layed the ball off to Jimmy who scored in the corner, 3-0.
We had a few more chances with Bury's defenders putting in some last ditch challenges to stop Daly adding to the score.
It finished 3-0.
Overall a comfortable afternoon, I dont think Ollie had to make a save during the game. We will have a stronger test in the next round !
