Report: 13-11-2004 – Mens 2nd’s (1) vs (6) Sheffield Bankers 5th’s

Slazenger’s seconds came into this game in confident mood after some good results in previous weeks but were soundly beaten by a very strong student team.

Slazenger’s were 3-0 down inside the first eight minutes and were eventually beaten 6-1 although the score line didn’t reflect the effort put in by the Slazenger’s players.

The only high note of the game was a fantastic top corner drag flick by Rich Hutchins early in the second half. The visiting keeper was forced to make some great saves, notably from a Ben Graham strike with Tim Carr also posing a threat. Paul Johnson took the man of the match award for Slazenger’s, mainly due to his great form early on.

Slazenger’s take on Airdale next week in what could prove to be a crunch match with both teams currently languishing in the relegation positions.
