Second game of the season and the nerves begun to show from our young Towners. This was a very tight game in which Takeley had come well prepared for.
It seems now that we are the champions teams are quite happy to sit back and soak up pressure against us now and Takeley showed an excellent example of how resilient teams at this level can be. Camped out behind the ball and playing long balls up to their 2 strikers Takeley played a very frustrating game that certainly worked out in the end.
It could have been a different story if we had taken our chances but it wasn't to be, and despite controlling the whole game and creating over 10 clear cut chances we could not find the back of the net and more often than not we couldn't hit the target. Takeley hit us on the break mid-way through the second half and scored the all important winner.
