Match Report

Like a classic Marti Pellow song, the day was Wet Wet Wet! Horncastle Men's 1's started strong with an early goal putting them on the front foot, Jack Cullen scoring his first goal for the his new club. The ball struggling to make it's way around the pitch less so Hoods stick which due to the elements left his hands and travelled further than the ball. The game began to open up as the half went on and Cambridge eventually struck back bringing the game to 1-1. The game was hard fought and both teams continued to press and defend trying to keep from conceding further. The wind and rain was the only thing cutting through the defences on an extremely cold afternoon. Ashton Horncastle's undoubted man of the match making some vital saves defying Cambridge from further capitalising on a sustained period of pressure. Bennett hit the post late on from a short corner as Horncastle went on a late surge however the scoreline stayed at 1-1. Man of the match Jack Ashton.
