Yelverton 2-1 East Harling Football Club …

Yelverton 2-1 East Harling Football Club
The first team crashed out of the league cup at the second hurdle to a hard working Yelverton side.
The visitors got off to a flyer when Tarft exchanged passes with Senior before beating two men and curling an effort towards goal that the keeper excellently palmed round the post to deny the young midfielder.
The scores wouldn’t stay level for long, as Tarft drilled a powerful strike which this time the keeper unfortunately spilled into his own net to give the away side the lead.
The joy was to be short lived as the game quickly turned into a drab contest in the heavy driving rain and thunderstorms.
15 minutes before half time the home side were level when the winger turned Allin inside out before firing in a cross which was headed away only to be met by a stunning half volley which flew past the helpless Woodcock and nestled into the top corner.
After stern half time words the visitors came out for the second half looking to up the tempo and raise what had been a very lacklustre performance.
However they were stunned as the home side came out of the traps even more fired up and found themselves 2-1 up after just 1 minute of the restart.
A 25 yard strike which deflected off the unfortunate Durrant and left Woodcock helpless again as the deflection shaved the post on its way into the net.
Substitutes were introduced but to no avail as the game fizzled out very quickly in to a very poor spectacle.
The referee took it upon himself to liven the game up by showing over 8 cards in the last 5 minutes including 4 reds in a game which had little action and drama.
The performance was simply not good enough and the side got exactly what they deserved, Nothing.
With tough games coming, things must improve. Starting with the home game next Saturday in the Norfolk Junior Cup against St Andrews Reserves where we hope to give a much better account of ourselves.
