3 More Points as Syngenta Fall to the Manics

Bracknell Manics missed some key players this week. They went up against the sporting opposition this week, Syngenta FC out to get another 3 valuable points in the league.

James Robinson


Luke Phillips

Tony Hemley

Neil Tagg

Simon Blay

David Comper

Aaron Goddard

Elliott Fairs

Joel Curran

Gary Sarney

Paul Milner

BENCH: Fenton, Judge, O'Connell, Blackman

For yet another week running, the Manics went for the kill early in the game, pushing hard and creating plenty of chances...

Bracknell Manics went 1-0 up after a great header from Tony Hemley. A good spell of pressure on the 20th minute saw Joel Curran put a dangerous cross into the box, and Tony was at hand to head the ball home making it 1-0.

Minutes later and the Manics thought they had the second goal all wrapped up, unfortunately though Simon Blay's back-post header was disallowed.

Manics went out to do more damage in the second half, and when Paul Milner was brought down in the box, the referee awarded a penalty. Gary Sarney stepped up to take and calmly converted the goal to make it 2-0.

But right near the end, Manics conceded a sloppy goal, Robinson decided to do a little bit too much on the ball, and was caught out by Syngenta's striker who stole the ball from Robinson and walked it into the net.

Another good performance from the Manics this sunday, thanks to all the fans who came to watch this weekend!

The Manics Man of the Match went to Neil Tagg.
