Manics have PLENTY in Reserve(s)

Enjoying one of the most comprehensive and thorough preseason preparations in recent years, Manics reserves may have been guilty of putting themselves on a pedestal going into this eagerly awaited opener against Royal Oak Wanderers. So keen to play the free-flowing football that they had exacted week in week out during the summer, perhaps the desire was too great where more relaxation and composure was needed.

Despite this, Manics dominated the first half. They created early chances and could have gone ahead through Kalin Krumov early on but his close range header flew over the bar. Skipper Chris Wilson also squandered a golden opportunity from 6 yards, sidefooting the ball over the bar from Krumovs low cross.
The lead came about on 30 minutes. A low pacey cross into the box was turned into the net by an unfortunate Oak defender. The glee was short lived because 5 minutes later Oak equalised against the run of play after a long ball by Wentworth 1-1.



After an enjoyable interval, which can only happen at the Manics, the quality of football was lifted and the second goal came within minutes of the restart. And what a wonderful goal it was, Darren Barton at right-back fizzed the ball low into the feet of Wilson who crafted a deft first time pass into the right wing run of ‘whippet’ David Comper. Comper planted a lovely first time crossfield ball into the oncoming run of ‘beast’, Kalin Krumov. Krumov outwitted his defender and deposited the ball with his left foot across the keeper into the bottom right corner. Manics 2 Oak 1 in a devastating move which lasted all of 8 seconds. Glee as Wilson sat on top of Krumov and Cedric Robinson.

Manics played some lovely football but couldn’t find the net, the cramp ridden Oak keeper made a string of saves and Wilson missed from 2 yards, blaming a bobble!

The third goal was very, very special. Was it another fantastic display of pass and move? No, it was scored from a corner, the ball hitting a defender and falling into the path of a grateful Manic who calmly slotted the ball into the net. Why was this goal special then? I hear you ask. I’ll tell you. This goal was special because it was scored by a legend playing his 100th game for the club, Brian Judge.

It was fitting that Brian Judge scored the winner on his 100th appearance and it was fitting that after such a great pre-season Manics got off to a winning start this season.
