Buckley Town FC v Druids EDS

A great 4-0 win for the EDS away at Buckley Town on the weekend. The lads were solid at the back and creative up top, capping off another fine display!

Saturdays game for the EDS led us down to Buckley Town FC. It was a great game for the young druids side and a game which turned out to be a goal fest. The stage was set and Druids got off the mark nice and early, playing good football out from the back into midfielder Pete Evans who played the ball down the left hand side for Eric Durnell to finish the move off in superb fashion. 1-0 after 4 minutes. This wasn’t enough for Druids, they kept going and were creating great opportunities from wide positions. It was very impressive to see the football that was being played throughout the game. The second goal come through a magnificent ball through by Harry Farnsworth who found unexpectedly Pete Evans on the left hand side who beat his man in a foot race to the ball and slotted it past the keeper in a cool and calm fashion. Druids went in at halftime 2-0 up and looking comfortable. The second half started and Buckley had a few chances to claw the game back. Cameron Dutton in the Druid’s goal made a great save with his feet to keep our 2-0 cushion intact, and the other attempt hit the bar. It was important that Druids kept the intensity in the second half which has lacked in previous games. This time they kept their foot on the pedal and kept breaking Buckley down. The third goal game from number 9 Oscar Herd who got the ball on the edge of the box beat his man and slotted home, making it 3-0 on 52 minutes. A number of changes were made for both teams and it just made the game even better, especially for Druids. All the lads were adamant they were going to keep a clean sheet, which they did. The back 4 defended as a unit really well this game and they didn’t really look like conceding other than the two chances that Buckley had early in the second half. The final goal to finish the game off was from substitute Dan Jolley with a superb finish inside the box.

EDS Manager Jordan hadaway spoke after the match, “It was great to see the lads carry out the game plan and execute it perfectly, again proud of the clean sheet and the attitude of all the lads. The hospitality and welcome from all at Buckley especially Emma Iball was the best yet, and I want to thank them for that and we will return the favour when they come up to the rock”

Another impressive performance by the EDS who were solid at the back and clinical in front of goal. Credit to the coaching staff for getting them organised and playing some eye catching football! We look forward for their next fixture!

More than just a football club.
