5ths Report from Bob Woad

The fifths ended a run of two disappointing results with a good 2 – 0 victory against a rejuvenated Old Woodhousians team at Shenley. Talk of the bizarre 10 -5 victory in the corresponding away fixture took second place to debate whether Dave Swaby would emulate his goal-scoring feat of that clearly unholy day. 

A stronger fifths team than in the previous two weeks took to the field but still without the perpetually holidaying Chris Carter. The omens didn’t look good as Swaby, in the absence of the bronzed and oiled Carter, found his wrist action and tossing skills had deserted him and the fifths started the match at the behest of Woodhousians playing into a traditional Shenley gale in the first half. 

As expected the conditions meant that the fifths defence were constantly at risk from a Woodhousians punt forwards but they did at least keep the ball down and attempt to play a measured passing game. Joe Baggaley was making some promising runs down the left while on the right Mike Ringer was causing a degree of consternation on the right. The central midfield paring of Sameer Pater and the ubiquitous Pussycat Williams looked solid and up front darting runs and swift closing down of the Woodhousians defence by Stuart Richards and Mark Marshall were restricting the Woodhousian play.

Meanwhile the Accies back four of Dave Swaby, Jules Court, Andy Tickle and Jat Chohan prevented Woodhousians from any real threat on goal, the only dangerous moment being quickly snuffed out by keeper-in-residence Bob Woad who smothered the ball at the feet of an onrushing attacker.

The fifths ended the half 1-0 up. Sameer Patel picked the ball up from the defence and played a sublime ball over the top of the Woodhousian defence to Mark Marshall who slipped his marker and slotted the ball coolly into to the bottom right hand corner

With the wind at their backs in the second half the 5ths found the going much easier and soon were 2-0 up after Joe Baggaley made cunning use of the wind to swing a corner from the right directly into the Woodhousian goal.

Woodhousians rarely threatened with their only real effort a speculative lob from distance which Bob Woad easily gathered.

It was left to Dave Swaby to produce the most memorable moment of the game. In an attempt to prove that lightening can strike twice, and to get two up on the goalless Chris Carter, he again donned his ninja tunic and crept unseen into the Woodhousians penalty area. As tumbleweed rolled across the pitch and to the distant tolling of a bell a Joe Baggeley cross from the left eluded the Woodhousian defenders and fell to Swaby’s feet. His moment of destiny had arrived. All it would take was a simple prod of the ball to emulate his goal scoring feet from the reverse fixture. In that instance he had fire his shot high into the roof of the net from one yard, silently thanking his lucky stars he hadn’t been 18 inches further from goal. This time however he was 18 inches further from goal and as he drew back his foot and leant back into a near horizontal position he would have had a perfect view as the ball shot up and onto the bar from where it sailed off into the far distance.
