4ths Report from Mittu Crorie
The game between the Accies and Old Camdenians started as a close contest, with both teams showing signs of promise. The opening half an hour saw the visitors enjoy a greater share of possession. The Accies were unable to get into the opposition’s half. The pressure was finally converted into a goal with a near post half-volley, from a wide free kick, that was poorly defended. However, it would seem that this goal stirred the home team into action, with Chris Matthews immediately equalising via a breakdown of the opposition’s defence.
There were then chances at either end. Graham Whitworth put a header wide from a corner, when it seemed easier to score. He more than made up for it later. Ethu Crorie, the Accies keeper, saved well in a one on one chance for Camdenians. It seemed obvious that the next goal was crucial. A good Accies move resulted in the ball falling to Matt Howard, on the edge of the box, when others had failed to score easier opportunities in the move. Matt showed everybody all how it was done by placing the ball in the top left corner with no lack of panache.
This triggered the pivotal point in the game; when two Old Camdenian teammates began exchanging blows, with even a few kicks involved, resulting in the referee having to send both players off. The Accies stood watching, bemused by the incident. Having been sent off, both players thought it appropriate to finish the altercation on the sidelines. No need to be concerned, as the two players (apparently near neighbours) had kissed and made up as they were seen playing table tennis after the game.
Down to nine men, it should have been easy for the Accies. Having scored a third goal, the Accies became a little too relaxed resulting in Camdenians closing the gap to one. Will Stoner, a new flying full-back promptly waltzed past the left back to score to make it 4-2. A fifth followed for the Accies shortly after, but again complacency set in and whilst the Accies perambulated around the pitch thinking the game was over, Camdenians pushed forward and scored another. This resulted in an expletive laden tongue-lashing of biblical portions by Ethu Crorie, that even affected the referee (as he admitted after the match).
The Accies picked up their game, worked out that they could simply pass and move the ball to take advantage of the space and the goals flew, resulting in Graham Whitworth ending up with five including a well taken penalty. A rather sympathetic refereeing performance meant that two further Camdenians, who could and should have been sent off (one being a last ditch handball on the line), were allowed to remain on the pitch. An interesting game to say the least.
