As the whistle came to end the first half Romford still had a win within the sights expecting more of the same effort
and persistance from the first half to pay off in the second but things went to shit.
Rejoining the second half the Towners kicked off with the classic John McGhee 'shot from the half-way line' but it was
charged down immediately by an opposition player. At the beginning of the second it was 3-2 to Edmundsons but that soon
changed. Romford Town were exposed at the back on multiple occasions as they were unable to contain a team that were
on form as they attacked. Marking one player was useless as more always came to join the attack. Goals from the
opposition were still deflected or lucky though (not biased at all, honest, ask me mum) as the score slipped further away
from Romford Town reach.
Hammonds goalkeeping had done the Towners proud in the first but was unlucky in the second as the shots came flying in.
On one occasion Steve was even nutmegged but thankfully he still managed to save a shot with his face again at least one point
during the match.
Late in the second a further consilation was added to the Towner scorecheet as Murrell found himself in space just a
bit past the edge of the area directly in front of the goal. Controlling a bouncing ball well, the starlet drilled it
into the left corner past the keeper.
Further bad luck dogged the Towners even later in the first half, quite literally, as Roger 'Dogs' was injured after
shooting and was forced to leave the pitch to continue the final minutes of the game on the sidelines.
Finally the whistle went and the Towners left the drizzled-on pitch to cry in the bar, but realisation of an unlucky
night left the boys in hope of making up for it next week.
Reunited with the Towners again, Benny Brace gave a short speech after receiving the honoured Players Player of the season
award on Sunday. 'Thank you' were among the words in the speech.
