Rugby Town Colts 1 v 1 Bulkington Lions (Sponsored by Sytner Coventry)
High winds and freezing temperatures meant that this was never going to be a classic, but the Colts played some good football when they kept it on the floor. With the wind behind them in the first half the Colts dominated possession, but couldn’t make it pay until Archie was pushed in the back for a penalty, which he stepped up and converted. The defence had to be alert to some quick breaks as Bulkington played long, but Gabriel, Harry and Alfie tackled well and Matt made a couple of good saves.
Will was in excellent form in the centre of midfield and helped build attacks, with Jack and Nathan competing well against some big lads and releasing Devan and Danny on the wings. Somi, Archie and Thomas had the beating of Bulkington’s defence for pace, but the conditions hampered efforts on goal and Bulkington equalised 15 minutes from time after a goalmouth scramble.
