A derby that couldn’t get any closer as both Rugby Town clubs battled it out on a muddy wet pitch to determine the pecking order of the two teams. The playing conditions with waterlogged pitch didn’t help the Tigers passing style of play.
The First half got off to a great start with the Tigers having most of the possession with Charlie, Finley, Lewis and Gabriel pressing from the front whilst Olly, Alex, Reid and William tidied up things at the back on the odd occasion the Colts broke through.
The second half was more evenly matched with both teams creating many chances and having several shots on target only for the two goalkeepers to deny them. In the final few minutes Arjan, in goal for the Tigers, pulled of a couple of fine saves to earn the star player award.
