Everyone in green played 110% in this eagerly fought game at the home of Chap Colt Rovers but still the all important 3 points went to CCR. Lady Luck deserted the Bedworth lads as they pressured , battled and carved their way through the Colts team to create a hat full of chances. On a day that seen the United lads do everything absolutely right, the only thing that eluded them was the split second that sees opposition net bulge as the ball strikes it. Moorie in goals was hardly threatened at all and the one time he couldn't get to the ball a goal line clearance from the team captain Barnett was met with applause from the watching crowd and Barnett was awarded man of the match ( rightly so ).
As the game opened up in the second half a united header produced a great save from the CCR keeper. A number of other chances were created by the greens only for the ball to fall awkwardly for the United attackers. Then another questionable free kick was awarded to CCR a good way out. The ball was sweetly struck and hung in the air to drop over the line and give CCR the lead. 1-0 was enough to give all the points to the opposition. A cruel conclusion for the United team who once again had given their all only to be beaten by Lady Luck. The football this team plays certainly is not mirrored by its league position. With 16 games left its all still to play for and everyone associated with these lads knows they won't give in. Moorie, Haynes, Barnett, Rumble, Ball, Lemee, Webb, Gisbourne, Burhell, Mulherne, Rahal are all more than capable of correcting their league position with the support of all around them and when they do emerge from this they should be all the stronger for it.
