BUFC 0 – Dunbar 2
Sunday Primetime football v Dunbar Rovers
It was another sunny day down at Wembley reserve. The groundskeepers “the dogs” had been out this week and the pitch was looking great with freshly dug holes. Dan Taylor was making his comeback after falling down a hole and been trapped under Paine reserve and Chris Neale was hoping to keep his first ever clean sheet in goal.
After a few warm ups the usual sing along did not happen ( Tom did not have enough time to rehearse) and this upset the bufc team going into the match. Barker was starting in midfield and joe was up front according to Brian?
The gaffa decided to go for a 4-5-1 formation leaving the lone ranger Tom upfront.The visitors with an average height of 6.3” started confidently, imposing their passing game on the Bufc defense and it wasn’t long before Chris Neale
was making impressive saves on his debut this year. After sacrificing the goal scoring threat of Adam he was replaced by the wee Scot Gerry who imposed himself quickly in the game with his traditional sliding tackles. After an attack from Dunbar Chris Neale makes a great save only to see the ball loop up in the air over his head and heading towards the goal and into the net after a foul by the opposition. The game continued and shortly before half time ste had fallen to a late tackle and had to be taken of the pitch which restricted BUFC attacking from left back. Half time approached and after a debate between the defence at half time the second half kicked off.
BUFC went in search of an equaliser however could not break down dunbars defence. Tying to break the deadlock Barry summons Brian to come on against his arch enemy. Half an hour later after brushing his hair doing his make up he comes on and almost immediately makes an impact with a shot just over the bar. BUFC kept chasing the game but it wasn’t to be with dunbar scoring a second and the game ending 2-0
Luck is clearly not with yet this season but plenty of games to go, to take points and move into the playoffs
