Up and running again

Saturday 23rd July - Friendly
Easington United 2 Sculcoates Amateurs 2

At least after all the shenanigans on the programme front, the "new look" side did themselves proud on the pitch.  A well-deserved draw against the Humber Premier League champions but, perhaps more importantly, a superb attitude shown both on and off the field by all involved.  I best stop typing now before I get too excited...
A brief description of events would be - Scully start strong but we have the better chances; on 16mins Charlie commits a foul that would no doubt have resulted in a card in any competitive game - escapes punishment and proceeds to save Lee Benham's penalty; we continue to cause problems for the visitors defence and Sculcoates keeper James Hitchcock comes to the fore, while Gav clips the bar with one exquisite effort; before the break Gav scores while Scully wait for a flag that never comes.
Second half - Danny Drayton soon levels after a defensive lapse; Chaz saves well from Sean Lyons before we begin carving out more chances at the other end - Hitchcock denying Gav twice and Frosty, while Jamie fires just wide; great move on 82mins sees Frosty tee-up Gav for a second; Scully then level through Lyons and Hitchcock saves from young Sam Mac at the death.
Full time - back to pub where I miss out on bread & dripping!
If you want a more detailed account I suggest you look here while a full set of Colin Brammer's match photos can be found here.
As for me, after a couple of decent pints of Tetley Cask and an upbeat post-match chat with the new management, Chairman and Vice Chairman, it was back home to cook and enjoy a bit of Mexican cuisine and the sounds of The Motown Show on Smooth Radio.  Oh yes, I know how to enjoy my Saturday nights...
