, happily occupied by Mike Rose. A Rogue travelling up field at an unaccustomed speed from his theoretically defensive post was identified (once he had slowed down) as Lee Marnitz, who combined with Peter Wilson and Mike O’D down the right before linking up with Mike R, who put Mike O’D in with a chance which whistled outside the post. It was not long before some skilful combinations from Jerome, Mike O’D, Mike R and Peter W broke down the Tring defence, and Mike O’D’s final pass to Mark (self evidently back on the field yet again) gave us a 2-0 lead after 15 minutes. The Press Box purred at the prospect of watching a side with so much talent, but was soon breathless as he saw a Tring offensive down the right thwarted only by the crossbar, followed by action in the Tring goalmouth as their goalie saved from Peter Tallboys after a Mike R pass, and then Eddie back in action with a save from point blank range, followed by a fine stick save.
after 19 minutes, Mike O’D created a chance which Peter T accepted with a crisp shot after 25 minutes and Peter T returned the compliment by slipping the ball to Mike O’D for his hat-trick after 27 minutes.
