Trinity FC 2 - 2 Bucklesham

A scrappy but well fought draw keeps Bucklesham FC sponsored by Edge Consult unbeaten and top of the division.


Bucks conceded an early goal and had to play their way into the game. Good football was hard to come by but Bucks gradually gained control and were rewarded with a well taken goal from Lawrence Mann after a good move on 18 minutes.  Unfortunately, rather than building upon that Bucks had to continue to scrap and a stray back pass allowed the Trinity Striker to seize on it and just beat Bucks’ keeper Jack Small to run the ball into the net.


Bucks knuckled down again and took the game to Trinity. They were rewarded after 37 minutes when Ryan Sutherland equalised, firing home after another good move.


2-2 at half time and the game was in the balance. Unfortunately it remained scrappy throughout the second half, with few chances for either side and Bucks had to settle for the first dropped points of the season, but remain unbeaten and topping the table.
