Robins U16 6-5 Lambourn
Robins fight and toil as Lambourn try to spoil
A performance that showed real grit and determination against a team who were never interested in playing football meant Robins recorded their first win of the new season.
Still missing 2 or 3 players, the team again started this game slowly and conceded again through a defensive mistake. Centre half Isaacs continued for the next 20 minutes rueing his error but you just need to move on and stop trying to walk and feed the ducks! Robins managed to battle back and score goals from Dibble and Dixon but yet again mistakes meant the team went into the break 3-2 down.
Some subtle changes by Horan and Isaacs at half time and the team started to take a little more control of the midfield. Further goals by Dixon (2) and Dibble (1) plus a goal by Smart meant the Robins managed to win the game 6-5. The boys did well to keep their composure in the face of some "vigorous" Lambourn challenges, but got their reward with a hard-fought win and a positive start to the season.
Team: B Roberts,Jones, Horan, Smart, Isaacs. Farley, Fritchley, Dibble, Dixon, Sealey, Bakare. Subs, Cremin, Dibble, C Roberts
