Surrey Classics FC v Langley Aces
Denny Ross
17th. October 2010

Weather: Warm and sunny
Aces decked ..........
Langley visited Denny Ross on a beautiful day for an encounter which ended up as a relatively easy win for the Classics. They took the lead as early as the fourth minute after a right wing cross from Gordie Macklin was fired home by Alfie Deglan who drove the ball low and hard to the left of the visiting goalkeeper. Just two minutes later it was 2-0 to the home side. Previous good work from Chuck McGill was capitalised upon and when Macklin laid the ball through to Gene Crowley he didn't disappoint as he left footed to the right hand side of the keeper. It looked like a whitewash was on the cards with two of the fastest goals on record coming so early but the Aces regrouped and battened down the hatches to frustrate the home side and they managed to keep the score down to 2-0 at the half.

When play resumed it took another 20 minutes before the home side increased the lead. This time it came from Alan Massender who headed the ball home with a downward header which went low to the left of the keeper. It was a case of left ... right ... left. What is the next is the mathematical sequence? If you can't work it out you will have to face the camera and confess that you are not smarter than a fifth grader! Play was fairly distributed from this point on and it took the Classics until the 80th minute to score again but what a cracker it was when it came. The ball was sent over to the far post where Warren Crowley performed a textbook diving header. The header made the ball come across the face of the goal and deceive the keeper. It then hit the near post and ricochetted into the net. The resultant cheering from the 'Team Crowley' fans, who had witnessed both of their heroes finding the net, must have awoken the whole neighbourhood of little sleepy Murrayville. The icing on the cake could have come just two minutes later after another exciting and dazzling run from W. Crowley resulted in him beating the keeper by crossing the ball to his waiting brother who was less than one foot off the goal-line. However, the other half of the team had his head in cuckooland and he could only hold his head in shame after he blasted the ball high and wide when it looked easier to score. Still, the fans remained loyal.

Final Score 4-0 (2-0)
