THE BLUE BOYS CONTINUE THEIR UNBEATEN HOME RUN - JUST!

FC BROXBOURNE BOROUGH UNLUCKY NOT TO TAKE SOMETHING FROM AN ENTERTAINING GAME AT THE GOSLING STADIUM 

Hatfield Town made it four home wins in a row with a hard fought 2-1 victory over Roy Bleau's young FC Broxbourne Borough side in a Spartan South Midlands League Division One game on a very chilly Saturday afternoon in Hertfordshire. Kevin Pearman's side were well in control at half time being 2-0 up through goals from Stephen Newton on 17 minutes (although FCBB's goalkeeper Leon Miller had a hand in it to - he won't relish watching the replay as he misjudged claiming the lofted ball into the box and deflected it into his own net) and Jordan Lewis on 36 minutes. Lewis's goal had a touch of quality about it with a neat turn on the edge of the box followed by a neatly judged lob over the keeper into the net - his acrobatic celebration afterwards was equally impressive. 

THE AWAY BENCH TRY AND KEEP WARM ON A CHILLY AFTERNOON

FC Broxbourne who have a number of impressive young players in their side have been struggling for form with just three wins in seventeen league games played going into this game. Despite this record I would say the furture is bright for the club and with the commitment shown in the second half I would say some positive results are not too far away. Their left winger Kai Bowers, who is only sixteen years old, really stood out for me. His close control and ability to run at and commit defenders was fantastic - he deserved a goal in the second half and it was only a brilliant save by Kieron Extence that denied him. I'd say Bowers in a player to be on the look out for - This was only his second start in the first team - He scored on his debut against promotion chasing Baldock Town. 

They did make it 2-1 through Corey Stewart's long range effort and but for a bit more luck they could of taken a point from this game. I would say it was the Hatfield fans and players who briefed a sigh of relief when the final whistle went. 

This Saturday Broxbourne travel to Rayners Lane with Hatfield Town at home to London Lions who are pushing hard for a promotion place at the top of the division.
