CODICOTE SIGN OFF THE YEAR WITH A 4-1 VICTORY

Codicote ended the 2010's with an impressive 4-1 home win over Mursley United in the Spartan South Midlands League Division Two on Saturday. It was a highly memorable game for sixteen year old Jack Hewitt (pictured below) who was making his first start for The Cod - He set up the first goal for Max Evans in the first half only for Mursley to equalise and make the half time score 1-1. 

There was a contentious incident in the first half when Codicote's keeper was booked for a challenge on the edge of the box which a Cod fan shouted was a 50/50 ball when the yellow card was shown. The incident has been viewed over 3,000 times on social media and discussed by many people. Local non-league celebrity Liam Kenna has stated "Horrendous, 3 game ban and 100 hours community service" with other comments as follows - 

"Anywhere else on the pitch that's a yellow for me. But as the striker is through on goal (he's the right side of the defender at least) it could have been a red."

"It's a clear yellow card for a reckless challenge. Not Serious Foul Play for me so only way it might be red would be DOGSO. I'd lean towards this outcome though direction of play was not clearly towards the goal ..."

"For me, a DoGSO so the card should be as seasonally red as the nose on Rudolph imo! However, I was a part-time goalie once so good luck to him."

"Its an orange! Definitely a yellow, keeper should feel that he's lucky to stay on. #football"

"Great commitment, ball or man can get past never both. Defender was covering. Unlucky to get a yellow. If Striker was as committed he would've scored.
 
Mursley's goal was slightly controversial as the Codicote bench claimed the ball had gone out of play and rebounded from the metal stanchion on the side of the ball was smashed into the top of the net from close range. 



The second half saw Hewitt score his three goals - Perry Price (who played four games for New Salamis last season and has also played for Harefield United) set two of them up with some good wing play on the left hand side of midfield. Former Wodson Park striker also made his debut for Codicote in this game.  

The Cod continue their run of four home games in a row with fixtures against Bovingdon and Berkhamsted Raiders in the next two weeks. 

Mursley (who have three wins from nine league games so far) host Berkhamsted Raiders on Saturday 4th January before another home game against New Bradwell St Peter on Saturday 18th January.
