A much changed under new management Langford FC entertained Letchworth GC Eagles on Tuesday evening in the Spartan South Midlands League Division One.  
A comparison of the side from the game at Letchworth Garden City Eagles in December saw just Kodi Briggs, Sam Peverall and Jack Sherwood remaining the the starting XI. 

The club parted company with the management team Rob Russell and Chris Howells at the end of January who had been replaced by Stuart Robertson and Graham Reynolds. 

The home side went into the game with a record of one win and five defeats from when Robertson and Reynolds took over with the visitors on the back of a wonderful 2-5 win at Long Crendon in their last game played. 

You wouldn't of thought Langford were struggling for form as they looked the better side in a scrappy game that had no real goal-mouth action to report in the first half. Early in the second half Langford struck the cross bar with a header and The Eagles had a deflected close range shot rattle the post. 

With the game drifting into injury time it was looking like it was going to end with goals which would of been a welcome hard earned point for the home side. Eagle's striker Redha Zekri had other ideas with the former Stotfold and Amersham Town man put through on goal to score a very very late winner for the visitors which was played before a crowd of 62 people at Forde Park. 

It was a cruel and rather harsh blow to the young Langford side who had worked hard throughout the game and overall deserved to get something out of it - I'm sure they will gain confidence from the performance going into their next game away at Bedford FC tomorrow afternoon. 

The Eagles host Buckingham Athletic in the league tomorrow and also have a Hertfordshire FA Senior Centenary Trophy Cup Final to look forward to where they play Chipperfield Corinthians at The County Ground in Letchworth on Wednesday 6th April.
