Duncan Holt Testimonial

As part of the Duncan Holt Testimonial the Vets entertained Old Minchendenians.

This was the Vets first game of the season and new manager Barry Smith was looking for a good start. The first half was a tight tense affair with both sides having several chances but the half ended 0-0.

Our opposition finally broke through to score just after half time to lead 1-0.

After some good work debutant Martin Saggers managed to slip the ball through to Taju who finished comfortably to make it 1-1. Then after good pressure debutant Martyn Tribe whipped a good right footed cross over for Taju to head home to give us the lead 2-1.

Rather then see the game out with ten minutes to go we conceded two soft goals to lose the match 3-2.

But Barry was pleased with the effort of all the players and it was a good competitive match to start the season with. 

Squad: Gary Doodes (Capt) , Martyn Tribe, Steve Hunter, Dorian West, Trevor Burton, Paul Obinkwo, Roger gayle, Kevin Whitworth, Darren Foss, Martin Saggers, Taju Oyedeji, Barry Smith (Manager), Barry P Smith, Tony Graves, Suhail Butt, Paul Goldsworthy, Bill Howard
