Problems with availabilities continued for SK as they slump to another defeat.
Monyhull were a good workman like side who fought hard and defended stoutly as SK virtually camped in their half for the second half.
SK kicked off with 10 men before the ‘retired’ Rob Leachman turned up after a last minute call to help us out and give us 11. Holidays, injuries and last minute cry offs left SK with the bare bones and the manager questioning the commitment of the squad in general and wondering if this is all worth while
Despite all of this SK took the lead on 5 minutes when Tom Pencheons corner was bundled home by debutant Sean Stewart. However the lead was short lived and a silly foul gave a free kick and eventually an equalizer on 10 mins.
Then the craziest thing of the day happened when the referee asked for the game to be moved due to the bad surface of the current pitch! The crazy sight of the 2 sets of players carrying the goal posts to the adjoining pitch will remain one of the strangest things i have ever seen in amateur football.
Just before half time after SK had spent a some time in control Monyhull scored a good goal on the break after an SK corner!! and SK were once again trailing at the interval
The second half saw SK camped in the Monyhull half with Mpnyhull restricted to the odd dangerous break. Dec Rigby looked a constant threat, but once again Corinthians were not able to get the goal that their play and domination deserved and Monyhull ran out 2-1 victors. Several scrambles and wrong decisions aided by some last gasp tackles from Monyhull prevented SK getting their just deserts and SK’s day was summed up when Chris ‘piggy’ Freeth smashed a superb header goalwards and it was met by an equally superb save from the Monyhull keeper.
Credit goes to Monyhull for their hard work and endeavour.
SK go again next week and, as I seem to say every week………… consistency with availabilities is the key!
