Match report


Broadies March on Saturday saw Harpenden travel to Harefield to take on the blue machine. Harpenden the form team in the league taking on the team with the best home record so something had to give. The game started at a fast pace and the early exchanges going to Broadies who should really have taken at least one of the chances provided but soon Harpenden got into there stride and were starting to get on top but Broadfields broke away and won a penalty when a defender put out his arms in box trying to stop a cros. Up stepped Broadfields Club Captain Harry Henley who calmly sent the keeper the wrong way putting Broadfields one nil up. Not log after the first goal Broadfields doubled their lead after some neat interchange of passes between Harry Henley and Thomas Rivett (TR) left Henley with a clean shot at goal which he placed beyond the keeper. Broadfields were now flying and did not want the half time whistle to come but it did. The half time break seemed to renergise Harpenden and they pinned the blues back in there half hoping and appealing for everything to go there way. Then with 25 minutes to go they finally got the breakthrough they needed when a fine move was finished by the winger coming in late at back post. It was now all hands to the pump and with 10 minutes left Harpenden got what was a debatable penalty of their own which was cooly dispatched by the forward Hunt even on a retake. Now Harpenden were turning the screw and only a great save by Kiaran Jimmy kept the blues alive from the resulting corner Broadfields broke and with the very last kick of the game super sub Josh Warren stroked home a great winner to the delight of the Broadies players and supporters. Special mention to all those young players forcing their way into the team over half the match day squad being under the age of 20 the future is bright. Man of match. Harry Henley a captains performance and two goals to boot will need to lead his troops with same vigour next week for fa vase game.
