AFC Mansfield

Sunday, September 24, 2017


We went away to Basford United in the Notts Youth Premier League.

AFC started strongest, moving the ball well and dominating possession.  20 mins in from a set piece Arron Stafford heads the ball from the back post into the net.

Despite lots of chances we failed to build on our possession and we suffered a quick counter attack down our right flank and conceded an equaliser on 40 mins, going in at half-time 1-1.

Second half started and we were second to the ball and struggled with Basford’s out and out pace.

We went down 3-1 with some decent counter attacking football from Basford who used the space well especially after losing 2 of my 3 centre halves from the back 3.

The last 20 mins we pushed harder and had more chances Joe Walsh coming off the bench to win a penalty and slot it home.  Game ended 3-2 

In summary, a very good game one we should of won with our quality and we were unlucky to come away with at least a point.
