Paradise not lost
Penn & Tylers Green FC 3 – Milton United 2
Paradise Lost is an epic poem in blank verse by the 17th-century English poet Milton. Luckily for Penn & Tylers Green FC’s paradise was not lost against Milton United as a second home win on the trot was secured with a good performance.
On a windy but sunny afternoon in front of 37 loyal supporters including our Club President (who is still looking for that illusive Graf Zeppelin Airship) the boys started well and could have scored in the first minute.
The team who were without the suspended Antonio Sepede and Jonathan Mason carried on dominating the game and played some excellent football early on. Graham Potts replaced Sam Walters (quite clearly a touch of Noroviruses) before the start and Graham had an excellent game in his first start in the first team this season.
A very good move in the 11th minute involving Chris Hurst, and Owen Hunte-Millington produced a fierce shot from Jamie West which rebounded from the bar with the goalkeeper well beaten.
Milton United were dangerous on the counter attack (and remained so throughout the game with their number 10 Dan Oatway showing all his experience) and in the 13th minute forced Matt Cannings to make a good save low to his left.
