GOOD FOUR DAYS FOR PENN AS WINNING RUN CONTINUES
Penn Enjoyed a good four days when they followed up their 2-0 league win at Milton United on Saturday with a 1-0 Supplementary Cup win at Home on Tuesday night against Chinnor.
On Saturday Penn gained a good deserved away win at Milton United with goals in the first and last minute of the game. The first half started brilliantly for Penn when, after some hesitation between the Milton goalkeeper and defender Fred Tripp nipped in between them and lifted the ball over the advancing keeper to put Penn 1-0 ahead and give Penn a dream start. Penn completely dominated the first half without putting Milton to the sword as should have been the case with several chances going begging.
One memorable moment of the first half was when Penn’s young left back Dominic Brown advanced over the half way line and from fully 35 yards unleashed an “excocet” of a shot, and with the Milton goalkeeper rooted to the spot, the ball crashed against the angle of crossbar and post and bounced over to safety. Penn continued to create chances but went in only 1-0 to the good.
As is often the case in these scenarios Milton came out a different proposition and took the game to Penn and created some problems for the Penn defence but they held firm and were superbly marshalled by the impressive Charlie Lane and Michael Moore who made sure their defences were not breached. Milton did create some dangerous dead ball situations which Penn in the main dealt with comfortably. With the game progressing to the 94th minute and still hanging in the balance a through ball released the dangerous Tom Staples who raced through and finished superbly and slotted home past the Milton goalkeeper and in off the post to finally put the game out of Milton’s reach. The whistle went soon after to signal another good three points for Penn & Tylers Green FC
On Tuesday night Penn entertained Chinnor, who they had already beaten this season in the league 3-0, at home in the Supplementary Cup and in a very entertaining even game, which could have gone either way as the game flowed from end to end from start to finish.
Penn eventually gained the breakthrough in the 80th minute when a through ball released Raju Pritpal, who burst into the penalty area and shot into the far corner across the dive of the Chinnor goalkeeper to keep Penn’s mini winning run intact.
Penn’s next game is this Saturday away to Woodley United at Scours Lane in Reading.
