Hellenic League 2 East
TAPLOW TOWN vs Long Crendon
A champagne job for this Division, always providing Headington Amateurs are currently playing at either of their two Grounds visited.
The Ground is just off the A4 Bath Road around a mile from the village, other than the dug outs and railed on 3 sides, no other furniture. The first floor Club Bar was open but not open, although an official did enter to make tea for the three hoppers, Tram and Grantastic Vince also, whilst he had a camera not sure it was used. The Official was next seen running the line. The Pitch was firm but the remainder of the field including another full size and junior pitches were boggy.
Long Crendon arrived top of the League having won all of their 9 games and from the start had the far better Players, what TAPLOW had was energy and willingness to work, although it was with some surprise scored midway thru the half with a wall taken Goal, then allowed the visitors to equalise prior to half time.
Once Long Crendon scored early in the second it was all one way traffic, notwithstanding much effort from Taplow a further 7 were added, giving a flattering final score of 1-8.
Had intended to visit Slough Jets hockey just a few miles down the Road, however with the early kick off managed to get back to Streatham with 5 minutes to spare, before an on time start of 17.30, unfortunately another defeat to Romford 2-4
The crowd at Taplow never reached double figures.
