The A team opened their season with a home fixture against Norwood: beginning with the best possible start - a goal in the first minute cooly finished by Oscar Thompson - a veteran of two seasons with the A Team. The team endeavoured to advance the score but couldn't quite finish. Bailey McDonald pulled off a couple of saves to keep the score to 1 nil at the end of the first period.
The second period saw Bailey swap his goalkeeper's jersey for his strikers shirt and slotted in the second, having gone close moments earlier. Further goals came from Oscar, as he watched the ball bounce once and calmly passed the Norwood goalie. Ben Lawrenson and Lucas Balshaw got in on ht eact each scoring to make the score 5 nil at the end of that period.
The final period continued with Farnborough passing it round like a vintage Barcelona performance!! Our defence refused to concede,l with George Brain commanded his goal and Lawrie Woods, Dana Amaral, Rhys Graham and Kian Champion all taking turns to play at the back. Rico Seddon-Davidson, Ben Lawrenson and Ben Wareing all made valuable contributions on their A Team debuts and Rhys Graham made quite an impression playing in both defence and storming down the wing as the smallest and youngest player on the pitch.
Lucas scored a sixth goal and his second of the match after a dazzling run from Rhys and Dana made it seven nil with a strike from outside the box.
A fantastic start to what could be a very promising season.
Well done Boys
