Coningsby FC 2-0 Fosdyke

Coningsby hosted Fosdyke on Saturday and picked up another three points, sealing a 2-0 win, but in truth the scoreline could and should have been much higher.

The Reds threatened the Fosdyke goal time and again, but somehow missed the target, even when faced with an open goalmouth.

The first 15 minutes were spent by the teams feeling out the opposition without much of note happening, but that all changed when Coningsby’s Tom Sewell made a solo run down the right wing to the corner of the visitors’ penalty box, from where he launched a long ball out of the ‘keeper’s reach into the far corner of the net.

From here on Coningsby took command of the game scoring a second in the 27th minute when Sean Taylor trapped the ball after a head-tennis tournament in the Fosdyke goalmouth and tapped it home.

Although Fosdyke manufactured one or two chances the rest of the game was filled with attempts by the Reds.
