Raiders started their season away at Eldon Celtic Juniors Lions on a sunny September morning in Reading, Berkshire.
In the first 5-10 minutes, both sides were finding their feet and sizing each other up before the early breakthrough came for Eldon having put together a good passing combination and a great finish to go 1-0 up. Ascot struggled to get into 2nd gear in the first half and conceded another 2 before the break.
At half time, Raiders changed things from 4 – 4 – 2 to a 3 – 5 – 2 and pushed hard to get something from the game. Despite conceding again, they were rewarded for their efforts with a goal of their own but it wasn’t enough to spur a recovery and Eldon ended any hopes of a comeback with another 2 goals to win 6-1.
The visitors were made to feel very welcome by the Home Team Staff & Players and the Referee had an excellent game.
