GOALS GALORE AT THE HAVEN
An enthralling end to end encounter, in which both sides threw caution to the wind in order to outscore the other.
After going behind with just 15 on the clock, Anvil supporters groaned inwardly fearing the worst, but come halftime the pendulum had swung back in the Anvils favour whom now led at the break by the odd goal in three, a Bacon goal ( perhaps a bit streaky ) closed the gap in the second half, but come the hour mark and a further double thro Sam Cane and Josh Brown had Anvil support musing perhaps to themselves that well known ditty of 'can we play you every week'.
But lurking in the shadows waiting patiently in the wings, and ready to make her entrance was the well known 'Fat Lady', and goals from Bacon and a last gasp freekick thro the Anvil wall by Gaylor, literally bought the house / curtain down on a match that had everything.
Just one complaint, aimed at the good villagers of CD, where were you all last night, a Gate of 38 was pretty poor fare on a late summer eve, with goals to boot!!
