VERY GOOD

Eden’s moved to joint top of the League Table with this victory by the narrowest of margins against Church Together.


Due to injury and other commitments, Eden’s were missing three of their team regulars. In their place, the Blues were pleased to offer league debuts to two players from the United States, Cameron Spague & Will Jordan. Both players acquitted themselves well.


The game was finely balanced throughout, with it being a frantic end to end encounter. Eden’s, without their prolific goal scorer Josh Collins, found goals hard to come by. They eventually took the lead after around 30 minutes when ‘Scuba’ Bantock curled a shot into the back of the net following a wonderful assist from Will Wingfield.


With around 15 minutes remaining, Joe Salter took advantage of some calamitous defending to put Churches back on level terms. With this exciting game looking set to end a draw Eden's surged forward in the final minutes. 'Scuba' Bantock passed to Charles Elford, who slid the ball under the legs of Churches keeper Rob Aitken to score the winner and send Eden's joint top of the league table.


Churches will be disappointed that they didn't manage to see out a draw. However, they can be pleased with this performance. Prior to the match nobody would have given them a chance and the ever improving Churches team created some good chances.

On this showing, the team look set to turn things around in 2019.
