Due to circumstances beyond our control we only had a bare 11 plus myself to go to Trowbridge with for the important cup game.
It was always going to be an up hill struggle with only 11 players and Trowbridge were always going to a tough game away.
With Anthony away with his family Ed took on the captaincy for the day. Leanne was also making her debut for the Dragons. After 20 minutes we were 3-1 down and Aris had to go off unfortunately after picking up an injury which meant Dave A makings his outfield debut for the club up front.
Trowbridge took the lead on 10 minutes with a penalty, the Dragons equalized on 11 minutes through Stefan, Trowbridge went back in front on 15 minutes with a well taken strike and went further ahead on 20 minutes after yet another penalty going against the Dragons.
By this time the Dragons were finding it tough to break down a well organised Trowbridge side and they added 2 further goals before half time 5-1 at half time.
Ten minutes into the 2nd half and it was 6-1 to Trowbridge. Aris by then had tried to run off his injury and returned to the pitch for Dave A. There were 2 further goals for Trowbridge before the Dragons got a goal back through Ed in the 89 minute. Final Score 8-2 to Trowbridge who deserved to win on the day and we would like to thank them for there hospitality after the game.
The management were very disappointed with the result but it has to be said every Dragon on the pitch tried their best on the day but unfortunately it was just not good enough.
The management would like to thank Jordan for recording the game and Richie for his support on the day.
