On Wednesday we were at the Unwin to see the reserves take on local rivals Chatteris. We got some golden goal tickets when we entered the ground, but we were soon disappointed. Our lowest time was 27 minutes, but the Robins took the lead on just 3 when Dean Salmons put the home team ahead. We might have been a bit disappointed by the golden goal, but it was definitely good to see an Ely team actually winning at the Unwin.
Ely were pretty much in complete control of the game and on 22 minutes they increased the lead when sustained pressure led to Chatteris putting the ball into their own goal.
Ely failed to increase their lead, but never looked anything less than comfortable. The game finished 2-0 and it was a well deserved win for the reserves.
