After the trauma of following the first team, who finally got a win yesterday when they beat Clacton 4-2 away, i thought I'd give the reserves a go.
It was a first round of the William Coad Intermediate Cup and the visitors were Outwell Swifts. Ely had most of the pressure in both halves, but the game was ultimately decided by an own goal from the Ely left back in the opening minutes of the second half.
Ely tried their best to get an equaliser, and the goalkeeper also went up in stoppage time, but it wasn't to be despite a good effort.
Now only one week to go to the big one in Dortmund!
