Ely City 1 Haverhill Borough 0

Last Saturday the groundhoppers descended on the Unwin Ground for Ely's game against Haverhill Borough and hopefully they enjoyed what they saw.

Several of Ely's regulars were missing, but it was good to see Lewis Hook and Paul Summerskills given a chance as well as young Jake Alsop from the under 18s given a chance in goal.

It was a very competent display from the team and Jack Saunders also caused a lot of problems for the visitors who seemed to kick him up in the air every time he got near the ball. The referee seemed to have forgotten his cards though, so they continued to get away with it.

Several chances were given to Theobold and Knowles up front, but it wasn't until the 65th minute that Knowles was able to  slot home to give the Robins the win in one of the most one sided 1-0 wins you are ever likely to see.
