Scilly day 17 - Match of the Day

The boys in green 2016!


Synchronised stretching....



The toss up....



Cool relaxed atmosphere on the subs bench!


The birders caught the Islanders defence napping, close to scoring in the first minute! Tipped over by the islanders goalkeeper!


The in-house communications system, keeping birders on the island up to speed with the BIG match.


And then against the run of play, a corner led to this opening goal for the Islanders.....




Action all the way with Zach showing impressive ball contral!


On the attack.....


And defending well with scything tackles going in!



We nearly went behind with this shot nearly beating Kev who maybe touched it.....


Onto the post!!


Soaking up the pressure with another corner.


Punched away by Kev......


The defence gets ready for a free kick.....




Scott propels another long throw in!





More rought and tumble!








A little bit of backchat? Who meeeee?




And then, the moment I thought would never happen.... a looping lob....


The opposition can only stare helpless....


as maybe helped in,,, a well deserved equaliser!!



Yessssssssss!



The action resumed.....


An injury meant that Spider was scrambled from the bench, Al was standing by to get his kit on!!!


Spider couldn't resist  practising his corner flag celebration dance? You have to score first!


Oh no.... with half time looming another goal for the Islanders!


With rain falling down, half time beckoned! 2:1 down but there had been a few chances to be on level terms!
