Lympstone so need a break!
PUBLISHED: 09:04 24 November 2010
Lympstone were beaten again but once more it was very much a case of what might have been had lady luck not completely deserted them in Mid Devon in their game at Bampton.
AFTER days of heavy rain it was a surprise to find out that the game was going ahead especially as all other games in the area were called off , but it was, and Lympstone made there way to Bampton to find a pitch sodden and sticky, it was going to be a difficult task and it soon became a muddy mess and a game of players slipping up and finding it hard to keep their feet.
Some chances at each end but no success until a hopeful lump up the pitch over the Lympets defence was missed and as the defenders slipped and got stuck in the mud as a Bampton striker made the best of it and slotted it under Scott Clayton in the Lympstone goal 1-0 and this was all the Lympstone Keeper had to do as Lympstone laid siege on the Bampton goal area for the whole second half as with previous games did everything but score.
The Bampton keeper made some great saves and with some poor finishing, and a considerable amount of bad luck, didn’t help the Lympets cause, the game ended 1-0 and another loss.
Boss Duane Greenslade said: “It’s hard to know what to say after this. We are genuinely playing some smashing football but are simply not getting the breaks at the moment. In both the last games we have been the better side and yet got nothing to show for our considerable efforts. The positive is that this level of ill fortune cannot stick around and things will change soon, so staying positive is a must for everybody. Tim Mills provided strength up top and the midfield of Sam Connell and Mark Dunne won that particular battle, Defensively we were not really troubled and all the lads played their part - hopefully we’ll get a break sooner rather than later!”.
