TEAM: Mens Masters XI
FIXTURE: Mens Masters XI VS 12/01/2020
HEADLINE: City Men's Masters O40s win convincingly away at Cambridge City
LEAGUE: England Hockey O40s Tier 2 Cup
VENUE: Cambridge City
RESULT: CAMBRIDGE CITY 0 - NORWICH CITY 4
An experienced, yet unfamiliar side took to the pitches of Cambridge on Sunday afternoon for the third round of the National Over 40s cup. Dynamically led by Matt Brine, the team started strongly, although couldn’t break through a stubborn Cambridge defence in the first half. Newly internationally selected Pete Morgan was lively as ever, but the chances didn’t quite drop for us. 0-0 at half time.
Norwich dominated the second half. A sneaky opener by Pete was followed up by a coolly converted penalty flick by Nick Hooper. The third goal was the pick of the lot. A sweeping, pitch length move was stylishly finished by Richard Silvester. Matt Brine made sure of the result with a bullet short corner strike, Iain Martin was doing his emails in an untroubled D area and the team now confidently move onto round 4. Good to see the club able to field two Headmasters in the same team, indeed, same midfield!
