Stick To The Plan Always Works

Leighton Win a 5 Goal Thriller

Leighton played away to EB Lions in what always promised to be a thrilling game after the last encounter.
Leighton who were again down to bare bones - missing Cohen, Bailey and Ella still out injured.
Leighton started like a train.... Moving the ball quickly and making space on a big pitch, and were quickly in front after a lovely sweeping move was finished off by Evan with a lovely chipped finish.
This was just the start as Leighton carried on creating chances and were fully ontop. Oliver and Freddie on the wings were finding space and time and moving the ball with so much pace.
Evan then slotted Leighton two up before half time. In defence Ryan and William were so solid and battled really well to keep EB Lions at bay
Truth be told Leighton should of been out of site in the first half, and this was a worry as could of come back to bite them in the second half.....
And thats what happened !! EB Lions pulled one back straight after half time. This then turned the tide and caused Leighton all sorts of problems. It was down to Jamie in goal to keep EB out as long as possible , however he could do nothing to stop there equaliser which was a fantastic free kick
Charlie P and Billy then were up against it as EB lions came wave after wave attack. This was until Evan won a free kick and Billy stepped up.. The crowd waited with baited breathe.... The first shot hit the wall and then Billy drilled in the rebound low into the corner !!! This was a cracking goal to win any game
Man of the Match Billy capped his display with this goal
It was a fantastic game and a great all round performance from Leighton
Easter break now and a chance for Leighton to get some players back from Injury
