Matchday Report
Hampshire Premier Football League
Senior Division  Saturday Aug 4th
Fleetlands 2, COMMON 3

With six debutants within the squad Ben Thomson and Dave Egerton guided their Common side to an excellent odd-goal-in-five victory against a very good Fleetlands team.
Ryan Funnell, Joe Griggs, Jack Hannam, Will Oakley, Ash Sheibatzadeh and Dan Strange all made their Common 1st Team debut's with substitute Ash netting the decider.
The home side started excellently and Common were put under early pressure. A square centre of defence saw the visitors caught out by the long ball time and again but Will Oakley and Sam Phillips each recovered, with the assistance of the strong-running Jack Hannam, to deny any direct threat on goal although Ryan Funnell in the Common goal was tested several times.
Common were taking time to settle and our midfield was struggling to compete against the hosts as the ball kept coming back at us. Defenders Karl Salmon (making his 170th appearance for The Commoners) and debutant Joe Griggs were working hard either side of the central pairing to ebb the home sides flow.
Skipper Costa, Mitch Ben Parker, Dan Strange and Jack had their work cut out to interrupt the hosts forward movement but, eventually, some a level of parity was restored. However, following a 15th-minute Fleetlands corner, the hosts took a deserved lead with a goal that would be anyone's contender for Strike of the Season. The corner was met by a Common head but fell some 20-yards out to Kurt Watts who struck a sweetly-timed volley fizzing into the net. 1-0
However, Common's response was instant. From the kick off the ball was played forward to Jordy Parker who attempted to find Dave Paskins but the ball was cleared it was picked up by left back Joe Griggs who embarked on a run from his own half , into the hosts 18-yard box before playing the ball across the box from where DAVE PASKINS netted the equaliser. 1-1 (IMG8385 - Dave Paskins centre).
With Costa proving a thorn in Fleetlands side he cajoled and inspired The Common to greater things and the leveller boosted Common's confidence further as they now started to create more in the oppositions half. Jordy Parker was proving a thorn with his close control and Dan Strange was trying to conjure some openings with Dave Paskins intelligent running, but more often than not the final ball was intercepted or a Fleetlands defender just got a toe in.
Common's best chance during this period came from a free-kick expertly taken by Dan Strange but  the defender far right stuck out a leg to deflect the ball wide of goal.
In the closing minutes of the half the game provided two more goals.
Common won the ball to break up a Fleetlands foray forward and Griggs played the ball to JORDY PARKER. He chased forward with the ball at his feet, out-pacing a flat defensive line before rounding the goalkeeper and placing the ball in the net. 1-2
Once again the riposte was instant and again from a Fleetlands corner. The ball came across, was met by Jordan Whitely and, despite an outstanding effort to save the goal-bound header by keeper Ryan Funnell (see picture), the ball nestled in the net off the left hand upright. 2-2 and half-time... PHEW!!
After the break Common looked more assured and comfortable on the ball as they settled the uncertainties of playing with unfamiliar faces and sought to start the campaign with maximum points.
But still Fleetlands were a threat with rapid raids down each flank and the occasional 'route one' effort. Phillips and Oakley grew into the game and, with the resolute Griggs and Salmon (during his previous 169 Common appearances he always showed well and even netted on six occasions - but all without a beard), defensively we more more secure. Ryan Funnell's stature grew between the posts but still there were some hairy moments to endure.
On a baking hot day the players were starting to feel the heat with both Jordy Parker and Dan Strange - each with injury concerns - leaving the fray to be replaced by Alex Simmons and Ash Sheibatzadeh
The effort, work-rate and desire of Jack Hannam was prodigious and showed no sign of abating with critical interventions all over the park to match the work load of Skipper Costa who continued in his time-honoured way of disrupting, disputing and creating (although the 'D's on this occasion outnumbered the 'C's!).
Common were looking to utilise Simmo's pace as the home defence tired but is was the skill factor of his fellow sub which decided the game.
ASH received the ball wide left on the edge of the box and used his tricky feet to get past two defenders before placing his shot beyond the home goalkeeper. 2-3 .
The hosts recomposed but failed to penetrate a solid visitors defence - bolstered by the appearance of Sam Strange who replaced Mitchell Ben Parker - but frequently found themselves out wide and able to litter the visiting goal with crosses but goalkeeper and defence held firm.
As the game drew to a close Common thought they had a cast-iron case for a penalty. From a Common corner the ball was floated over as the home goalkeeper grabbed Simmo's shirt and dragged him over. The referee considered his options and awarded Fleetlands a free kick!! Perhaps IMG8410 below reveals the truth?
Final Score 2-3
Ultimately Common secured the three points with an improving performance against, as I said at the outset, a very good home side.

Next up is on Wednesday August 8th when we visit Winchester Castle for a 6:45pm start.
