Game quality would not have been out of place in higher divisions


By Pete Woodhouse


High-flying Bury St Edmunds were welcomed to the Peele Astro to be met by 11 players playing on the 11th day of Christmas as Long Sutton Men’s 1sts put in a super performance in a 2-2 draw.

The game started with a high tempo and to a quality which would not have been out of place in higher divisions; defensively Whitmore, Fox, Baguley, Burton and Synott were in unison and were aided well by Oldfield after Burton was taken out under ‘friendly’ fire; Batten, Baker, Hagen, Markille, Synott jnr and Ellis buzzed around in midfield and Canham ran tirelessly up front.

The team from Suffolk scored first but this did not deter the home side and they equalised with a well-worked goal from Jacob Synott after excellent work from Danny Batten.

The scores finished level at half-time. Captain Fox gave his usual speech and the side restarted with spirits raised on the back of the outstanding first half.

The game carried on at a great pace with chances both ends and Bury took the lead again from a well hit short corner. After a period of pressure Josh Baker scored from the edge of the D with a hard-hit shot. Despite a series of short corners at the end, Sutton shared the points with the team that finished the day top of the division. The young side worked hard for each other. A fantastic launch pad for the rest of the season.
