Division One East

Didcot Town Development 3 Penn & Tylers Green 1
Deja vu for these two teams as Didcot’s last home game of the season is a replayed abandoned match that was 3-1 when it was abandoned ! Still a satisfactory way to end our home games coming from behind and with another three points gathered on a balmy night at Loop Meadow Stadium.

Keiran Davies for the home team was first to get a shot at goal which sailed over the bar from distance. Penn’s Thackeray burst through on goal but James Barnett did well to put him off sufficiently to negate any danger. Harry Moreton had a shot saved with Caelen Isaac shooting over the bar from the rebound for Didcot. Penn took the lead when Thackeray took advantage of a bouncing ball that eluded the Didcot defence and he shot low just inside the post on 21 minutes.

Didcot equalised 15 minutes later when Isaac cut inside and passed to Davies who shot first time high into the net. Didcot piled on the pressure and Moreton shot over following a good Isaac move. Daryl Harris was put through on goal with a quick throw in and appeared to be brought down by the Penn goalkeeper but no penalty given and at half time it was honours even.

Both teams appeared to change formation in the second half with regular substitutions breaking up play however it was again Didcot pressure when Harris hit the crossbar from a wicked shot out wide. Didcot pressure was resulting in free kicks and Davies hit the wall. From another free kick Taylor Janes found Davies who headed over. Sam Eeles in the Didcot goal had a good save from a shot out wide.

The free kick and resultant bookings count increased as Didcot kept the pressure on this time Jack Hollister being brought down. Didcot finally took the lead 11 minutes from time when the Penn goalie failed to deal with a fairly routine cross and Davies was in the right place to head home virtually on the line. Harris headed past the post before Didcot added a third with five minutes remaining with Harry Hudson heading home a good cross.
