Slough fans were in a festive mood after Thursday's Bryco Cup
victory, and the arrival of the intrepid walkers added to the days
good feeling, as did the sun.
Slough took up where they left off,
making all the running in the first five minutes. However, on
Worthing's first attack, Slough were torn apart for Alexander to
slot home. Slough continued to be the better side, but couldn't turn
possession into clear chances, though Michael Murphy did hit the
post with a 30 yard pile driver.
Missed some of the detail in this half, as a couple of locals
provided splendid entertainment with a cameo of how to make a
complete pratt of yourself.
Better than Punch and Judy they were, though I'm not sure who would
have the reddest noses. In the week in which the Ivory Billed
Woodpecker was rediscovered having been considered extinct for 60
here), it was interesting to discover that only 62 miles from
Slough, Neanderthal Man had survived 30,000 years and was alive and
well in Worthing, spending much time in the vice-presidents bar.
Slough could count themselves unlucky to be 1 down at half time.
From the restart, Carbon, who had caused problems throughout the
first half, continued to tease Worthing, easily having the better of
his opponent. Matt Murphy scored first, getting onto a rebound from
the crossbar. The rest of the second half was a bit of a Seedel
cameo, ably aided by Carbon.
Seedel's first came after a bit of a scramble and a save from
Hodges, but his next two were class goals. The final one was all
Seedel's doing. Lost the ball at the edge of the area, chased back,
won it again, drifted sublimely past 2 defenders to slot the ball
A very very good performance and a fitting way to end a very very
good season. I am not certain about this, but could optimistic live
