Burnham 2-1 Rebels
by Ted on 12/08/2006

Jamie Jarvis's first goal for the club wasn't enough to avoid defeat in our final pre-season game.

The Report
Burnham's ground has certainly been improved by the addition of a car park, and if Slough aren't playing it now presents an easy alternative venue to watch football. Friendly fans as well, which is always appreciated.

As to the game itself, Slough struggled in some phases, but also played well in others. Without Adam Wallace (injured) and Steve Daly, Slough started uncertainly, and Burnham had the better of the opening 20 minutes, hitting the crossbar with one shot, and going near with another. As time went on Slough settled and edged the possession without the front line being able to impose themselves. The lack of a presence upfront again meant that the opposing defence was never really drawn out of position, limiting the effect that McCleary and Mason have. They will have more effect on the game if they get some more space to work in.

Nil all at half time, Slough fans were looking forward to continued improvement in the second half, but it wasn't to be. Seven minutes into the half Burnham took the lead after a goal mouth scramble during which the ball should really have been cleared, which allowed Rob Saunders to poke home from close range. Soon afterwards it was 2-0 when a long throw in to the near post was headed on for an unmarked Ben Swift to easily nod in.

Several substitutions followed for each side, and Slough pushed to get back into the game, which they did after 75 minutes when McCleary headed back across the goal for Jarvis to rise up and head in from close range.

After this Slough pushed for an equaliser, with sub and trialist Alex Gibson showing good close control and the ability to turn a defender, but Burnham held out for the win.
