A great start to the season with a 5 : 2 win against a team we always have good, competitive games. We started very slowly and were understandably a little rusty throughout the game. However despite surviving some early pressure and then hitting the woodwork three times we gained a deserved win. Ashtead took the lead mid-way through the first half however that seemed to wake the Casuals up and Alex Clay equalised with a well taken goal. With the downhill slope in their favour for the second half, Casuals took the lead with a smart finish from Finn Mitchell following a long throw. However, that lead was thrown away with a soft goal direct from a free kick. Again Casuals responded well and following Matteo Hutton being brought down in the box Oli Burke slotted home the resulting penalty. Finn Mitchell then doubled his tally following a powerful run and finish to ease any nerves and Jude Murray then finished off the job with a hooked volley following a goalmouth scramble.
(Scorers : Finn Mitchell (2), Oli burke, Jude Murray, Alex Clay)
