DBFC 2-3 HK rep team ex pros

Monday 27 February 2023 at Wong Chuk Hang, K.O. 6.30p.m.

Team: Mark/Adam, Morse, Steve, Mike/ Fela, Neil M, OB, Resco/ Hymsey/ Greg. Initial subs: Kieran C, Ricky.

Scorers: Fela, Hymsey.

No team selection problems with Kieran C and GK Mark scheduled as late arrivals, so Ricky filled in for Mark for the first 10 minutes. The ex pros had their usual mixture of old pros and more mobile younger players. They dominated possession for the first 20 minutes and went ahead after a left foot cross from RW was met on the half volley by their striker, with Morse calling for a VAR check. At the end of the second quarter, they went further ahead with a shot from outside the penalty area looping over Mark. We got more into the game and started to create chances but nothing clear cut, most of our effort being to contain them. Things got interesting in the final 15 minutes with Fela first of all scoring a rare goal to make it 1-2 and then soon after giving up cheap possession that led directly to their goal. 1-3 and seemingly game over but then Hymsey almost walked one in from close range to make it a more respectable 2-3. An enjoyable game as ever against the pros of yesteryear.
