MATCH REPORTS APRIL 2024

Sandhurst Town 4-0 T&MU

 

Tooting made a disastrous start the game when a mix up in defence presented Sandhurst with the opening goal in just the 8th minute.  From that point on, the home side were in the ascendency and probably should have added to their score.  Indeed it wasn't until stoppage time in the first half that Tooting had their first attempt on target when Mbango had a clever chip shot palmed away by the keeper.

Tooting started the 2nd half with a lot more intent and were spending a lot of time in and around the home team's box.  But the good work was undone when an unfortunate deflection off O'Brien found the net when the original shot was going well wide.  Still Tooting pushed forward, but to credit the Sandhurst defence they prevented the Terrors from creating any gilt edged chances.  As Tooting pushed forward, they were slightly exposed at the back and Sandhurst made the most of this with some clinical finishing and finished the afternoon 4-0 victors.  Tooting might feel the final scoreline was a little harsh.

Minchin; Dack (Porteous), O'Brien, Hutchings, Ojo; Mbango, Melody, Adeosun (Daye), Kelo; Quiassaca (Reed), Loyza. Subs not used: Munoz, Caulton.

 

Redhill 5-1 T&MU

 

Tooting were punished for a lack lustre performance at Redhill and were 4 down at half time.  Some Tooting fans were consulting the record books as Redhill carved through our defence at will and were 3-0 up within 13 minutes.  There were more chances for the home side and it was no surprise when they added a 4th before half time.

Tooting responded quite well in the 2nd half and managed to put some pressure on the Redhill defence that at one point in the game consisted of 3 former Tooting left backs!  Tooting's pressure paid off when Brennan found some space in the box and clinically despatched the ball away for his 33rd league goal of the season.  But there was to be no miracle comeback and Redhill had the final say, adding a 5th late on.

 

Minchin; Dack (Porteous), O'Brien, Gonsalves, Ojo; Loyza, Melody (Caulton), Adeosun (Hutchings), Kelo; Quiassaca (Munoz), Brennan. Sub not used: Byatt

T&MU 0-2 Jersey Bulls

An amazing, friendly atmosphere before the game. Jersey Bulls fans had travelled at 10am from Jersey to Gatwick and put up flags at the Crown Pub before parading to the ground.

It was a close first half with not too much goalmouth action.

H-T 0-0.

A fantastic Jersey goal in the 68th minute as the ball is picked up and put high right Lorne Bickley to beat Jack Minchin. T&M 0 Jersey 1.

Jersey made it 2-0 in 2nd half added time with a close range shot by Miguel Carvalho.

Man of the match was Shay Brennan who worked hard but to no avail this time.

So just one home game left against Champions Farnham Town where there will be no doubt another bumper crowd.
