Team Yardley Men’s 1st Team
Opponent Droitwich
Date January 7, 2018
Result Loss
Score 0 – 4

On Sunday Yardley faced their nearest rivals at the bottom of the league with a depleted side. Droitwich scored early on and put their visitors under constant pressure. Yardley kept their defensive shape well but were limited to a few break-away chances. In spite of having limited their hosts to a single goal at the break, Yardley could not do much to improve things during the second half. Half way through Droitwich doubled their lead before two late goals clinched the result. The second was scored right at the end of the game. Yardley skipper, Zach Jarvis, had won yet another tackle in defence and had surged forward beating several defenders before passing to a supporting player. Yardley claim his pass hit a defender’s foot but as Yardley waited for the whistle, Droitwich raced upfield and scored their fourth with the last action of the game.

Having caught up with their back-log without any success, Yardley begin the second half of the league with a home game against Old Wulfrunians.
