Presteigne St Andrews FC 3 Saints First Team 3

Adi Lawford 1) Jack Biggs (2)

The first team were left frustrated after a 3-3 draw away at Presteigne. We took the lead in the third minute when a cross from Rob Snedden was spilled by the home team keeper and tapped in by Adi Lawford. Five minutes later there were strong appeals for a penalty for a handball by a Presteigne defender but nothing was given. After some poor defending, but decent finishing the home side scored two goals to find themselves ahead. We saw another penalty appeal turned down, hit the bar and had a goal disallowed before Jack Biggs eventually equalized to make it 2-2. Some more bad decision making from the Saint’s back line was capitalized on once more and finished well by Neil Walmsley to put the home side 3-2 ahead at the break.

The Saint’s started the second half much better and leveled the game again through Jack Biggs. We piled on the pressure throughout the half and had a lot of good chances to win it but all credit to Presteigne they battled hard and earned a point.
