Millwey Rise Reserves went down 6-2 when they visited Sidmouth Town fourths, writes Dick Sturch.
It took Millwey most of the first half to shake off the effects of the long lay-off. After 20 minutes, they were three goals down, but they did manage to pull one back when Mark Pike put the ball into the Sidmouth net before they in turn scored once more to go into the break with a 4-1 advantage.
At the resumption, the home side put the Millwey defence under evermore pressure, which resulted in another goal before Stuart King got the ball in the net to bring the score back to 5-2. The final goal for Sidmouth came from a penalty.
In a difficult game for Millwey after the long break, everyone found the going hard. Manager Mark Enticott`s nomination for the Man of the Match honour went to Sam Turner, who put in a great, all-round performance for the team.
On Saturday (January 20), Millwey Rise Reserves entertain Sandford Reserves at Cloakham Lawns (2.15pm).
