Teddington Athletic Seniors v. Ashford Rangers
0 - 5
An unfortunate outing for the TAFC Seniors saw their recent month-long unbeaten run come to a dramatic end; time to pick yourselves up for a bright start to the new year, team! Despite having some key TAFC players missing or injured, we expected an easier ride against one of the bottom teams in the league, but they had bolstered their squad with 5 players (nearly 50% of their starting 11) who were registered this week and the ID cards picked up this morning, and the ensuing strength of the opponents was too much for a Teddington team that admittedly did not have its best game today. There were still some good performances with quality players such as Tom Hodgson, Matt Kidd, Oli King, Conor Whitmarsh, Sam Willis, all doing their best - but we were rather overwhelmed by the Ashford onslaught. Harry Dillamore was a welcome addition to the defence, hope to see more of him when uni allows. This is still a development squad getting to know each other, we still have the potential to do well in 2018. Thanks for all your commitment and input in the last few months, team, have a great Christmas and see you in January.
