Constab 1-3 Preston North End
Yes I know we can hardly believe it ourselves. This result was
like Darlington beating Man Utd at Old Trafford. To beat a team
like that and who play their football in the West Lancs league
is quite an unbelievable result for us. We went in this game
hoping to improve our match fitness and learn about keeping our
shape when we didn't have the ball and when we did have the ball
having the confidence to pass it around when under pressure and
that was it nothing more nothing less.
A draw would have been a dream result for us and after the first
20 minutes I thought we will be lucky to hang on for a draw The
police one touch football must have been a joy to watch if you
were watching form the sidelines. It was five minutes before
one of us actually got a touch of the ball.
They passed it around like Brazil every one of there players
was comfortable on the ball and their one touch passing meant
you were chasing shadows for most of the time yet we hung on
in there and even though they had lots of possession they weren’t
really hurting us. Their first goal came as a result of one of
our players doing the wrong thing in the wrong area.
all the time we kept to our game plan and slowly got began to
get more of the ball as the game moved on and eventually we scored
a typical PNE goal. A slick passing movement was built up before
we released Andy and next minute the ball is nestling in the
bottom corner of the net.
Second half more of the same but we always looked dangerous
on the break and two more killer goals sealed a famous victory
for us and even though constab threw everything at us we hung
on for a famous victory. I still can't quite believe it myself
I have played against Constab a lot in my armature days and I
new what a quality side they are so for a bunch of PNE fans to
beat them on their own patch is an unbelievable result
Well done lads and every credit to all of you
