Match 4 – 19th November 2004: Jack Flash v Southern Fairies, Northern Monkeys

Fairies make a monkey out of the Flash

In this cold Friday afternoon clash, Jack Flash met their sternest test in the form of Southern Fairies, Northern Monkeys. A well organised opposition weathered pressure at the back well and turned this pressure round very effectively on the counter-attack. SFNM took a 3 goal lead against stand-in goalkeeper Ed Green, when John pulled a goal back with a determined run in from the left channel. The pressure from the opposition was too much for the Flash however, as they slumped to a 5 2 half time scoreline, another from John. The second half saw Ed substituted for Piers in goal, but with the defence boosted, the attack was missing something, some promising forays into the Monkeys' half were fruitless as Jack Flash were yet again rueing missed chances. Mark managed to pull back a consolation with a run in from the right, followed by a well-placed shot with the outside of the foot. Captain Ed Green was left hoping for improvements in marking and finishing, "we've got 4 strikers, and bad finishing" as Jack Flash were hit with their first competitive defeat since their 19 2 cup exit last year. The scoreline 8 3 to the challengers.
