SteveC: Before I forget, for me the funniest moment on Saturday was in the 1st half when a ball boy tried to throw the ball to Bazza from about 10 yards away for him to take a throw in and managed to actually throw the ball over the stand and out of the ground!!
I don't think anyone else saw it and I had to try and explain why I almost wet myself laughing.
EssexBoy: We really should have 4 up at half time. Yetti hit the bar and we came close on a number of occasions. Definite pluses were Barrington and Yetti who looked a lot sharper. Tim was okay after treatment and although we looked the better team (especially in the first half) Thurrock were well organised and had a decent (albeit 12 year old ) keeper.
Highlight of the day was Gary the Hat losing a quid in the Pringle machine. I did point out that this was 'bladdy Essex mate.'
Mountaineer: Home at 9.30pm, over 12 hours since I set out this morning, is it worth it? YES.
A game of few memories, Barry Hayles tortured the Thurrock defence all afternoon but blatent misses by Stewart Yetton (10 mins) and Dan Smith (16 mins).
17 mins 2 Thurrock players collide with each other resulting in a Truro free kick (work that one out),
20 Mins Thurrock hit the crossbar should have scored but it went to ground and was cleared.
21 mins, open goal and Thurrock miss,
31 mins GOAL Barry Hayles doing what he does best, turned the defence inside out and slotted the ball away.
32 mins Fantastic save by Tim Sandecombe, point blank range.
37 mins David Partridge (Thurrock) booked
44 mins Free Kick Walker to Yetton ball hits crossbar, out for goal kick.
From half time on the game died, little incident until the unforgivable happened Thurrock scored after 86 mins 1-1.
A draw was possibly the right result, Thurrocks determination v Truro's TIREDNESS, all the traveelling takes it's toll and two journeys in 5 days certainly contributed today.
THURROCK ...... (0) 1 Bowbitch 86 mins.
Booking David Partridge 37 Mins Yellow card.
TRURO CITY .... (1) 1 Hayles 31 mins.
