Stunning 3-1 away win at Maidenhead

 First match report from MOUNTAINEER, as per his excellent post on Tiger Talk:

What a game, we had the same referee that refereed the Truro City v Evesham game at Treyew Road recently.
Scotty scored penalty on 63 mins.

This game was frustrating, to go in one nil down against 10 men was unbelievable, I bet there was plenty of swearing in the changing room at half time.

This was not a dirty game as games go, unfortunately the referee sowed the seed of discontent booking anyone who dared move, the Maidenhead fans at our end blamed me for their first sending off, they thought it would have been a yellow until I reminded the referee about it being a last man situation, think of Barry McConnell's sending off on Saturday and it was almost identical except this time we were on the edge of the penalty area.

Marcus scored on 71mins.
From a tame first half the second exploded into "The Referee Show" few if any knew why he booked so many, three sendings off and at least 10 other bookings, there was more going on off the ball that the referee missed, it was exhibition football for the last quarter with Truro City passing the ball about as they liked, I only wish they did it further up the pitch.
Another gutsy performance by the team feeling their way into the big league.

Maidenhead United (1) 1
Brookes (o.g) 19 mins

TRURO CITY ........ (0) 3
Walker (pen) 63 mins
Martin 71 mins
Afful 90+4

Attendance 301

The league website and others credit the second goal to Barry Hayles but Barry's shot was blocked and Marcus Martin following up scored, I was only 6ft away.

Our small band behind the goal did enough to waken the Maidenhead fans from their slumber.
Les Scored on 90 mins.

Another great awayday and superb 3-1 result.
