0-1 Airbus UK Broughton(March 19th 2010)
The first rain for a while and an absolute deluge
arrived at the Deeside Stadium accompanying a
scrappy game of unappetizing football, largely
bossed by The 'Bus.
The first half was awful, verging on dire. There
were some chances for Airbus though. Giovanni
Feliciello sent a cross over onto Jack Abraham at
the far post, a last ditch header clearing for a
corner. Marc Lloyd-Williams shrugged off his man
but took it too far and chipped lamely wide. Ryan
Edwards lobbed a cross to James McIntosh to send a
delicate header goalwards, headed off the line. He
followed that up by forcing McCormick to drop the
ball before sending a too-gentle hook on target,
again cleared off the line.
The second half wasn't much better but The
Wingmakers were never going to lose and it at
least produced a goal, a fantastic one at that.
Airbus nearly took the lead straight away as Jiws
cleverly played the ball to Macca who steadied,
took aim and forced McCormick to pull off a great
one-handed save for a corner. The goal when it did
arrive was a pearler and came out of nothing. Jack
Abraham found himself in the middle of the park
within acres of space. He looked up, decided to
have a go and curled a wonderfully measured high
drive into the back of the net. Jiws should have
added a second with ten minutes to go, clean
through on goal but managing to get himself in a
right mither somehow and ended up slicing wide
with the help of a deflection. Macca then almost
got the goal he deserved, taking a great ball off
Danny Desormeaux into the area but foiled by the
'keepers boot at the foot of the post.
