 The Wingmakers - Match Report 2009/10



Cefn Druids 1-1 Airbus UK Broughton(March 10th 2010)
On a day when Chester City were finally put out of their misery (a bit like hearing the ex-wife had died) Airbus chose to mark the occasion of an end to years of largely inconsequential football at Sealand Road and The Deva with a suitably dire performance of their own. Back was the crab-like movement, erratic punts and almost total unawareness of the boundaries of the woodwork round the goal that let a young & poor Druids side harry their way to what was very nearly only their second win of the season.
The first half passed by virtually devoid of noticeable activity on a freezing evening. Craig Whitfield calmly strode forward and as no-one challenged him scored into the bottom corner to put the home side ahead. Up until then Airbus had looked comfortable and in no danger. Too comfortable, too relaxed, they struggled to take control as Druids shut up shop, the only close shave coming when Ricky Wright headed off the line from a Lloyd-Williams hook.
The second half was almost as awful, The 'Bus fannying around and finding striped shirts with far too many aimless passes. Yet again they showed they were unable to cope with a team whose sole concern was to scurry around, hustling & bustling and packing the final third, without coming forward unless they were forced to. Airbus had great chances, though. Carl Owen was presented with a header from a terrific Jamie Smith cross, unfortunately straight at Mullock to tip over and James McIntosh scooped at a ball played into the area and blasted a left footer over when some composure & aim was needed. In between Druids missed an open goal at the far post as the offside trap failed and as time ticked by Jamie Crowther headed a glorious free one over with the goal at his mercy. Airbus, for all their deficiencies, were to their credit now working hard and persistence paid off with The Ancients bench screaming for the final whistle and a famous victory. With over four minutes of added time on the clock a sudden surge saw a right royal ping around, Jiws finally stabbing home from a rebound off Mullock. Starlight robbery maybe and if it wasn't for the anguished big-nosed Wayne Phillips' Wxm connection you'd have felt sorry for him. Almost.
Chester City RIP. Come on The 'Bus!!!!!!!!!!
