Lex X1 1-3 Airbus UK Broughton (October 3rd 2009)

There are fewer nicer places to watch football than a sunny autumn day at Stansty Park, with its estate parkland backdrop and wind-rustled trees just starting to turn colour. It's even nicer when Airbus comfortably dispose of their opposition with the minimum of fuss, although they did try and make it a little more difficult than necessary and missed a bagful of chances.

Lex were well-organised but unable to really come to terms with the gap between Cymru Alliance & Welsh Premier and almost seemed resigned to their fate from the beginning. Giovanni Feliciello hit the post direct from a corner in the first minute. The opening goal arrived after 17', Paul McManus scoring after a Marc-Lloyd Williams shot had been blocked, controlling the resultant little cross and driving the ball home. After Lex had sliced a good chance wide Jiws added the second with a rocket into the bottom corner from a Gio free kick that was headed out and fell nicely for him to pounce. Generously they allowed Michael Santangeli to pull one back immediately, just to keep the game alive; in such a gentle, relaxed game, played in good spirit they evidently felt there was no need to humiliate their hosts unnecessarily.

Despite lots of 'f......' motivation coming out of the Lex dressing room at the break the game seemed done and dusted two minutes into the second half, Ryan Edwards slamming in a penalty. He nearly got a second a couple of minutes later, the 'keeper doing well to tip over. Airbus naturally enough wanted to help out a bit and handed Lex a penalty of their own - Kristian Rogers was having none of the silliness, though, brilliantly diving away to his left to fend the ball away. If Lex were going to waste such opportunities Airbus were not going to play along anymore and suddenly laid siege to the home goal, although a fourth just wouldn't come, Jiws with a number of attempts and Matty Cook as well, all foiled by the Lex custodian. In the end, however, a job well done.
