Rovers concede two early goals and then defend for 70 minutes

AFTER gaining their first point of the season last week, Lyme Regis Rovers were hoping to get more points on the board away to Perry Street League Division One at Misterton.

Alas, it was not to be although  they put in a good performance against a very strong Misterton side.

The Rovers conceded  both goals in in first 10 minutes.  Keeper Matt Fry had both hands on the ball but the ref failed see it as the striker kicked it out of his hands to open the scoring and a second came quickly afterwards.

The  Rovers lost former club captain Tim Edwards with groin injury 15 minutes into the game. Edwards was drafted in to enable the Seasiders to field 11 men but there were no  substitutes to take his place.

Rovers defended well as a team for 70 minutes to prevent any further goals.

Manager Staff Taylor said: “Considering the Misterton first team had no game and a few dropped down to play. Matt Fry excellent in goal and great too have Mike Knight back playing. Whole team deserve the credit to sticking at it with no subs after Tiny went off and digging in to keep the score at 2-0.”
