Testwood start the season with a win!
On a warm Saturday morning in September, Testwood started their league campaign against a strong TKS side. The game started well for Testwood and arguably should’ve been 3-0 up after ten minutes. Sadly, the away side were undone on the counter attack and a neat finish. Moments later, after some slick passing Testwood had an opportunity to score, which was saved by a TKS defender…..with his hands! After much deliberation, the player was sent off and Testwood dispatched the penalty. With the half time whistle looming, Testwood pushed for a second and managed to take the lead after a goal mouth scramble and a confident finish. 2-1 at half time to Testwood.
In the second half the game really opened up but credit to TKS, they played some excellent football with ten men. After a slightly miss-hit corner bounce across the TKS goal mouth however, Testwood extended their lead with a well finished header. Moments later TKS replied with a winding run and cool finish. Testwood managed to hang on and secured the 3 points.
