Result: Hemingford Red 1 Godmanchester Blue 1

This was a very close encounter between two well matched teams which fittingly ended in a draw. By and large the midfield was bypassed by Godmanchester which meant we had to alter the way we normally play. The Godmanchester striker is the leading goalscorer in our League and their tactic was to get the ball to him as quickly and often as possible. This resulted in us moving Leon Tinker to central defence to withstand this but also to enable us to also get the ball quickly into the Godmanchester half of the pitch. Throughout the match Leon Tinker and Bertie Kemp were outstanding in dealing with the striker. Jake Hooper also had another fine match at right-back. Dan Phillips was always a threat to Godmanchester when he had the ball at his feet and a fine run of his almost ended in the first goal of the match. Shortly afterwards we were awarded a free-kick a few yards outside the Godmanchester area. For the second match running Leon Tinker struck a wonderful free-kick to leave the goalkeeper with no chance. Callum Franklin came on during the first half to make his debut for Hemingford. At half time we led 1-0. The second half was even but we created very few opportunities whereas Godmanchester did have a few half chances. Godmanchester equalised when their leading goalscorer took one of the chances that came his way. There were no further goals and the boys were disappointed at the end not to have won. This shows how much the team has progressed because Godmanchester have finished third in the League and won 2-0 earlier in the season. The Hemingford squad was; Spencer Cordery, Harvey Cantrell, Jake Hooper, Bertie Kemp, Leon Tinker, Tom Best, Robert McCrossan, Kai Hickinson, Logan Wareing, Tom Lynn, Dan Phillips, Ciaran Lyne, Callum Franklin.
