Woking1 Camberley 2
U18 Southern Youth League
8 September 2008
The Woking youngsters gifted the opposition a penalty after just two minutes and thereafter they were always chasing the game. Further poor Woking defending on 19 minutes required Iain McCulley to pull off a tremendous save to his left to keep Woking in the game. However, just one minute later there was little McCulley could do as the Camberley winger got to the by-line and pulled the ball back for their striker to bury the ball in the Woking net.
It took until the 43rd minute for Woking to get back in the game as a nicely-flighted corner from Charlie Turnball found Lewis Parish making a darting run into the box. Parish made no mistake as he powered his header into the roof of the net.
Half-time: Woking 1 Camberley 2
Woking picked their game up for the second half and went on to create sufficient chances to have won the game comfortably but a combination of poor finishing and good goalkeeping meant there was no further score.
Full-time: Woking 1 Camberley 2
In the main this was a competitive and entertaining match with some good phases of play. However,ultimately Camberley were the more determined and, althoughthe Woking lads picked their game up for the second half, the team generally appeared somewhat lacklustre this week.
No Man of the Match award. In fact, it is difficult to pick outmany Woking players who were on top of their game. Probably the best performances came fromCharlie Turnball, Elliott Firth and Iain McCulley but even their decision-making and distribution on occasions was questionable.
