NCH MK Sunday League: Knibbs previews Nags Head fixture

Nags Head joint-manager Mike Knibbs spoke ahead of their New City Heating MK Sunday league encounter today.

This week we head over to Bradwell Pavilion to take on Interact FC who we faced two weeks ago. That game started off end to end with Interact taking the lead early on, but we then hit back with a goal from Luke O’Connell to level the scores. A few moments later, to our disbelief, an Interact defender played  a ball back to his keeper which subsequently ended up in the back of the net to put us 2-1 up within ten minutes. Interact went on to score twice more before half time but we went into the break feeling that we still had a chance to get back into the game. Sloppy play at the start of the second half allowed Interact to take a 4-2 lead. Unfortunately, we were caught out by a very good team when we were having a bad day at the office, losing every first and second ball and being generally outplayed. interact picked us apart again with another goal to make it 5-2, which was eventually the final score. We did how ever show we still had some fight left in us with a near missed free kick from Harry Heritage and two very good shots from Steve Holmes, the first of which produced an incredible save from their keeper with the second hitting the inside of the post and rebounding out. It just wasn’t our day, and the result left us 6th in the league and heading into a fixture with 7th placed Newport Pagnell Town.

Knowing that if Newport won they’d go above us, we kicked off looking to end their good form of 3 wins on the bounce. Again we started poorly,  giving away an early penalty which was easily saved by Rafe Birch-White. We soon found ourselves 2-0 down and left wondering whether we’d met our match. Just before the break Charlie Willis was brought down in the box by a high boot to win us a penalty which Harry Heritage confidently stepped up to take, only for the ball to be palmed out by the keeper, but Harry reacted quickly to put away the rebound. We went in 2-1 down at the break, but with our tails up and we started the second half with confidence. This soon paid off with goals from Luke O’Connell and Dan Chittenden putting us into the lead for the first time in the game, and with twenty minutes to go Ash Hack came on and killed the game with a great strike into the top right hand corner to put us 4-2 up and win the game. The boys showed great character to dig deep at half time and come back for the win and put us 6 points clear in 6th place and only 1 point behind 5th place Eagles Athletic. We have to try and take the same mentality we had when we came back from 2-0 down into this week, when we face Interact again, and try and push into the top half of the table.

NCH Sun Lge: Nags Head looking to continue their positive start

Nags Head joint manager Mike Knibbs has spoken to Sports Shots as his side continue their excellent season in the New City Heating Sunday League this morning.

Knibbs told Sports Shots;

This Sunday sees us host Interact FC which will be a tough game for us, as they currently sit in second place in the league after finishing third last season. With us already notching wins over Padbury BT and Eagle Athletic, who were the two teams that finished above them last season, they’ll definitely not take us lightly.

We are quietly confident that, after strengthening our squad this season with young and exciting players from the local development teams of Winslow and Buckingham, on our day we could give any team in the New City Heating Sunday Premier league a run for their money. We had a shaky start to the season with having to integrate new players, but we’ve found our feet now with wins over the top two teams from last year and having completed the double over our local rivals Buckingham United A this past Sunday with an emphatic 5-1 win.
