FIXTURE: Mens 7th XI VS 19/09/2020
HEADLINE: Good mix of youth and experience
VENUE: UEA SPORTSPARK
RESULT: NORFOLK NOMADS 1 NORWICH CITY 7 5
City contained a good mix of youth and experience with debuts at this level for Louis Preston. City had an early let-off when a Nomads short corner found it's way into the net, but was chalked off for a foot before it crossed the line. After a hesitant start City started to find their way and made good inroads down the right flank where Ed Beake and father Dave Beake combined nicely. Midway through the half the ball found its way to Corey Rushton in the circle who finished with a reverse stick shot. He added a second ten minutes later with another ripping reverse stick shot after some good combinations down the right hand side. Nomads then struck back through a short corner before City added a third on the stroke of half time courtesy of the evergreen Dave Woodward.
City were really into their rhythmn in the second half moving the ball around and created several chances. It was no surprise when Dave Woodward added his second after good work from Corey Rushton. Dave Woodward then thought he had completed his hat-trick with the deftest of touches, but the umpire thought otherwise. With a minute remaining City added a fifth when Louis Miller pounced on a loose ball following a short corner breakdown and smashed the ball home. A good victory before league matches commence. New boy Louis Preston performed well and could do well at higher levels.
