The first half had no goals but it had plenty of action and those of us at the sea-wall end could not understand how we didn’t score. But it was good to see Canvey getting forward so well and using the full width of the pitch. We dominated the mid-field and from there we went on to command the whole of the pitch. Witham, on the other hand, found it very difficult to make any real dent in the home defence and Ricky had very little to do.
The second half was even better. Dominant play and plenty of goals. Things started to go right for Canvey and we were winning the 50/50 balls, we were challenging for absolutely everything and we were picking up the second balls. Our passing was sweet and once the ball came forward to Leon then the whole ground waited in anticipation for something exciting to happen. Leon went on to win the Man of the Match and nobody anywhere near me could find any reason to disagree with the decision.
Seems to me the lads have grown up a lot over the past couple of weeks and now appear to be much stronger physically and much more single minded in their approach to the game.
Well done to everybody on a great performance and a brilliant result.
