Auletta goal gives firsts opening day win

2 months ago By Gary Brigden

A young SCR side picked up their first opening day league win for a couple of seasons, when a goal on the half hour gave them a win

Auletta struck on the half hour having been released by Daryl Cooper-Smith.

Knaphill had gone closest when a powerful header was superbly tipped over by Ollie Ellaway, before we took control of the first half, but aside from Auletta's goal, chances for Cooper-Smith and Ollie Twum went begging.

We should have increased our lead in the opening fifteen minutes of the half, but again failed to trouble the keeper and Knaphill grew in confidence, and we had to dig deep to hold on for the win.

With seven teenagers involved this was a hard fought win, but the kids showed the mettle when it mattered, and secured all three points
