Walton Casuals v Hartley

Most of my comments tonight are regarding off the field activities, however and most importantly I wish a speedy recovery to Casuals Captain Joe Hicks who left the proceedings very early in the match. To their credit, Casuals played attractive football and created many one on one opportunities throughout that could have secured the points. Some quality goalkeeping from Sam Mason was key and he probably could not have dreamed of a debut performance such as that.
Off field - the Casuals fans were immense for 90 minutes with a varied repertoire of songs despite (evidently) a damaged drum stick - just loved the passion. The Club were great hosts and look forward to their visit to Hartley shortly.
Finally - the singing of the Hartley squad from the changing rooms afterwards told me as a fan, just how much it meant to them to compete effectively at this level. Have a great weekend guys! :-)
