Hatherleigh Town v Exeter Civil Service
November 18th 2006

Hatherleigh 7 v 2 Exeter CS

Exactly 8 months to the day since our last visit, we got the chance to visit the Okehampton Road ground to see Town play again. With several new faces, a new coach and a new strip things look a fair bit different. The score line also looks much better than last year and the lads are doing well, about half way up the league.

We arrived late (kick off was at 2.15pm!) so we only caught the last 15 minutes - sorry. But it looked like a great match with some good open play, some cracking runs and some great finishing (well nearly always). Hopefully, we can cover more action soon.

A new lens (don't tell the wife!) means better long distance shots, though most of the pics below were taken with the short focus zoom as we still need to practise a bit with the long lens. Two pics show what can be done.

Sequence 1

( Goalie): I think I'll go left


Oh s***!

Too late!

Try again!

No chance!

Maybe he'll miss

Number 7!

If you do that again I'll break your leg!

Sequence 2

Off goes Millie ...

... with a great running shot

Will it go in?

It's high

Finally, two long lens shots to show you what is to come
