Brief report on the Old Salesians win:
The first team visited Old Salesians and in spite of a few late changes the players adapted well to different positions on their 4G surface. In a competitive first half the Old Boys took longer to settle. But a goal from Abdul mid-way through the half gave them the lead at HT.
The Old Boys took control of the second half with Abdul scoring twice more. Elliott scored a penalty he won, Sean scored after good work from Harry and Phil slotted home with the last kick of the game. The hosts did have a couple of opportunities but in general the unfamiliar defence did well.
