Match report: Abingdon United 6 – Quarry Rovers 1

Abingdon United 6 - Quarry Rovers 1 Sunday 13th November This was (so far) the bitterest pill we have had to swallow. Not only were Abingdon at the bottom of the table with us, they had conceded 14 goals in their previous two games without reply, and were one of the teams promoted to the A league with us, there was the glimmer of hope that Quarry would break their losing streak.

The start was oh-so-promising, this was the fluid, passing game we know Quarry are capable of. A 3-5-2 formation had Azlan and Jacob up front with a back three of Tobi, Joseph and Thomas; the link-up play was crisp, the midfield dropped back to help out at the back and supported the front men in attack, and Quarry matched Summertown in every department.
