Chickerell United 2 Portland United Res 1

Saturday 02nd September 2017

Portland United Reserves kick off their Dorset Senior League Season with a narrow defeat at Chickerell Utd.

Kicking down the infamous slope The Blues found themselves behind just before half time as they appealed for an offside flag that didn`t come.

Worse was to come when a mix up between Che Curran and Dan Quinault in the first minute of the second half led to a corner. The resulting corner kick was headed home despite the best efforts of Jordan Moore on the post.

Portland reduced the deficit with 15 minutes left to play when Lance Wilson played in Jack Drummond to score on his competitive debut for the club.

Portland pressed for the equaliser but were unable to find the goal which would have given them a share of the points.

Looking back at the game Portland United Reserves Manager Justin Faulkner commented "A really frustrating afternoon, both goals could have been avoidable. The first we just switched off and the second was miscommunication. We scored one but could have had 3 or 4 more if we had made the most of our opportunities, it was a really good game though where both teams wanted to win."

Faulkner also added "Chickerell is always a hard place to come and get something, they are a good side and know how to play the slope better than anyone. Not many sides will go there this season and get something, but we nearly did. That`s one of the hardest away games out of the way early, our focus turns to Poole Borough next week and trying to pick up points there.

Portland United Reserves : Quinault, Gould, Hankin, Curran, Attree, Anstey, J.Camp, Jones (Wilson), Carlile, Linaker (Jackson), Moore (Drummond).

n Portland United Reserves have appointed Adam Anstey as the captain of the side with Adam Linaker and Matt Camp taking up Vice Captain roles.
