Jets Fail To Fire Against Flackwell
Oxhey Jets 0 Flackwell Heath 4
Spartan South Midlands Premier
26th February 2022
Jets came into the match hopeful of narrowing the gap with the top eight, but were outplayed in a heartless performance at the Boundary, with a performance reminiscent of a team playing the season out.
Stupid, pointless petty free kicks and inexplainable errors killing Jets in a first half that only Brad Shaw in the Jets goal stopped it from being a complete thumping as he almost alone limited it to 0-3 at the break.
Two debuts were made within the substitutes at halftime with Finbar King and Harry Brady coming on and two very positive debuts they were too as they helped Jets in a much better second half.
It must be said the only goal scored was again another awful blunder in the Jets leaky defence. Jets’ task was then made so much harder by a head loss of two yellow cards for Vass Mandeville, one of the Jets most consistent players.
New arrival Finbar’s first shot was the best Jets’ effort of the match as it thumped the post with the keeper beaten, where our other efforts rarely stayed within the ground.
Very, very poor performance right across the team sheet, and, it’s fair to say, an upset coaching staff who will not accept this effort as a season play out.
