A highly enjoyable friendly at Sleaford today and some new friends were made.
The game itself was a real to and fro affair with the Strollers eventually coming out on top 8-9. Sleaford are relatively new to walking football and have only just started playing competitive games but they have a good little set up and some excellent players.
The Strollers took a while to adjust to the compact 'cage' style pitch and were chasing the game for most of the first 15mins. We eventually got to grips with it though and started to play some better football.
Going into the final 15 minutes we found ourselves two goals down, but we were able to dig in and pull it back to just pip the Sleaford lads.
Our thanks to the Sleaford for their hospitality and the excellent buffet they put on after the game.
