Dulwich lost 1-0 to Brentford’s second string, a game which Brentford could have won 4-0 with more judicious finishing, equally Dulwich could have won 4-1 with, well, more judicious finishing.
A clash of styles, Brentford’s drilled pattern play against Dulwich’s more individual style. The Bees players were technically a mile ahead of their opponents yet physically a mile behind. Really makes me question the set up of English football at youth level and behind the first team. I’m all for technique, and I prefer that over sheer physique, but there has to be a balance, these lovely talented footballers have to have a chance when up against men.
Anyway, £6 entry, met some old friends, made new acquaintances, a decent evening all in.
