REPORT: Longlevens 1-2 Thame United

Longlevens lost their third game on the spin on Saturday afternoon missing out narrowly to a good Thame United side.

The afternoon started well for the home side when from a corner a good interchange between Jonty Welch and Brad Martin gave Martin space to cross the ball and Ed Smylle tapped home at the back post.

Longlevens then endured large amounts of pressure from Thame but were thwarted but a mixture of some strong levens defending and the woodwork.

The second half started in the same fashion as this first with Thame having some long periods of possession. 

Thame eventually levelled when too much space was given to allow a cross into the box and the ball was headed home at the back post past the palms of Ollie Hall.

The visitors took the lead when a knock down in the box found an unmarked Gledhill who fired home from just over six yards out.

Thame  sat in to defend the lead that they had allowing to attack at will. Craig Martin thought he had scored when he rounded the keeper but saw his attempt cleared off the line.

Another loss then for Longlevens but an improvement from the previous weeks performance. French reflected on the game by saying “we were unlucky today but gave away two sloppy goals which cost us.”

Longlevens travel to Abingdon United on Tuesday night.
