Sutton 20 - Avondale 8 (Surrey Div 1 - 13 August 2009)

This is the part of the season where Sutton and Avondale first teams meet once or twice a week for a month ... It's a good job they generally see eye to eye.

The shoe switched feet again for this encounter (after a heavy defeat for Sutton at Putney, it was Avondale's turn at Morden). The visitors managed to turn up without five of their first team, which was never going to improve their chances even taking account of the return of King Louis to their offence. Having said that, they hung on well and late in the third quarter were only two goals adrift at 10 - 8. From that point on however it was one way traffic as Sutton's better fitness and organisation paid off.

The soft shoe shuffle continues at Putney on Monday.....
