mix match dales go down fighting at loughton

Glendale travelled to Loughton this week with a mixture of Saturday, Sunday and trial players to face a side entering the IDFL this season once more.

With a whole team of players not available the Dales were only able to field 11 players on day which typified the British weather. One minute the heat was unbearable and 20 minutes later, you were running for shelter from the rain.

The match was extremely even the entire way through and for a side that barely had any players that had played together before, it was an extremely encouraging performance.

Loughton took the lead however against the run of play after Loughton's striker broke clear and rounded the Salmon to make it 1-0.

Just moments later however, Rick Baker's clever ball sent Gav Hayes clear and he squared to trialist Aburto to score from 10 yards out and make it 1-1.

Just before the break Loughton got ahead once more, a defensive misjudgement allowing the Loughton to lob the Salmon and make it 2-1.

Glendale battled hard through the second half despite the fitness starting to affect the game and on numerous occasions should have drawn level but a late goal from Loughton put paid to any comeback as the game ended 3-1.
