BTFC vs St. Neots Reserves Match Report
Baldock Town’s game in the Spartan South Midlands Football League against The St. Neots Town Reserves FC was the first meeting between the sides in their history.
The fact that this was an unknown team meant that the St. Neots reserves were an unknown entity to Baldock, which meant it was an interesting game for both the players and the fans.

Baldock Town were looking to get a good result after last week’s disappointing 1-0 defeat to Peterborough Northern Star in the FA Vase which could have easily gone in Baldock’s favour.

Only two changes were made to the Baldock Town team from the last game with Zach Decker and Owen Robertson replacing Louis Lee and Freddie Morris in the starting line-up

The Baldock players showed intent straight from kick-off by putting on pressure on the St. Neots defence. The first half was completely dominated by Baldock with the players having all the significant attacks.

The breakthrough for Baldock came in the 31st minute with Harry Holland making his way into the middle of the box and calmly slotting in a finish into the right-hand side of the goal after a great ball from Lewis Barker.

The half time score line of 1-0 didn’t tell the whole story of how Baldock played as they dominated all the first half not only with attacking intent, but also with the midfield and defence shutting down any sort of attack before it could happen from the St. Neots Reserve players, limiting them to only one clear goal attempt which drifted far and wide.
The score line could have easily been wider but a lot of shots drifted wide or over the goal.

Going into the second half, Baldock didn’t slow down one bit, showing all the intent if not more than what they showed in the first half.

Baldock Capitalised this dominance by scoring another goal in the 52nd minute this time coming from Lewis Barker with him scoring from just inside the box, Lewis Barkers game all round was very impressive dominating the midfield was also creating chances for the attack.

In the … minute a double substitution was made with Alfie Barker and Jack Mordecai coming on for Zach Decker and Mitch Foley This substitution of Alfie Barker would prove to be a great decision with him scoring twice to finish the game off. Alfie was a real threat from attack scoring very shortly after coming on scoring in the 76th minute and then once more in the 87th minute.

Baldock didn’t let this wide score line make them complacent, with all the players from defence to attack showing great determination and passion right through to the final whistle.

This 4-0 score line clearly showed Baldock’s domination throughout the game with the score line being a deserved one. The fans and players were both extremely happy with the 3 points which helps them move up the table.

Lewis Barker was the deserved man of the match for this game with him dominating the midfield providing both defensive stability and attacking threat. The man of the match could've gone to any player on the pith but Lewis was the best of the bunch.

Baldock will hopefully try to carry on this good league form to their next game away against Codicote on Tuesday 31st.
