Bore Draw But First Point Of The Season For Tooting

Article by Official TMUFC

Tooting picked up their first point of the season as they were held to a goal less draw at home to Marlow this afternoon in what can best be described from a spectator point of view, as “a drab encounter”.

There were very few scoring opportunities in the opening 45 minutes with the defences pretty much on top at both ends of the field as the sides went in at the break 0-0

The second half was a little more lively with Billy Dunn coming close on a couple of occasions, once shooting just over the bar and then shortly afterwards, just wide of the ‘keeper’s left hand post. The only other real effort on goal came when half time substitute, Dominic Morgan-Griffiths, got his head to the ball at the end of a well worked move, glancing it just wide of the upright.

Whilst disappointing not to get the victory, there will still be positives for the new management team to take from this game, particularly the clean sheet following last week’s final 15 minute capitulation at Northwood.
