Hartley (Miller)

Our Reserves had a very good win, although the margin over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge was by the only goal of the match. This came during the first half, Peter Brabrook doing an "overlap" on the right wing with Dave Llewelyn and then centering for Paul Heffer to net. The team gave a generally good all-round display, the score avenging the 1-2 reverse we suffered at the Blues' hands here in February- This victory moved us a couple of places up the table.

The in-and-out form of our Reserve team was underlined when they lost a very poor game to Gillingham Reserves at Upton Park. The lowly-placed Kent club gave only a moderate display, but they well deserved their 2-0 margin which was most disappointing.

1967-68 Combination

Our second-string recovered its equilibrium after their defeat three-days earlier to win by the only goal at Walsall, Their third successive away victory by a 1-0 scoreline.

A 0-4 defeat at Highbury brought an end to a run of three successive away victories; we were only one goal in arrears at half-time and might well have equalised soon after the resumption, but the Gunners then put on more pressure and we conceded three further counters.

 

We led by a single goal at the interval against Plymouth Argyle Reserves at Upton Park, and increased the margin to 4-2 in a second-half scoring spree; this was our last home game of 1967-68 in this competition, and we returned to a winning note after two previous home defeats.
