70_12_05 WHU v. Bristol Rovers Reserves

We fielded a very young side at Dean Court against Bournemouth, the "veteran" being Brian Dear who was making his re-appearance in our colours. the Cherries also had several youngsters on show, and the game was played in a most enthusiastic manner. Clive Charles netted his second goal of the campaign, and Dear got the winner in our 2-1 success.

The Hammers arrival at Filbert Street was delayed until 2.45 p.m. owing to a transport breakdown on the M1. This meant a hasty change, and after that the Hammers' second-string never really settled down. A single goal from 25-yards drive after a quarter-of-an-hour's play sufficed to settle the issue in the homesters' favour, although ex-Hammer Colin Mackleworth did well in goal to repel his former team-mates.

This evening's play-off is the 1969-70 Final, having been held over from last season as there was no opportunity to fit it into the complicated schedule during last April.

There was an attendance of 4,111 to see Ken Wallace excellently converted a pass from Paul Heffer in the 17th minute to give us a deserved lead. this might well have been added to in the 32nd and 87th minutes when Brian Dear struck the woodwork with two tremendous drives. The desperation of the Arsenal rearguard was especially underlinded on three occasions; twice we were of the opinion that we should have been awarded a penalty-kick, and the third instance was when Paul Heffer was hualed down from behind by a rugby-type tackle when literally yards clear of the defence.
