Wed 19th October 2005 Garnett A 0 (0) vs. (1) 3 Z Lions.
A very bad day at the office for the green and black saw the A's fall far short of the standard set in the first two games of the season.
Due to Z Lions inability to get a team out they have been replaced in the league by Castle Leazes A who play under the Z Lions banner.
Soon though Z lions got their breakthrough when they raided down the A's left hand side and too easily managed to get their ball into the box for their striker to rifle his effort home from twelve yards.
For a while the A's managed to put together some decent football and a moment of brilliance from Heslop saw him turn on the outside left of the box before unleashing a great shot that cannoned off the underside of the bar to a covering defender.
The second half seemed to be what hopefully will be a one off for the A's as they started to get frustrated and argue with one another. This in turn meant heads dropped further and Z Lions took full advantage scoring twice more the third A good strike from twenty yards that went into the bottom corner.
On A positive note man of the match was given to debutante Jamie Mills who had a good game on his call up to the A's with a strong and composed defensive performance.
Team: K Harty, J.Mills (MoM), G.Polzin, C.Pearce, A.Smith, D.Mercer, H.Tomei, M.Hill,
