G-TV Presents…

...the third video - Chichester vs Leicester.Watch hereThe frustrating thing about this game is that damned last second TD. Watching the game back, you can see that we had a strong 2nd half and if we'd just been able to make one or two big plays we would've had this game, I'm sure.Nevermind, thats all in the past now. I'm looking forward to our next game in a fortnight!
