The first match was against the police of Manchester who were playing in Dark blue Manchester City kits as we played in our Raging Bull made, GAP Personnel sponsored kits. The match was fast paced with the men in blue challenging hard and fast. Going 1-0 down in the first couple of minutes the Dragons raged on with near misses from Josh Daniels, Dave Simpson and Mark Williams. The Manchester squad were power shooting from range with shots being blocked one after another, a shot blocked by Gaz Roberts hit the roof and a free kick was given which had the Dragons confused as the rules stated that if a ball was to hit the roof, a throw in would be given. Asleep at the free kick the Dragons conceded their second and quickly a third as they struggled to rearrange the squad. The fourth and final goal of the match came after a ball was battled for and controlled by the arm which the referee failed to spot from the halfway line.
