Slow start costs RAF footballers in Hartpury University defeat

WATCH: Highlights of Hartpury University v RAF Men

The Royal Air Force men's football team have regretted their poor start after falling to a defeat against Hartpury University.

The RAF found themselves two goals down within in the first 20 minutes, sparking a change in formation and the need for a comeback.

An own goal and a stunning long-range strike from Jake Gosling levelled the scores, but lax marking from a corner led to Hartpury retaking the lead within minutes.

This was the RAF's third match of the new season and they've failed to secure a win - although 15 goals across those games have made the Air Force an entertaining watch so far.

You can see highlights from their loss to Hartpury, including that fantastic Gosling goal, in our video above.
