2nd IX Football v Cottesmore

30th September 2016

Another sunny September day and the 2’s, fresh from their previous victory were good to go. The ranks were bolstered by the arrival of Alex M who slotted nicely into the midfield. We have rarely been successful against Cottesmore 2’s but today we played our best football by far. From keeper to strikers all the boys got involved and showed real determination both in attack and defence. Cottesmore were a good side but our passing game was working well and were deservedly 1 – 0 up at the break. A tight game meant that the bench were not used at the break, however when we scored again Freddie, Karan and Nick joined the fray. Despite conceding a late goal victory was ours.

From my perspective the best thing was the way in which the boys tried to play, keeping the ball on the deck and looking to pass at every opportunity. We are certainly getting better but there are some challenges ahead. Will, Ben B, Austin, Luca, Sam D, Alex, Sam S, Joseph and Kye together with the boys on the bench all deserve a real pat on the back. Well done as the performance matched the fabulous weather, it would be great if both continued.
