An early morning fitness test was carried out in Room M1 this morning as the gaffer wanted to confirm that he had his rock at the back and he could play. I was glad to see that Benjamin passed the test and was fit to play. So with the excitement of Mattie C just making the team bus with a minute to spare we set off with Mr P behind the wheel for the first time.
We started slowly and let Pennthorpe score 3 quick goals. The boys then battled hard to regain their composure with Jamie F once again outstanding at the back, putting his body on the line for his team with some great running from Rob in midfield. As the half finished we hadn’t conceded anymore so the boys started to lift their heads. Toby came on for the second half and added a bit of class with some nice turns and passes but unfortunately Pennthorpe scored a further 3 goals to run out 6-0 comfortable winners. As we trudged back to the changing rooms all the boys wished that we had got out of the blocks earlier.
Team: German, Jamie F, Benjamin J, Lani, Mattie C, Joseph G, Rob R, Toby A. IP
