Due to a sickness bug, we began the game with a depleted squad and with a makeshift starting line-up. With many of the team playing out of position, it took our boys a while to get into the game. Far too often, they were guilty of ball watching and of sloppy marking. Ardingly capitalised on our failure to do the basics and went ahead 4-0. It took the Fs captain, Ayush, to settle the ship by battling fiercely and not giving the opposing team an inch. In the dying embers, his determination and unwillingness not to give up paid off as we snatched back a goal via Ameer.
Looking ahead to future games, I hope the rest of the team follow Ayush’s example and remember to play with greater fortitude and belief.
