Well done today guys and massive thank you to everyone who managed to get their lads there. It was a little short notice with the date change of the competition so we had a couple of players missing!
The first game that we played against Swarthmoor Villa was quality. A good 4 – 1 win with Ethan scoring 2, Brandon and Kian scoring 1 each and some brilliant defending and attacking as a team. It was good to see the team work.
The first game was a bit easier then the second game against Hawcoat Minions. We went 3-nil down after Brandon did a silly hand ball offering them a cheap free kick and goal for their 3rd! Ethan scored 2 for a brilliant come back and we actually dominated Hawcoat towards the end of the game but just to seal the deal Hawcoat had a cheeky shot from the half way line that managed to find its way through Mkells gloves. Finished 4 – 2.
I’m sure the 3rd game against Crooklands finished 3 – 1 to Crooklands. In the first 2 games we had plenty of discipline. With no moaning and plenty of talking between the players. The lads were trying their best not to get caught out of position. When Crooklands scored 2 we managed to carry on and get something out of the game. Our passing and team work lead to Kian scoring a peach, right place at the right time and I couldn’t be prouder. The last five minutes of that game was particularly good! The actually looked like the passing team we’ve been desperate for them to be. Some really good close one touch football .
I thought Mkell did some brilliant saves throughout the competition!
We managed to keep a clean sheet in our final game winning 4 – 0 Ethan and Brandon scored 2 each.
