- AFC MONTON U8 LIONS V U8 TORNADOES
Saturday 20th January, Trafford Soccer Dome, KO 12pm, Friendly.
Another indoor friendly, against Monton Lions, saw the Tornadoes at least getting some match practice during this horrible Winter snap.
Although we'd only played Monton two weeks previous, and in the same venue, this was a much better and grittier display from the boys!
Hampered with having no substitute options, I'm reliably informed that the whole team pulled together and were extremely disciplined and focused on the job in hand.
Despite conceding a few goals, the defending was a lot better than in recent weeks and once again Oliver stole the show, with another master class in goal keeping.
At the other end, Daire notched one and Stewart added a brace to give the scoreline a very respectable hue.
A satisfactory day then boys, with Oliver keeping hold of the MOTM award!
