Saturday 28th October, Acrehall Primary, KO 9.30am, League.
Once again, we had a number of absences with 6 players reporting for duty this time. Thankfully though, everyone seemed to be in good shape and on their toes as the ref blew for the start of the match.
Despite Oliver, our goalkeeper being away with the Beavers, we had a very able deputy in Jack who played in goal for the first half.
Thankfully though Jack was rarely troubled as Daire, Alfie, Stewart, George and Logan all dominated possession and really went to town.
The football was fast and once again the passing was a delight to behold. Great credit must be given to all the boys. They worked hard all game and were constantly looking to play the ball quickly to a team mate. It was great to see and I hope that they too can see the value of passing, as we converted a hatful of chances. In fact, at the end of the game, the Referee said that she thought we played superbly. She said it was brilliant to watch how well we passed the ball around. She was extremely impressed as was the Flixton Manager who complimented us on the style of play.
Daire got 5, Alfie got 3, as did Stewart, with George getting a goal worthy of Bryan Robson!
But more importantly for me, and the team, was the number of assists I saw. So well done to Alfie, Daire, Stewart, Jack, George and Logan.
First class all round then, with Daire picking up the MOTM award for his first half 5 star show.
