After the game, manager Ben Robinson said "Another great game to watch today (especially considering a heavy pitch and the cold weather!) up against a strong, well-organised and very physical Deans Sports. I can't praise the players enough, we had many chances to go ahead with some great delivery from Oliver Hall, we just weren't quite clinical enough with our finishing".
"A massive improvement defensively and a well deserved Man of the Match performance by Dillan Caldwell. Even though we went 0-2 down we didn't give up and got ourselves back in the game with Daniel Robinson's 11th league goal of the season. The whole team fought on until the final whistle".
"I'm extremely proud of our performance, I think I counted that we had 10 corners, which shows our determination to get forward. Every single player deserves a pat on the back. Thanks parents too, as always"
The Hurricanes squad for the match was: Dillan Caldwell, Oliver Dalton-Bunker, Jamie Maher, Alfie Latham, Oliver Hall, Jaiesh Devani-White, Matthew Elliott, Prestley Smith, Daniel Robinson, Sean Cosgrove.
