Great effort and play from the boys but no cigar............
Boys don't get their just rewards in an exciting game.
Today we got a performance we wanted from the boys against a good team. Originally planned to be a 9 A side game it changed last minute to 7 a side las AFC had a couple of players who didn't show eaving us with 11 boys to rotate which in fairness didn't help our cause.
We started well creating chances and defending well. The effort from all the boys today was there to see. Unlucky at half time to go in 2-0 down one of which was an own goal that wasn't anyone's fault. The game had got quite physical and as has happened in the past some boys relished in it. At half time the boys were told to really get stuck in and give as good as they got and they certainly did. We had more than enough chances to get back into the game and even win it but some days it just won't go in! At the other end Harry in goal made some superb saves and kept Wembley at bay when needed.
Today all the boys stepped up but Harry, Oliver, Tyrai and Tajuan had performances that stood out with Tajuan getting MOM.
Also a pat on the back to Sam and Lewis T who probably spent more time on the sides (downside of being the coaches son!) due to the number of boys at the game and didn't complain and when they were on the pitch done well.
