Fantastic Game of Football
By David Vine
Two teams, One football, One tactic : Counter attack!
They say football is a game of two half’s, well this game was a game of one tactic, counter attack. The first 10 minutes I stood on the side line and just watched, it was the first time I’d not shouted words of encouragement or bark orders, and I was glad I made myself do it because after the first quarter it was 0-0 and both sides were playing amazing football, and it was a joy to watch. Up until the last three minutes it was 3-3, Alfred then gave Darren a task and he just went to town on Ruislips goal. From seeing the boys for the first time in June to today, the difference in confidence and ability is astounding, from Jayden trying to cross the ball in with a rabona (and succeeding on his third try) to Aitor and Frank, not only tackling and regaining the ball but taking it forward around players and getting a shot off. After two defeats on the trott it was great to see the boys with big smiles on their faces after the game today. A big well done to Darren who was player of the week, not only for his performance today but for his attitude and behaviour in training as well.
