Comment from the Coach
Today's Cup game versus Bookham B was against a side in the top half of the Division above us - so on paper a mis-match.  But we held our own - the first half was very evenly matched with chances for both sides.  The second half saw a few breaks go their way before they ran out 3-0 winners.  We never like to lose but I was not overly concerned about today - whilst we did not play well enough to win, we deserved to be on the board at least...
Again, the growing confidence is evident and if we keep working on the basics, we will do well this season.
Some solid performances today - Ollie was reliable in goal, Rob was back to his solid first-touch play again, James played well in defence covering a lot of ground, Tom started back on his path to match fitness and Callum was grinding out a solid display in the mid-field.  Man-of-the-match today was Andy, a fine example of defensive heading, effective positioning and strong clearances.
Very pleased with the way the defensive line is starting to gel.  We need to work through a few different ideas up front and mid-field to ensure we are giving the players their best chance of excelling - something for us all to discuss and work on.  We have the players and the talent - just need to get it all in the right place!
