Comment from the Coach


A difficult (1-3) loss today - primarily as we came up against the best goal-keeper we've played against this season - we had far more shots on goal - but he played an excellent game, denying all but one.  Whilst we had most of the play, we did not convert - the visibility was very bad - but it was the same for both sides.

We were exposed defensively early on but recovered our strength when we started playing 4 in defense again.  Our late first half goal was well deserved and gave us hope for the second half.  In the second half, we peppered the goal but simply could not get the breakthrough we needed.  Thought we were on for a draw for a while today but their late second half goal sealed it.

Martin played another very industrious game, took a painful boot to the leg and was denied a potential penalty.  Jonathon created good space out wide - we just need to look for him more….  James H played well showing good pace and is increasingly using his strength to get past players.  Tom was very effective in mid-field, holding the ball up and threading some great passes off to create opportunities.  Jack made some great, game transforming runs - the one late in the game almost made us tired watching it - covered a decent stretch of pitch.  Man-of-the match today was Freddie - an excellent, balanced game up-front, finding space, playing other players into position and justly rewarded with a goal.
