Comment from the Coach


What a way to close out the season.  A quality 5-1 win in very cold conditions was a great effort.  Thanks to the band of supporters today who braved the elements to support the lads.
We were playing on our preferred hard and fast pitch which suited our play.  We made many substitutions today and mixed some players around and it all seemed to work well.  The only goal we conceded was against the run of play so we did dominate play very well.  Still some areas to work on in terms of converting possession to goals but I'm not complaining given the scoreline!
Defensively we were very strong despite the absence of Jack and Andy's early injury.  The defence has been the backbone of our game this year as evidenced by our league leading goal difference - the fact this continued today despite having only half the normal defence being out was especially pleasing - quality efforts from James G and Benedict in rising to the challenge.
Goals today were shared between Martin with 3 (could have been the magical 4 if one of his easiest headers of the season had been on target...) and Raph with 2 (though the last one could have also been an easy one for Callum...).  The architect of 4 of the goals today was Matt who played a blinder and was a clear man-of-the-match today.  Matt used his pace to create space and threaded some delightful balls through to the forwards.  He used his physical presence to greater effect today and read the flow of play very well - great effort.  Just reward would have been a goal....next time....
