Comment from the Coach


A great, character-building but stressful win today. Our first extra time win (and game) and the first time we have progressed past the first round of the cup (as far as I can recall...) - so a game you can all feel very proud of. The final score-line of 5-4 reflected the nature of the game - fast, open and free-ranging. To persevere in such an ebbing game was great - very proud of the display team.

We started off with the key advantage of having 3 subs - a bit of a luxury compared to our past few games - and we needed them today with the pace and length of the game. We used the subs bench a lot today with players coming on/off for sharp spells - I know you all want to play the whole game - but we need to use all players to keep those legs fresh. We will try to play 3 subs wherever possible to provide this optionality.

Some good individual performances today - a great debut from the new lads - Gareth in defence played with strong physical presence and good vision whilst Greg played a fast and furious game playing the close ground balls very well. Mo and Andy chipped in with good individual goals and Tom played a versatile game in both mid field and defence. Man-of-the-match today was James - 3 skilful goals starting with a fantastically placed free-kick. Towards the end of the game, he then dropped back to defence to help bolster the tired legs.

A great game overall guys - you can all smile now!
