Comment from the Coach


A 2-0 nil today was disappointing but in context of one of the worst referring performances I have seen, not a game to get disheartened about.

Warren Mead were not able to field an accredited referee today, so their manager filled in. It started off ok but soon de-generated into a game lacking central control, Andrew's off-side flag being totally ignored for their first goal when they had 2 off-side and many foul tackles missed.

But having said that, we need to score goals to win games and that we did not do today.

We played one of our better end-to-end games today, where we fell down was not converting the many chances we had into goals - we simply must put away the balls when we have possession inside the box. The mid-field did a good job of supporting the clearances from defence - more body effort and positional play was very evident - this bodes well.

We had excellent performances today from Gareth in defence despite a bit of verbal abuse from his opposite number, a good return from Benedict and some good short, sharp bursts from Mo. Man-of-the-match today was Rob who was full of running (no rugby on Saturday must have helped...), positioned himself well and cleared many dangerous balls.
