Comment from the Coach


A tough match today. No-one likes to lose a match 9-0 - but were were up against the best side in the competition and whilst clearly outclassed on the day, we had many chances to get on the board too - but just could not manage that last effort.

I was particularly pleased with the final 10 minutes, this is when our heads could have really dropped, but there was a surge of spirit, confidence and determination that had St Helier chasing us for a change and several near-efforts that on a better day, would have gone in. Very, very proud of that spirit.

We tried many things today and I was very pleased with how everyone responded. We turned defenders into strikers and visa versa - providing a bit of a change and the fact that you left the pitch with some smiles still shows that you enjoy the game - let's take that spirit into our next game against Warren Mead at home and we will start to get the wins that we deserve.

Francesco kept his remarkable no-penalties-scored record going today - stunning effort Fran! Ollie had the ball on a string in the last 10 minutes in defence. Jack E again put in a very solid defensive effort. Man-of-the-match today was a tough effort - had to call on the parents on the sidelines for their views - even that proved difficult as they were locked between James and Jack - both players gave 100% today playing in different positions and running hard all day. In the end, Jack got the vote by a nose providing extra resilience in mid-field coupled with some scything runs late in the game on goal.
