Comment from the Coach


A tough game on Sunday with the highest temperatures of the season coinciding with only having 9 players available.

We started very well with James unlucky not to get us on the board inside the first 20 seconds... We continued to dominate the first 25 minutes with some excellent possession play and some great attacking moves. We held an excellent defensive line and managed to catch Netherne out offside very regularly. But tellingly, we did not convert the opportunities we had - largely due to a physical lack of numbers.

However, the combination of heat and lack of player numbers combined to gradually wilt our degree of possession and ability to defend and we started to leak goals ending up losing 8-0. Whilst we could not have expected to win given we were so out-numbered, we did deserve to get on the scoreboard several times. We had more than 50% of possession, but where we lost it was short passages of play when our lack of numbers resulted in their players finding loose space. Andy and Rob (man-of-the-match) were superb in defence with a never-say-die attitude whilst James played a lone-hand up-front covering many miles at top pace despite the heat.
