Saturday saw great conditions for playing good football and both teams did not disappoint in a pulsating game. In training the players have been working on getting goal side and defenders supporting the attackers when we have got the ball and attackers helping defenders to win the ball back when we have not got the ball and as a team Holme did it brilliantly and also a criticism of our players in previous games is not shooting enough and on Saturday Holme ''rained'' shots at North Duffields goalkeeper. Theo got us off to a great start in keeping a clean sheet in the first quarter and throughout the game Luke, Thomas, Henry and Nathan hardly allowed a shot on goal and supported our attackers when we were in North Duffields half especially Nathan who got a goal from a corner. As to our attackers all of them i.e. Jake, Harrison, Clayton, Jamie and Tyler had shots on goal and Clayton got a few goals and Jamie yet again got a long range effort goal and all helping out in defence when required to do so. As you might know Saturday was a special day for our team for obvious reasons BUT the return leg is this coming Saturday against the same opposition and at home so another big performance is needed by our team so as to win the cup. The man of the match went to Nathan for his goal, position play and making some crucial tackles well done to him and all the team.
