MATCH REPORT

 

THIS WEEKEND WE WERE KINDLY INVITED TO A FRIENDLY AGAINST NORTH BERWICK AT THEIR HOME GROUND FOR A FRIENDLY 7-A-SIDE FIXTURE. OUT OF 9 PLAYERS CONFIRMED WE MANAGED TO MUSTER 8 AND AFTER SOME TINKERING WE GOT UNDERWAY. (GREGOR WE MISSED YOU! J )

 

WE FOLLOWED THE USUAL FORMAT OF THREE 15 MINUTE FIXTURES THANKS TO A STRONG SHOWING IN DEFENCE WE KEPT A CLEAN SHEET THANKS TO JOSH AND HARRY S. IN DEFENCE AND HARRY O’.  IN GOALS BUT FAILED TO CAPITALISE GOALS WISE AND WERE HELD TO A STALEMATE IN THE FIRST GAME AS IT CONCLUDED 0 – 0 AT THE END OF 15 MINUTES.

 

THE SECOND GAME SAW A CHANGE IN POSITION FOR SOME OF OUR SQUAD IN A TIE WHICH WE REALLY SHOULD HAVE WON BUT ALAS AFTER A TOUCH OF BAD LUCK THE RESULT ENDED IN A 2 – 2 DRAW DESPITE A GREAT PERFORMANCE IN GOALS FROM CAMERON F. AND THANKS TO TWO WELL TAKEN GOALS FROM JOSH AFTER A COUPLE OF GREAT PASSES FROM OLLIE S. FINALLY FOUND THERE WAY THROUGH. ALSO A BIG THANKS TO CAMMY FROM DUNBAR WHO AFTER TURNING UP TO THE WRONG GROUND (IM SURE IT MUST HAVE BEEN DAD’S FAULT J ) ROLLED UP HIS SLEEVES AND ENJOYED A KICK ABOUT WITH GULLANE A.F.C. ALLOWING US TO GET BACK TO HAVING 2 SUBSTITUTES.

 

AND FINALLY,  AFTER EXPLAINING A DIFFERENT SHAPE AND SYSTEM AND PUTTING IT IN PLACE FOR THE FINAL GAME WE MANAGED TO RECORD A 3 – 2 VICTORY THANKS TO A HAT-TRICK FROM CAMERON F. ASSISTED BY A STRONG DEFENSIVE PERFORMANCE FROM CHRISTIAN AND CHARLIE AND A GREAT SUPPORTING ROLE FROM JOSH PLAYING “IN THE HOLE” AND SWITCHING POSITIONS WITH OLLIE S. ON THE RIGHT WING SEEMLESSLEY WHEN REQUIRED AND THE USUAL TIRELESS PERFORMANCE FROM BENJI ON THE LEFT, THE TEAM SEEMINGLY RESLISHING THE CHANGE IN SYSTEM. (SOMETHING I FELT WORTH TRYING OUT WITH WHAT IS A TALENTED AND FIT GROUP OF PLAYERS)

 

A MAHOOSIVE THANKS TO ALL THE BOYS WHO GAVE A GREAT SHOWING OF ENERGY AND DESIRE AS EVER WITH PERFORMANCES ALMOST TOO NUMEROUS TO MENTION ESPECIALLY WITH MUCH LOWER NUMBERS THAN OUR HOSTS PLAUDITS TO THE ENTIRE SQUAD CAMERON F., BENJI B., HARRY O’., HARRY S.,CHARLIE G., OLLIE S., JOSH MC., CHRISTIAN L., AND OF COURSE OUR GUEST FROM DUNBAR CAMMY. AND OF COURSE A GREAT THANKS TO ANGUS F. AND ALL THE MUMS AND DADS WHO MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO PUT OUR TEAM TOGETHER WEEK IN WEEK OUT.

 

SO FAR A GREAT START TO THE 2016 CALENDAR AS WE NOW LOOK FORWARD TO ANOTHER 5-A-SIDE FUTSAL TOURNAMENT THIS SATURDAY 30TH JANUARY AND I LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL THERE AND ENJOYING THE BEAUTIFUL GAME WITH A SMILE AS IT SHOULD BE ENJOYED.

 

P.S. KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR MIDWEEK TRAINING UPDATES AND THE UPCOMING AGM 24TH FEBRUARY.
