Pitch : Forge Lane
Match Report

This mornings game was against a familiar team, Great Barr Harriers.  Missing Stuart who was in sunny Manchester to support the Wolves and Arun. 

Starting we had Dan, Philip, Jakey, Lewis, Paddy, Noah, Mak, Will, Harrison, Ethan and Jayan.  Boys were sent out with instructions to quickly close down the opposition when they have possession and as we have been doing in training, use the width to switch play finding the players who have space.   In the first half we did well to follow this, however still saw massive gaps between the defence and midfield players which we need to continue working on.  Luke and Max came on to replace Jakey and Ethan with Will dropping into defence.  A couple of good runs and link up play with a free kick just outside the box.  At half time we were 1-0 down.

2nd half we started well but Great Barr looked like the more hungry/determined team to win.  This half saw 3 more goals going past us.  Strong performance by Will both whist in midfield and defence getting to the ball first to clear – this week MOTM.

Boys need to remember we are in division 2 and not to drop our heads when losing.  If we play like we did in the 1st half, with a little more confidence and commitment, maybe we can get back on that winning streak.  Some early nights on a Saturday could also help tiredness for the early Sunday starts.  We will continue following the training scheduled which has been shared with you all, however more work is definately needed – COYL.
