In this game we started with Luke S at left back to replace Dan who was delayed in traffic with Joe H moving into central defensive midfield . The latter is really starting to show his worth and has evidenced what a good footballer he is keeping the game neat and tidy whilst accclimatising himself to the faster pace , higher intensity game of top quality U16 football .
Once again thankfully The Reds started the game really well with 3 identical strikes from Marcus which the keeper saved at the near post , Lewis going close and Oisin doing what was asked of central midfield in supporting attack when Marcus moves from the centre . Oisin is a perfect example of a footballer who takes on board what is asked of him for the sake of the team .A real gem and man of the match again with an imperious performance .
After this when really we should have again been at least two up The Reds gave Astley the easiest of chances with them taking advantage of space down the left and the centre forward who is a real handful should have put them in the lead but for a last gasp tackle from Rob .This was also partly caused by our lack of talking and centrally defensively at times playing too deep and not pushing out to leave the centre forward offside .The Reds deservedly took the lead when Marcus headed in a corner from Oisin but as we knew from last week 1-0 is never enough .
The half time team talk was made by Dan who totally agrees with this having seen it first hand himself gaining a greater understanding of what myself and Darren are trying to say .
The second half was a game of two penalties which both sides miss but it has to be said what a great save Marks was low to his left .
We picked up two more yellow cards , one for a last ditch foul off Joel and the second probably for persistent fouls from Rob and these are cards that as a coach you really do not mind apart from the cost .
Great to get our first League win when our football overall has been so much better than score lines suggest to add to or two cup wins to date .
Next week an early KO 10am V Manchester Macaabi when hopefully we can get our shooting boots on again in the Challenge Cup .
