6s vs Carshalton – 24.09.16
This report is not going to be pretty so will keep and short and not so sweet!
This was our first league game of the season and with team slowly starting gel, hopes were high of getting our league campaign off to flier! How wrong we were!!
Things didn’t get off to the best of starts with players turning up late and one player, no names mentioned (JOHN!) not showing at all. This does not help when trying to get a warm up and starting 11 together and it really does put the team on the back foot straight away as concentration levels (by the manager!) was not at its best. To be fair, all involved have sent apologies, so let’s hope this is a one off.
Anyway to the game, we thought we would be in for a battle against a Carshalton team who ruffled a few Merton feathers in the past, however this was a new Carshalton team and from the off we could tell that this team was a team of good footballers and not hooligans. They were spraying passes from all over the place and most of the time found their target.
Anyway long and short of it was that we ended up losing 7-0. The only positive was that team never let their heads go down and did try to the end.
Anyway lets hope we can start afresh next week and put in a performance I know we are capable of.
Special mention to Josh, who gained a few votes and had a good game, but this week there was a clear winner in Dan P, who worked his sock off for 90 minutess and was unlucky not to grab a goal.
TEAM: Swanny, Ram, Martin, Kevin, Mark, Josh, Malcolm, Adam, Pete, Scott, Dan P
SUBS: Paul, Miguel
MAN OF THE MATCH: Dan Plaistow
DICK OF THE WEEK: Unanimous decision… John!
