We arrived with 2 subs on a freezing cold wet windy pitch in Hamworth.

Team warmed up thoroughly and we stuck to our mission …. keep ball on ground and pass pass and pass.

6 minutes into first half ball was fed through to Cormac… who twisted righr and then and then again and finished with a curler into top left of net.

10 mins ball was again played through and Steven lept like a olympic jumper onto ball and slotted ball low into goal.

By this time i could not feel my hands…. was it trembling from match play plus totally frozen.

We kep attacking pass after pass came and their keeper certainly had warm hands as he saved shot after shot.

Half time my oppo manager and I bantered as I offered to buy his keeper for hot dogs and hot drinks.

Made some further changes and then 2 further goals came Steven road runner Gumble great shot bang into net.

Cormac Little Messi went on a run and his low gravity and twinkle toe feet executed another fine finish.

This team has lost 1 game in 8 and we are really developing….we now know best positions for boys and this brings depth and strength.

Great team effort…. just shows play ball on ground and pass you can win.

Thanks parents…. great support.

Co Manager.
