Please bear with us whilst we update our pages for the 2019-20 Season.
Update 15 Sep
A home game today against Longlevens who beat Swindon Village 11-1 last week . Not ideal for a squad in the middle of an injury crisis with no less than 7 out of our squad of 16 missing through injury before KO. Daryl the U16s manager kindly allowed us to use 2 of his players (Ollie and Daniel) so at least we had 11 for KO , thanks Chaps .
Onto the game , not a great start as we fell behind early on but we showed lots of energy and with Ethan further injuing his back ( well done for playing on) we were down to 10 men for a while but managed to get to half time 2-0 down.
In the 2nd half we tired a little but never gave in and could have scored a couple ourselves. so 5-0 im the end .
That said some really good performances today , Hubert tidy and agressive in midfield , Olly T composed at the back(m even with a yellow card) , Ricky busy up front . Freds tearing down the wing, steady debut from Doris and I suppose some good saves from Oscar,
Once we get all our players fit and all our new signings eligible we will be in good shape,
Training as normal on Tuesday , I wont be there myself as working away.
Update 8 Sept
First game of the season today against Slimbridge ( but a different Slimbridge to the ones we played before)
With only 12 players available it was always going to be tough ,and we fell behind early on . our plan not helped by Owen going off injured with a twisted ankle.
We dug in and some good defensive play kept us in the game until 35 mins when they scored 2 quick goals to be up 3-0 ant half time .
We were struggling with Injuries so injured Luke went in goal and Harry, Luca and Oscar soldiered through. We conceded 4 second half goals against a decent team to lose 7-0 .
There were some results much worse than our today , take a look at the Full time website !
We will be fine when we get all our squad available..
See you on Tuesday
