Cyclones take a break from league action and enter cup competition against bromham youth lions from league 2 so another good test for the boys.
Today we had a squad of 11 as john sadly wasn’t very well.
As we all arrived all the boys seemed in good spirits and they all warmed up well as the whistle blew for the first half we felt that all the boys were up for this game today.
And up for it they were first half both teams battled hard but we certainly battled to win every ball winning most we looked confident and assured in every position.
We certainly had chances to get the first goal but we went in to half time 0-0.
As a parent said to me during the first half if opta was watching this game we were looking on top in the stats.
Team talk was the easiest one so far for us coaches,just keep doing what your doing everything your doing was great we looked like the cyclones we know is there but doesn’t always appear.
As the 2nd Half Started the weather had turned the clouds turned darker and the wind picked up But both teams battled much the same as the first half,but as the game got closer to the end parents from both teams began to think about a penalty shoot out and it wouldn’t have been a surprise if it had.
The bad thing was I felt if either team scored now that goal would win it and sadly I was correct because it was bromham who scored it.
The goal was in my opinion was a cross helped by the wind as it floated in to the far top corner (If I was the player I’d say I meant it) but even a keeper of 6ft 5 wouldn’t have reached that.
The boys looked devastated but we said to them keep going we knew we didn’t have long so went for it we stuck 3 up front and went for it and it almost came malik had a great effort cleared off the line by a great headed clearance by a bromham defender,if that was in the premiership match if the day would show it several times.
But sadly the final whistle went and we had lost 1-0 out crashed out of the cup.
Today the boys were great special mention today goes to Korban who today was fantastic coming out of his box being more commanding in his area talking and organising his defence another step forward Korban well done.
The four boys up top Aaron,Bailey,Malik and Sam gave there defence trouble in all different ways having the four options is great for us as coaches.
Midfield and defence looked solid as usual Alex,Alfie,Callum,Callan and Morgan solid and consistent as usual and not forgetting Charlie who today I felt was solid and tenacious he broke up there play up so well which is his job but sometime his role in helping out the Cyclones defence and attacking play goes unnoticed in the ‘Claude makelele’ role.
Sadly we just fell short but the boys should take pride in the performance today.
We thank bromham for the game and wish them well in the cup and hopefully we get to play you again after Christmas.
