HEADS WE WIN, NO HEADS WE LOOSE !
On a very cold and wet Bedfordshire morning, the boys travelled to Harrold in search of a good performance to sign off the 2015/16 League season. Certainly we played some good passing football, had most of the possession and created more chances. So that should have given us the platform for a good result. Effort and hard work was also evident, however poor finishing and a reluctance to head the ball (either in defence or attack) handed this match to our opponents who were far more clinical with their finishing. We need to be far more assertive when challenging for headers. By leaving the ball to bounce, we hand the initiative to our opponents and make life far harder than it need be.
Fortunately these are things we can now work on as we return to midweek grass training. All in all, the team played well and there were plenty of plus points. Cameron’s finishing was top drawer, whilst there was good creativity and passing in spurts. The spirit was good, as the team battled to the end but could not make our dominance pay. Well done all.
