ALL ABOUT DEVELOPMENT
On a much warmer morning than recent Saturdays, our second match of the season against the newly formed MK Gallacticos saw a very reduced Hurricanes squad from the previous friendly match back in August. With 4 players missing, the game offered the opportunity to try new things out. Players largely adapted well to new positions, and a new formation was tried. All part of developing teams, MK Gallacticos certainly impressed in how well organised they have become and their style of play. A first half largely dominated by the Hurricanes delivered us few real opportunities. The second half was far more open, with both sides creating numerous chances. The heavy pitch and small squad ultimately took its toll on the boys, however there were many good lessons and experiences derived from the match, so we can take plenty of positives as well as concentrate on playing to our strengths for the next ‘competitive’ fixture.
