A new chapter in the Hurricanes’ footballing journey started with this match. Always keenly contested, this friendly with the Tornadoes also marked both team’s first venture into the 9-a-side game….. and along with that the offside rule. If truth be told, offside did not feature that much in proceedings (apart from one disallowed goal for the Tornadoes…. well spotted lino). The important thing was to start the process of playing effectively as a larger unit. This was largely achieved, with the boys growing into the new formation and looking particularly strong defensively and on the break. In particular, Josh was superb in his central role ahead of the defence, whilst Cathal continues to be deadly in front of goal. Also a tremendous debut form Harrison who was extremely effective and hard working. But this was very much a team effort, which saw some very effective passing, movement and covering. Also well done to the Tornadoes who also played very well and provided a stern test.
