Score East Mbro 0-1 Marske
Well parents what can I say about today's "1st ever game!!! "
Let's start by saying myself and Harry couldn't have asked for anymore from our boys who applied themselves from KO to match end. Some superb passing and movement! Keepers, absolutely solid with very few shots on target to save with great distribution!! Due to our phenomenal defensive back line, who were all superb today, rock solid!! Attacking line up, always dangerous moving forward! Centre bossed, winning the majority of the ball. All the above in 3 weeks of been together against a decent Div 6 experienced side!!! Their manager Lee, coach and parents couldn't have been more complimentary about how we set up and played football today! Only one word for ALL the boys today, which is Robs favourite, "AWESOME"
A massive mention for today's MOM..GK Finn Stubley, who very kindly offered his services to East Mbro, as their keeper was on holiday! Let me tell you, if it wasn't for Finn today it would have been 6-0 or more! Absolute quality Finn well done!
Big learnings for us today around positional play, which we still need to work on, apart from that "Top Team Performance". Just like to thank Dave Marshall for stepping up today as our ref whilst in a delicate frame of mind 👍!! And you parents who were our 12th man today on the sidelines! Thanks for all your kind support. Keep the faith! UTMU ⚽️⚽️⚽️😀
