15th January vs Fletcher Moss Reserves

15th January vs Fletcher Moss Reserves

We had already played Fletcher Moss twice, away in the league and the cup, and knew to expect a strong and skilful opposition. 

Having discussed and worked on our defending in training it was good to see lots of effort in the first period where we worked hard as a team and defended well against Fletcher Moss.  Joe Mason started the game as he meant to go on, working exceptionally hard and was all over the pitch – leading the attack one minute and back helping out the defence the next.  Sam scored a really well taken goal which was just reward for the effort he put in over the last two games. 

Dan suffered an early injury and had to come off to be replaced by Joseph.  Theo made some good clearances in goal and applied some goalkeeping tips well.

Fletcher Moss continued to increase the pressure in this period with the wind behind them and made this tell by scoring several good goals.  We weren’t totally out of the game and managed to create our own attacks.  If we can be a bit more consistent in our defending and move up the pitch as a team we will have more success as too often our attackers were left to run long distances on a heavy pitch with little support to maintain the attack.

Charlie played in goal in the second period were he made a couple of outstanding saves and was always willing to challenge for the ball. 

The final period continued much the same as the second with Fletcher Moss in control but we did manage to attack on several occasions.  Joe used his striking instinct well to tuck away a loose ball and get our second goal of the game.

Adam continued the good work from last week, tracking opposition players well and waiting to get a tackle or clearance in.  Phoenix was quick to take a turn in goal and put in several good saves.

We picked up a few injuries during the game this week but hopefully nothing serious.  It was good to see the subs coming on each time and get straight into the game and do a good job.  From a coaches point of view it was good to see everyone working hard and some of the points that we had covered in training being applied in the following game.  We need to continue working hard as a team and focus on making tackles and getting a clearance when the chance comes.  Often the key to defending is getting in the way of the opposition and forcing them to make mistakes.
