What a great game on Sunday! We were expecting a difficult game against Wyberton so to be 6-1 up at half-time was amazing credit to the boys and some exceptional finishing from Joseph! Wyberton showed great spirit to come back in the second half though and we had to show some battling spirit to just nick it 6-5 by the final whistle. We all went back to Dambusters Inn afterwards to watch the game again on video and have some well earned hot dogs and chips courtesy of the Greg the landlord. All in all a great day!
Sunday 16th Nov – St Helens Home – 10.45am Kick-Off
Our next game is against a newly formed side and we will take the chance to play a few more lads in attacking positions. As you know it is our policy (and always will be ) to play all the lads in different positions whenever possible to ensure they develop into all round good footballers. Could you please be there for 10.15 latest as it is very important the lads have a proper warm-up before the match. For the safety of the boys any lads who are late it is best we start them as sub so they can warm-up on the line properly before coming on. We don’t yet have a referee for this game so any volunteers?? We are only aware of Connor being unavailable and Sam Reeve will be captain.
Sunday 23rd Nov – Ruskington Home – 10.45am Kick-Off
Although we beat this team 9-1 at the start of season they have had some close results as the season progresses so will be tougher opposition this time around. We believe that all the lads are available for this game and Adam will be captain.
Where possible we will continue to be using the video for matches and training sessions, not only as a bit of fun for the boys but hopefully to get across some good learning points. Anyone happy to video a half or two during the season then let us know (we do have to get permission of the opposing manager and parents first though). It will be good to try to capture some of the seasons highlights on DVD at the end of the season and should give us some great still shots for the presentation evening!
It was good to see the raffle being run again on Sunday, hopefully Caroline will be able to get close to the £230 from last season which, after giving £100 back to the club to help with subs, should leave us enough to treat the lads at the end of the season. Maybe a trip to Pleasure Island at Cleethorpes? – just a thought. It might also be good to have a bit of a Xmas party at the Dambusters on Thurs 18th Dec instead of training? We can have some snacks and maybe a football quiz with lads vs parents? Again just a thought!
Hope to see you all at training this Thursday.
