Sadly the lads winning run came to an end at Wyberton last Sunday on a pitch not really suited to our passing game. Wyberton were the stronger side and taught us some important lessons learnt about holding positions and marking closely at all times. Often more is learnt in defeat than a victory! The spirit shown by the lads in the second half however was commendable and we started to take the game to them much more. We are lucky that the lads have an excellent team spirit and never get their heads down and were unlucky not to get on the scoresheet.
We have TWO more tough games this weekend and the focus will continue to be on keeping our positions and making sure the opposition are marked at all times.
Saturday 14th Feb (Valentines day!) – Home Grimsby 10.45am Kick-Off
These are new to our league and have had some variable results so expect it could be a very close game. We will use the same formation as we did against Wyberton as it should give the lads the best chance of scoring a few goals and have enough defensive cover to keep things tight at the back. As always please there AT LEAST 30 minutes before kick-off. The forecast is not too bad but the pitch may still be a little boggy after all the rain/snow we have had over the last few weeks. Our referee will be Marcus Hill. Please see team sheet attached.
Sunday 15th Feb – Away Boston 10.45am Kick-Off
This has always been a very close game and we should expect the same again. If the lads agree we will probably use a similar team and formation as Saturdays game but this will of course depend on how well it works for them!
Speaking to the manager tonight they play on a different (and better!) pitch from last year. The new address is Haven High Technology College, Tollfield Road, Boston, PE21 9PN . As always please be there at least 30 minutes before kick-off.
