Well, we asked the lads to get back to basics and show us they can do some of the less enjoyable parts of the game last weekend and you must agree they didn’t disappoint! The level of discipline in marking, tracking back when they lost the ball and overall grit and determination showed they can more than compete with the better sides in the league. Sunday against Boston in particular was one of the best team efforts we have seen all season (although a special mention must go to Alfie who was outstanding again in goal!)
Sunday 22nd Feb Ruskington Home – 10.45am kick-off
This weekend sees a different proposition but in some ways just as challenging. Ruskington were 1-0 up against Wyberton 2 weeks ago and were unlucky to lose 2-1 in the last minute so they are a very different side we beat 9-1 in the opening game of the season. We are moving the lads positions around again a bit this weekend to give those playing in defence the last 3 games a chance to move up the field a bit. The good thing is the more the season progresses the easier it gets to place the lads in any position on the field as they are developing good all round ability.
As always please be there before 10.15 as the 30 minute warm up routine the lads are now getting used to is really preparing them well for kick-off. Joseph is captain for the game and our league referee is Jess Hawker.
Sat 13th June 6-a-side Competiton
Please note that the U11 competition will be on the Saturday and not on the Sunday of this weekend. We have invited St Helens, Horncastle, Hykenham and Saxilby to join ourselves and the Arrows. Should be a fun day.
