Match Day 2 GLOUCESTER FA 50+ LEAGUE
Report from today's games.
Game 1 vs Abbeymead Nothing to split these two sides yet again. 1/1 draw with Roger netting
Game 2 vs Caldicot A 1/1 draw. Hard Game. Took the lead through a great strike from our captain Jim, only to have all his hard work undone when his foot entered the box and gave away a penalty. Edd guessed the right way but to powerful to stop it.
Game 3 vs Chepstow 2/0 win . Saved the best till last with strikes from our striker Roger and capt Jim. Comfortable for large periods of this game and restricted opposition to shooting high and wide from distance.
What the manager had to say:
If before the games you'd have said 2 draws and a win I'd have taken that all day. The heat today was unbelievable but the lads stuck to the task admirably. Special mention to Edd who was outstanding but also Matt Preece and Mark Fisher on their league debuts. But all the lads put a shift in.
Still work to do, need to curb the silly mistakes. Again we just kept building momentum, getting better as the session went on. Its still new and we are starting to find our feet. It's an exciting place to be right now
