EVERYONE’S A WINNER
all the age groups competed in a mini-tournament on the new Astroturf at the Redgrave Sports Centre in Marlow.
The under 12s played their Marlow counterparts in 4 very close and competitive games.
Rhys performed miracles in goal saving shot after shot with some daring heroics. James and Reece ran their socks off in midfield ans played their hearts out, whilst Tom and George were their usual busy selves. And Mason was always on hand to finish off the flowing passing moves, so reminiscent of the Dutch ‘total football’ of the ’70s.
Two wins and two draws was a great result and testament to the inspirational leadership of their svengali, Louis ‘Wenger’ Thomas.
The Adult ‘B’ team also played 4 games against Marlow Gateway ‘A’ and ‘B’.
The coaching of Deano is certainly paying dividends as a fine collective team performance resulted in 3 wins and a just a sole defeat.
Sam ‘The Cat’ Holloway purred magnificently in goal and David Hackett showed touches of class and is rapidly proving himself to be an indispensible member of the squad. Lillianne was a veritable rock in defence whilst Nathan ‘Doctor’ Hammond pulled the strings in midfield. David Gardner played a blinder up front with his feints and shimmies and subtle flicks confusing the opposition (and, most of the time, himself). Jamie Clark scored a goal in his cameo performance with the others courtesy of David G and Nathan and an own goal.
A display. full of promise with some fine individual performances.
