Today was our first game of the new season where we played newly formed MK Gallacticos in Fishermead. We had 7 players for this game and I have to say that Matt and I were extremely proud of the way everybody played. We cant ask more than to give 100% effort and that is what we received today.
We explained to the team at the start that we would rotate the captain positon weekly throughout the season and the first appointment was Mason who gave good instructions to the team throughout the game (thank you)..
We saw debuts from Louie and Cody. Louie marked his debut with a goal (well done) and Cody did very well in goal for us (thank you). Our first "man of the match" award for the new season went to Elliot who absolutely played his heart out. Very, very well done. Fabulous performance.
Our other goal today came from Devon following a penalty taken by Louie. Devon followed up after the goalkeeper spilled the ball with a well taken goal (well done). Louie's goal was also well taken and managed to "loop" the ball over the goalkeepers outstretched arms.
Will (despite not feeling too well during the night and throughout the game) played very well. Thank you for playing and we hope you feel better very soon.
Finally we saw Alfie following absence with holidays back with us. Alfie had his normal reliable solid game in midfield. Good to see everybody back from the holiday period.
It was a very entertaining game today and we hope everybody enjoyed themselves as this is our main aim for the lads. Next week we hope to recruit 2 new players (Ashley and Harry), we should also have John back from holiday. So, we will be in a better position to give players a break, especially if they pick up a knock during the game as we saw today. We didnt have the same luxury as our opponents from this point of view.
Many thanks to MK Gallacticos for hosting us today. We look forward to seeing them again later in the season. Thanks too to our parents for their fantastic support today. It is always appreciated.
Final word: Fabulous performance. Look forward to seeing you all at training next Thursday ahead of our first home game against Newport Pagnell Youth. Have a good week.
