Semi-final today was against a competent Bromham side who gained promotion to division 5 . Two poor leagues performances was not ideal build up , but I could sense, the boys were prepared for this game. They started well pressing high, forcing their game on Bromham. Chances started to come , jari having a couple of half chances , Denzel, Josh and Yannis. No goal come to reward our play , and even though playing well , we knew they could undo us. We eventually scored about ten minutes before half-time , diagonal ball from Jari to tyler, who controled and pulled back to Denzel. He powerfully volleyed home , 1-0 Tigers . Bromham to be fair had a couple of noteable chances after we scored the first a one on one , which Harris saved brilliantly to his left one handed and rebound was cleared by josh , the second from a corner was cleared off the line by Jari. But in all fairness from keeper , through the defence and the rest of team , our team shape/ discipline was good today . Half-time 1-0 Told boys 1-0 good but Bromham still in the game and we needed press home the chances we were creating . Started second half well and chances continued to come , Josh coming close with a header , Jeremy ,Samuel, Denzel also having chances . We got rewarded again when after a mazy run into the area by jari , a defender clipped his heel- penalty awarded. Up stepped Josh , great penalty into the corner , keeper not a chance . 2-0 Tigers Chances continued to come but the third come eventually through a corner which dropped through a couple of players to Denzel , who again cooly fired home. Final whistle blew 3-0 Tigers .
