Great Finish to the season...

Great Finish to the season...

Great Finish...

HT - 0-3
FT - 1-6

MoM - Joe T - Defensively strong and quick, against their quick #10 (and backed up with the other defenders, also doing well)
MoM - Mitch W - his best game of the season, very vocal, made strong challenges and put the ball in the areas we wanted (behind the opposition full backs)
MoM - Luke - Another great performance and 2 outstanding goals (and could've had a few more)... bossed the midfield and went past the opposition as if they weren't there. Also put the balls in dangerous areas..

It had been several weeks since our last match and we were wondering if we would be rusty, but from the start there was to be no fear of that!!
Boco had the breeze in the first half and tried to utilise this with balls over the top prompting their speedy striker to get on the end of it, but they had not bargained for coming up against Joe and Croy, who themselves are quick and strong and thwarted many attacks. When the ball went wide Ben and Connor were also up to the task of keeping Boco at bay...
Saints started the stronger playing some neat football and were first to the ball many times. Zerom on the left wing had a few early chances, as his pace enabled him to glide past Boco's right back but the final touch just made the chance more difficult and the keeper saved or the ball as cleared...Darren and John upfront were causing the defence all sorts of problems, as they hurriedly cleared the ball anywhere, with back up from Liam on the RW. After 10 mins Ben (RB) tackled the ball back and some interchange play through Mitch W and Luke in midfield, played it back out to Liam, who played in John to cross into the box.. the ball was only half cleared and Luke was able to chest and volley into the top corner from the edge of the area... a well worked team goal and a fantastic finish... This knocked Boco back a bit and Saints were playing some good football and creating several chances... After a few corners, again Boco failed to clear, and Joe calmly side stepped 1 defender and drove a low left foot shot into the bottom right of the goal.. Boco were still using the long ball and did force a few corners, however the crosses were too good and deep and eluded everyone allowing Saints to clear their lines. Saints were at it again and another good team move saw Luke collect the ball and skip past a few Boco players and when looking up to see where the support was, faked a pass and drove into the box and coolly finished in the corner..
Saints were camped in their half for the final 10 mins or so of the half and Will was on hand to collect a few through balls at the feet of the Boco striker and also saved a 1 on 1 with the ball ricocheting off his face for a corner...

HT - 0-3

Saints had the breeze in the second half and saw the introduction of Mitch C (RB), Owen (CB), Harry (LW) and Balint (Str). After the brief interlude Saints were back on the attack and it didn't take long for Zerom to get his deserved goal, as he and Darren combined well with Zeroms pace again allowing him to breeze past the defence and slot into the corner. It was one way traffic for a bit which saw Harry dangerously crossing from the left causing all sorts of panic in the Boco area with Balint and Zerom going close and Luke, with another volley, hitting the bar... It wasn't long before Zerom got his second, although I'm not sure where the Boco keeper was as a central shot went straight into the middle of the goal, untouched...
At the other end Mitch C was solid at right back thwarting several attacks, and plying the right ball into the Right channel, setting saints off on another attack. Owen was solid at the back and Balint had a few chances but was caught offside..
Boco forced a few corners, but Will was able to punch clear amongst the crowd..
Saints got another goal and again from a corner.. both teams went for the ball and it fell around the penalty spot, where Owen was first to react and hit a ferocious left foot half volley into the net before anyone had chance to react.
Boco did get their goal, as they broke through at pace as Saints pushed forward for more goals, with Will unable to get the rebound after initially saving the 1 on 1...
Luke and Zerom were unlucky not to get hat-ticks as their goal bound shots were blocked, with one cleared off the line...

A great season finishing performance, which could have been a wider margin, with Saints a little disappointed to concede, but that is being very critical... to finish with 9 wins from 10 since xmas, and a 3rd place finish, it has set us up nicely for next season.

Well done to the whole squad who have worked hard for this run and hopefully enjoyed their journey.. A night out next Wed (25th) for our presentation evening and then a rest. Looking forward to getting back into it over the summer for a winning start in Sep.

(Note - I've not had the tickets come through for our pre-season tour of Spain, so we will just have to make do with King George V PF !!)
