Hippos beaten by St Martins

Not a good day at the office

Very disappointing day at the office.

I kept the shape that served us well against Axminster and looked to take the same spirit into the match with reigning champions st. Martins.

St. Martins played with a front three that stretched our back 3 - and pulled the wing backs all over the place.

We were quickly two goals down and fearing the worst as St Martins were all over us.

A change was made that whilst it was uncomfortable, to me it had to be made for the good of the team. It was decision based on the formation of the team rather than the actual quality of the play, and as a former player it must be a hard one to take, but obviously not a personal decision.

The change in shape seemed to steady the ship a little and we got a goal back through Blake Fremantle after good work from Joe Dixon.

It took us into the halftime break 2-1 down but we felt we were the side in the ascendancy and we needed to build upon a good finish to the first half

St. Martins started brightly in the second half, and as already mentioned the front three worked particularly well and had brilliant quality.

They scored 2 goals in quick succession that unfortunately visibly knocked the stuffing out of us. We felt very hard done by and unfortunately it's a similar tale where the effort of the lads didn't reflect the score. A fifth goal came, and it was well and truly game over. However to their credit the hippos kept going and have a goal chalked off for offside.

Moaning and groaning about things really isn't helping me or the team and it certainly isnt getting me anywhere with regards to, referee decisions, opposing linesman or the state of the pitch - so I apologise that I have gone down that route in previous reports and I just have to accept that's the way it is.

Yesterday wasn't down to any of the above - that's simply down to me and the decisions I made. We will dust ourselves off and be ready for a home match next week, but there will be changes made you need to get points back on the board, and we really need it was down to chase on and encourage the lads.
