We're in the Final.
Half Time: 1-0
The second half was very much more of the same. Patrick continued to work hard up front but he had left his ‘shooting boots’ at home for this game and he was unlucky with a number of chances going astray which on any other day he would have converted. The life of a striker! However, Charlie Olson had a great ‘purple patch’ during which almost everything he struck went into the net. He scored both our goals to make it 3-0 with two great strikes and was unlucky when hitting the post and going very close on a number of occasions. Once again we were strong as a team with Sean Clarke marshalling the midfield ably supported by the ever improving Ben. Joe came on in the second half for Ben and worked hard playing left midfield as did James Roberts who replaced Charlie Olson who took a knock and needed to be replaced having made a great contribution.
A win next week will be a great reward for a set of boys who have worked tirelessly to become a very good football team in a short period of time. I’m sure this will be the start of great things to come for them. The game against the Eldonians seems a lifetime ago…and the team is virtually unrecognisable from that game. Well done boys and let’s make sure we win the Shield!
Scorers: Charlie (2) and Ben
