Northampton Mens Own RFC

A mixed up morning

by Stephen Melville

A chilly, bright a sunny morning saw the Casuals visit Mens Own today.

Unfortunately the Casuals didn’t have their full compliment of players however that wasn’t going to stop us making the most of a glorious morning. We rotated our players offering 3 per half to the Casuals to make up a full squad. It worked out well for all concerned as our rotated players enjoyed the experience – some of them a little too much scoring past Mens Own !

The first match was close with Mens Own winning by a narrow margin. The second even closer with a fair draw. More important than the score, all the players and coaches enjoyed our mixed up morning.

Man of the match this week goes to Mathew, although he didn’t get on the score sheet today Mathews support play was fantastic. In the right place at the right time he didn’t stop running whether in defence or attack. From the centre of the pitch I could see him really switch on, thinking about his position and keeping the width. Well done Mathew
