Due to no League fixture this weekend, we had a friendly arranged against the Lee Allison Football Academy. We had heard that this would be a tough game against a well organised footballing team. And so it proved.
We started with the right attitude and took the game to the opposition with some tough tackling and a precise passing game. If the game was on SKY SPORTS the stats would've reflected our dominance but the game remained goalless.
With one of their few visits to our half of the pitch, the opposition were given a free kick which they took full advantage of to take the lead.
Our boys fought back to draw level with a slick passing move that included Max, Jack and Conor and was finished neatly by Callum.
1-1 Half Time.
We started the 2nd half as we finished the 1st, with an excellent pressing game that pushed the opposition back. I think our strength and speed was the difference in the 2nd half and this proved the difference. Alonso continued his hot streak with another strike, and Conor completed the scoring with a well taken penalty.
