Mapperley All Stars Stripes v Teversal
An outstanding performance from our reds!
Another warm welcome from the hosts Mapperley All Stars on our return visit to Lambley Lane Rec, this time facing their second team, 'All Stars Stripes'
Our team started strong and focussed with everyone putting in 100% effort. There was some fantastic football played within the first 10 minutes and it looked like we were the stronger side. All of the players' passing was spot on and Zach and Samuel showed an outstanding work rate. The goalkeeping role was split between Charlie, Cole, Samuel and Connor this week and all did super! Goals were seen from Alfie, Connor and Maddie, with several shots being blocked by Mapperleys defence during numerous corners! Unfortunately as the game progressed, the result didn't want to go our way with Mapperley shooting any time they got close to goal and it hitting the back of the net.
Following on from Saturdays game, this weeks training is likely to focus on closing the ball down early. The whole team will no doubt take it all in their stride and come out fighting again at the weekend!
We do love a trip to the All Stars, their hospitality is second to none. The team enjoyed pizza and chips that were put on for them after the match at the local pub. The warmth of the pub was very much welcomed after a cold couple of ours out on the field. Hopefully we can return the gesture with a home fixture in the future.
Next game: 10.02.2018 Teversal v AFC Vernon Colts 10am KO, Carnarvon Street.
