Teversal v AFC Vernon Colts
Teversal lose out to Vernon Colts
On the run up to Saturday, the weather had been hit and miss but a pitch inspection Friday evening proved that although the pitch was wet and lacking grass, it was playable. Little did we know that the temperature over night would take a turn for the worse.
Our coaches turned up at 9am to set up but discovered the pitch was unsafe due to the bare areas being completely frozen. With help from the parents, we set up further down the field where the ground was a little softer. The away coach came to check the pitch and agreed to play on the hill.
It was cold, wet and windy this weekend and by far the worst weather we have yet had to play in. Teversal went down by 3 goals in the first 10 minutes before Alfie and Maddie clawed it back to 3-2 after 20 minutes. Alfie put another in the back of the net during the last 10.
Final score: 7-3 after being cut short to 30 minutes due to conditions. Players from both teams were really feeling the cold and it was only fair to call it a day and get them all warmed up.
This week, saw Teversals newest squad member, Jakub, make his debut. And what a game he had! Despite the cold and the sleet, he came off the pitch wearing the biggest of smiles! Well done Jakub, and welcome to the Tevie Family!
