10 Nov Thirsk Men 3 vs Acomb 2
Thirsk started in their normal 2-3-2-3 formation but quickly found itself over-run in midfield where a strong Acomb team had an extra man. Thirsk therefore sacrificed an under-utilised forward for an extra man, usually Sam Kelly
, to support Ian Foxley
in the middle. Despite valiant efforts and some lovely individual skills from Jack Foxley
on the left of the attack, Thirsk were rarely able to pressurise the opposition D, but still managed to turn around just 1-0 behind and confident ahead of the second half.
The second half brought some horrendous conditions and although the defence cleared most of the attacks, Thirsk were unable to contain the well drilled opposition, who seemed to score from almost every chance they created, resulting in a misleading score line from a fairly even match.
Final score 0-4.
