No more injuries please!!!!
11 v 9!!
Going to an away match with only 9 players was always going to be a difficult, but with Thomas Knowlson & Daniel Hazelwood both with broken wrists, & Harvey Attfield with a broken foot we didn't have a lot of choice having already used the 24 hour rule!
So we arrive in Eartham to play Barnham Trojans (who to be fair are a very strong team) & come KO at 10am, typically the heavens opened & with limited shelter it was wet, windy & extremely cold!
The squad all knew what a mean task faced them, but I'm very proud to say that each & every one of them put in 100% effort & commitment for the entire 70 minutes. Only 2 - 0 down at half time but we knew that the next 35 minutes would be so much harder.
The boys were starting to tire & the weather wasn't helping at all! We began to lose shape towards the end & unfortunately we ended up losing 9 - 0. All in all, I would like to say that the boys all stuck together, & they all played so well considering, so a massive well done & thank you to Ross Baldwin, Max Poole, Adam Gladman
, James Kelly, Ben Saunders
, Ben Shaw
, Mackenzie Botting
, Dylan Goff
& George Sutherland - I'm very proud of you all!
