the 1st team beat AFC Cubo 3-0 on saturday at home. The scoreline looks like this was an easy game but this anything but that. Cubo as we know from

last season play really good possession football and make you work extremely hard to get anything. from the kick off cubo got hold of the ball and knocked it around and our midfield were working overtime to try to stop them from taking control of the game it took us a good 15 minutes to start to get our game going then we created the 1st opening of the match where Shury wrangled free but squirmed his shot wide. cubo responded by attacking us and for the 1st time in the game pushed a lot of players forward dark having a solid game at the back won a good challenge knocking the ball to Baldwin who hit a long defence splitting pass for Henzi who took the ball clean with a good touch and went through one on one with the keeper where he side stepped him and rolled the ball into an empty net. you could see that cubo were stunned as had to be honest been in control of the game up to this point from the kick off you could see this affected them as they gave us the ball straight back and we started to mount attacks causing problems to there defenders who when back pedalling started to look uncomfortable. Into the second half with the message to step up our game not let them settle and get our passing game going it seemed to work as we started carving out good chances, once again not taking any . Cubo now were struggling to keep hold of henzi shury & cooper as another goal looked to be coming but we were caught flat as cubo broke and the dangerous Cain broke free facing Gooding in a one on one situation, gooding raced from his line forcing cain to shoot probably sooner than he would have wanted, with this Gooding got down to left and made a match winning save . This seemed to spur us on and within a minute had our second from some good football Shury got on the end of a superb cross and with cooper dummying the ball was left with time at the far post to pick his spot and bury into the back of the net for his 1st goal since rejoining the club. we got our third from another good short passing move which sidoui finished in style. So three goals clean sheet another 3 points a good day against we feel one of the best footballing sides in the league also a good bunch of lads who made it a good game to watch on saturday for who ever you supported.
