Practice Makes Perfect

18/12/07 |

Down on the training pitch early this morning because of College. Me and Tucka (Tom Thorley) were sent across to train with the first team for the morning before being taken away to College.

Ady had organised a match today against a Sports College as a chance for us all to get in some game practice before we go on our Christmas break. We started slowly and couldn’t find any real consistency in our play but 10 minutes before half time we made a break through when the ball was sent back to me by the striker and I managed to strike the ball cleanly into the bottom corner.

A lot of changes were made at half time, including me being brought off, but the lads who went on didn’t disappoint as they put the game beyond reach when a cross was put into their own net by one of their defenders. We used our advantage of skill and fitness to dominate the game and eventually this was reflected in the score line when we went on to make it 4-0.
