Managers log – Sunday 23rd February
So, it was a sunny day on the Marshes, it was a cup game and we had nothing to lose but our pride (they were an under 18 team after all). We started out well but they scored an early goal against the run of play and then they scored another and another. Alfie made the tactical decision to change to a 3-5-2 formation, always a little scary (especially for us 3 at the back) but it worked and in the second half she swopped Caz to the front and Precious to holding mid fielder and we were rewarded with 2 goals, a stunner by Helen from outside the box (her first of the season apparently) and a cocker by Caz from a seemingly impossible angle. Players of the match were Caz, Precious and Helen, though everyone agreed that it was too hard to call and the whole team received several votes.
If we had had another 10 minutes I am sure we would have equalised but we didn’t and we didn’t. So it wasn’t a win but we did come away with our pride intact.
