Manager log – Sunday 16th March 2014
Before I start I want to make sure you are all sitting down. Ok, are you ready for this? HWFC Reserves WON!!!!! All those weeks in the cold and rain, slogging through the mud for double figure losses, they all seem worth it now. We seem to finally have a team. Caitlin in goal was superb making a couple of spectacular saves. We have a back line of Sue, Naina, Ayesha and Robyn who know what they are doing and more importantly know what each other are doing and trust them to get it done. The mid field was Michelle (welcome back Planet), Ren on loan from the firsts, Kat and Leandra playing on the wing for the first time. They all battled hard, closed the opposition down and opened up on attack. Up front we had the ever improving Aydan and back after some protracted negotiations that involved the promise of fags, alcohol and pompom wielding cheerleaders (we’ll work on that for next week) was Sox.
Which brings us to the score: 2-0 and the scorer: Sox, both of them. The first was a free kick, which Sox took quite well but it was a mistake by the keeper that let it in. The second goal was quality. A though ball by Ren and a perfectly judged chip over the keeper from Sox.
For player of the match, Ren got a vote as did Kat, Ayden received a couple, Caitlin a couple more but it was Sox who won the chocolate footballs.
Well done us. May the good weather and the good form continue.
