Match Report From Phil Deeley
Firstly I would like to thank all 10 who turned up and put in a very good performance against a hungry clarendon team.As usual things crop up and people get called away so we started with 10. From the off we had a game plan and after 15 minutes of tight defending from the pressure of the clarendon lads a wonder strike broke our resilience. After the opener we started to show we could move the ball through some great play . There second came from Pablo drilling in a free kick. The third another wonder strike which took a deflection. All within a 10 minute spell. The lads dusted themselves down and started 2 enjoy our football, ,getting the ball down and moving it in to dangerous area’s. Then one of the funniest goals I have seen from us I think I have seen the ball played over the top and the goalkeeper was talking to his daughter behind him and the young pudding (only 46 years old) slotted the ball calmly under the keeper when he knew where the ball was. Clarendon answered with another. 4-1 at half time. We came out knowing we can put in a great 2nd half and down to some real greatest performance from sparky, jay, lee, jo,mike and sam. Endless running and great hearts . Up until the 90th minute the lads contested and were still trying to get goals and play football although the legs were tiring. After having a brief chat with the linesman through the first half and consolidation with the clarendon players they couldn’t believe we had 10 players. 2nd half was 1-1 every one of us today walkes off the pitch with there heads held high. I was really proud of what we achieved!
