YEEEEEEEEES! finally a match report I looked forward to writing!!!
Firstly I must say that these two games versus Melksham United Hurricanes so far this season have been excellent to be a part of. The first game was brilliant even though we lost and this one was even better due to MYFC winning this time round.
Hopefully we have had our time wondering round a football pitch each week and this is now the start of putting in a real football performance every week.
Today’s game was quality right from the start from both teams. High tempo, end to end with every player playing a huge part.
Starting at the back with not a hugely busy game for the MYFC goalkeepers but they still deserve full credit for the clean sheet which in goalkeeping terms is big news.
The MYFC back 3 were nothing short of perfect. Maximum effort, calm defending, confident and controlled on the ball and constantly covering and supporting each other, working as a very strong unit. The opposition had to work really hard to even come close to getting round them.
The MYFC midfield 4 and striker also had a fantastic game. Playing football sensibly by being aware of positions and space and every time trying to play the passing but attacking style.
MYFC’s great performance resulted in chance after chance one of which we did manage to put in the back of the net – the only one of the game.
This was a proper game of football. Both teams playing to a very high standard, creating and denying chances time and time again. This was not a game with a high scoreline but it was a real game, with real effort and a real scoreline.
A fantastic game and a thoroughly deserved MYFC result, excellent work.
With two games left to play before the Christmas re shuffle and 6 points up for grabs its down to the players to continue this.
I will leave the final words to Tom Waldron who said to his team mates after the game, “Look what we can do when we concentrate“.
