Team Update October 2016

“An impressive cup performance sees us through to the next round of the league cup.  I thought Uxbridge were a strong team and closer to the expected levels of quality we’ll come up against this season.  Albeit a tight game, I thought defensively we were so good reducing the oppo to long range shots.  Callum, Josh, Bradley, Joe, George have contributed so well in this area managing a Pacey front line and dealing with them in a very disciplined way.

A much tighter game resulted in more tactical changes, all of which played off with George replacing Harvey having run his socks off, Rhys replacing Rory for the same reasons and Liam to add some stability in front of the back four.  Our only criticism from the first half was failing to score good opportunities and making the final ball more effective.  The second half saw a great start from Uxbridge which we expected and during these periods of the game it’s critical we maintain discipline and control.  I thought we did this excellently and waited for the opportunity to present itself.  Once again, the combination of Sam and Rory played off and with fourth goal in 4 games Rory finds the net to give us the all-important winner.

We now have our sights on the Ascot game on Monday night, please encourage all you know to get along and support the team, hopefully you would have seen the positive write up from the online newspaper “footballinbracknell”.  The coaching team have shared this far and wide in order to increase awareness.  The Ascot game always brings with it a level of tension, both teams know it each other well dating back to when they were U6 and will be looking forward to a hugely competitive game”

On a separate note I’m pleased to report that 7 Sandhurst lads from the U18’s have represented the county this season.  3 went with the squad Saturday to Devon and beat them 5-1 in the county FA cup.  Kane Fitzgerald, Josh Hennah and Sam Henneberg were all given 90 minutes.  Callum Scott, Rory Fitzmaurice, Charlie Westell and Matt Hood will also be called up for games during October and November”
