Our final match of 2019 was a great way to end the year. The two teams have played each other 4 or 5 times since summer with some really close games particularly recently. Moston are a good physical side with some quality players. Today’s game ended in a draw with lots of well taken goals. The workrate and attitude from our boys was the best I have seen it.
Alex in goal was loud and quick off his line making a few very important saves. Alex has had a superb 2019 playing in a number of different positions without any fuss.
Emanuel is growing in confidence every week and it’s showing as he is taking control of situations in defence making his prescence known. He was solid today with some important blocks and tackles. Emanuel is developing a good partnership alongside one of the the most calmest and unfazed defenders in the league.. Aiden. Aiden nearly capped his great performance with a solo run through the middle of the pitch just missing the hollywood finish! he’ll get it next time.
John appeared in every position today, he chased everything down, played intelligent passes and added 2 brilliantly taken goals to a 10/10 performance.
Riley played great today with some nice skills and close control which enables him to nip past the much taller lads who were marking him. He is also starting to play the right passes when he needs to which is massively improving his game (after weeks, months and years of us mithering him to !!)
Daniel completely controlled the centre of midfield today and proved to be very frustrating for the opposition. His attitude in the second half was really good to see and he showed more proof of why he is so highly rated.
Joshua took on the captains armband in the summer and he’s really grown into it. He’s a loud positive influence on the pitch and also contributing in the half time team talks and it didnt stop today. Joshua was gambling on everything and made life very hard for their defence, also getting another goal to add to his impressive collection.
A great way to finish the first half of the season with a good result against a team that we have developed a competitive rivalry with.
Thanks to all the players and parents for everything in 2019. Have a great Christmas and new year and we’ll get back to it in 2020 ⚽️⚽️
