We were really looking forward to this one after a good week at the training park. We have a lot of new recruits and it takes time to gel and this week in the lead up to the game I felt they were clicking.
The game started at a high tempo from both teams. We had a good deal of possession and at times looked dangerous. However against the run of play Avondale got a chance and converted.
Credit to the boys as they stuck to the task and pushed hard to try and get us back in the game. Even though we were 1-0 down, the boys were sticking to the task at hand.
The second half was just what we wanted from our boys. We were perhaps unlucky not to score but on the day they all gave us 110% effort and did exactly what was asked of them. The result didn’t go our way on the day but the effort and intensity was definitely there.
Our staff are proud of the group for the effort shown and the football we played.
