After plenty of training and a couple of trials, the boys were keen to kick off their season with a win against Heathcote. With new players in Mitchell, Tom S and Joe slotting in seamlessly with the previous seasons team, the boys were confident of starting the season well.
After a few nervous moments in the first 10 minutes, the boys dominated the rest of the match with the defence playing outstandingly well to minimise Heathcote to few chances for the rest of the match.
With a torrential downpour occurring throughout the match, the conditions for play deteriorated but the quality from the boys did not. Pin point passing from the boys and smart play meant chances were created, but had to settle for one of those to be enough.
We got the one and only goal of the match in the final 5minutes of the first half, an intelligent free kick from new boy Tom S was put into the box, Wade directed a header down to Tom C whose finish was a rocket into the roof of the net from a tight angle.
This was a great way to start the season, with plenty of encouraging signs and a performance which can be built on for the rest of the season.
