Today sees us at the beautiful seaside pitch at west beach! We are playing Mercedes who’s ground is unplayable so lucky us are here at ‘wind tunnel park’
Today will be a hot contest as Mercedes have produced some impressive performances with a 1 all draw with Pembroke and a 2-1 victory over Rostrevor over the last 2 weeks!
This is the form team in the comp so a very tough game away for the whites! Rumor is they have also loaded their side to stick it up us as well!
It’s cold, breezy and the pitch is average but not wet!
Mercedes look serious in their warm up and have come to play!
The Whites have Saf back but Rob1 still out, Jan back in for Arron and also Cam who are both up to the C’s
We may get a late shower as its does look darkish to the west.
Good start for Bres as he was pacing along the sideline on his phone and the kids game next to us push the ball out to the line. Bres not watching crashing into a poor Little 10 year old and took him out! In true Bres style he just continues to wander along the line and looks back with a smirk!
Looking at Mercedes they look like an even group with a couple of big boys! They have skills and an aggressive approach! Both squads have full numbers. Game on is my call but let’s go whites 3-2
One issue no ref and the start has been pushed back to 1.15 pm so he can make it…?
He has arrived and we have had him before and that was interesting as he is very emotional when it’s tough!
A very even start and both midfields look good!
A play down the left and Ellery is on it he passes to Abdul who beats the defender and delivers a great ball across the keeper to Johnny who pumps it in for the whites first! 1-0 whites . That was quick!
Early observation are they have not defended well so that maybe a bonus for us!
Saba another great ball but Johnny’s shot is blocked by the keeper.
A massive goal kick goes 69 Mtrs with the wind from Mercedes but Dans header is a fantastic for the clearance.
Dan with another great header clears the lines.
Mercedes push hard and are in the game as they settle after the early goal.
