Because of the forecasted weather , I asked Jackie the groundsman if we could play on the Rec pitch. We got the go ahead and I'm glad we did as this match was played in strong winds and threatening rain. This was to be our last match in supplementry cup before the league kicked of so I'd taken a big squad to try to get as many as possible a run out . We had Alex Hamilton and Darren Ewart making their debuts for Comber Rec. As Alex Montgomery wasn't available, Dylan stepped up to partner Joel at centreback. The game got underway and from the of it was evident that comber where the better side. With good low passing they cut through the defence at will but being shot shy let them down. Comber took the lead through Tom who met a cross with so much venom that the keeper and defender couldn't stop it. 1-0 Annoyingly Comber done there normal and instead of getting back to playing after scoring they tip tapped about with the ball and let castle in to score a goal totally against the run of play.1-1. Kai on right wing totally had the running of his opponent and consistently got by him, just after castle scored, Kai made the run at the defender, cut in and hit the shot which got deflected into the net for an og 2-1. I felt the team was a bit unbalanced, our CM kept drifting leaving a large space in the middle of the park. After jigging the team with Alex going into left back and Adam and Darren going into midfield, along with Kirsty upfront. The team looked better and Kirsty got on the score sheet after just coming on with a delightful left footed lob. 3-1. We were having a lot of success done the left. Tom and Alex played like they'd known each other for years. Unfortunately nobody was able able to get onto the end of any of the crosses. Another period of no concentration saw a long ball get over Joel in defence and the forward got onto the end of it and made it 3-2 and that's how the half finished. The talk here was for closing down quicker and to make sure that we got to the 50/50 balls first. Comber delivered. They pressed from the of and dominated the game once again. A few changes saw Ben at centre back Aman midfield and Kirsty still up front. She got her second early on and could've had a couple more.4-2 Alex was playing out of his skin continually playing the ball into space. One such time Wee Messi latched onto it. 5-2. Castle knew the game was over as they seemed to let their heads drop. Alex got another assist, with Chris converting 6-2.
We have done extra training concentrating on shooting from distance and under pressure, comber showed what they'd learnt in this second half. Wee Messi rattled the crossbar from 25y out and Toms wonder volley was strangely ruled offside. Aman got on the score sheet with a great solo goal, 7-1 scoring his first goal at 11aside. Comber seemed to have all the ball but when castle did rarely challenge our goal, Ben Chambers in our goal seemed to hold everything not letting castle even get a sniff of a tap in. Ben Scott stepped up with a worldy of a strike, finding the bottom corner through defenders from 18y out ( extra training again working). This was just a good all round team performance. The substitutions didn't weaken or hinder the team.
All in all this match had a lot of positives, the communication , spirit , patience everything was there, but there was still the odd mistake which on a different day could be costly ie Leaving to much space by going outta position, the kids need to learn to head a ball, getting closer to the opponent receiving the ball and most of all to convert clear cut chances.
