Clarawood

The rec made the short trip to billy niell pitches on a wet miserable Saturday morning. Sticking with the team that played so well last Saturday morning ,coach Phil emphasise the need for the boys to concentrate ,take the pitch conditions into consideration and get the ball down and play .

Following a short 15 minute delay as the referee had forgot his whistle the match got under way most of the early play was in the middle park with midfield generals Gibson and Johnston trying to get the ball down and play. 22 minutes in and clarawood take the lead no 8 clarawood midfielder works his way past 5 rec players without a challenge , a dreadful goal to concede it was as if the rec boys where still sleeping.( waky ,waky guys )

The rec boys struggling to put a pass together making there opponents look good surely there will be changes at half time. The referee blows the whistle to end the 1st half ,thank god itís as if the rec players donít know each other ,what a disaster the rec boys come of the pitch to be told in no uncertain terms how poor that 1st half was , the players know that they havenít performed at all a performance that was totally unacceptable .

Half time . The rec 0 - clarawood 1

Coach Phil Johnston tells the players to sort themselves out and start playing football , Cameron makes way for Ben chambers at left back with mike McGrath coming on for Adam ( bestie ) Martin .

The referee blows for the start of the 2nd half and within 5 mins the halftime break chat pays off ,front man Callum mackay controls a through ball from Gibson and calmly tucks the ball away to make it 1-1 .The rec boys are now well on top captain matty Gibson unleashes a thunderous shot from 25 yards what flys pass the keeper what a goal .

2-1 to the rec . 10 mins in and itís 2-2 the visitors score from a suspiciously looking off side goal with the ref insisting the ball had hit big defender Alex ( McGregor) Hamilton .

The rec boys have now got the bit between there teeth and start to play some good football striker sadayu has the beating of the defenders stretching them with his deep penetrating runs itís only a matter of time before goal no 3 comes . The recís defenders are now getting to grip with there opponents winning the 2nd balls and controlling things at the back .

Corner kick to the rec Luke Johnston steps up floats the ball over for captain Gibson to rise and power the ball in at the far post .3-2 to the rec . Play continues and itís time for a change itís Brandon time ,on comes this quiet powerhouse of a centre half to replace centre back Quinn who once again has had a steady game in the centre of the back four .

The game takes a few minutes delay whilst the players try to deal with a pitch invader whoís determined to hold up play ,is this a ploy by clarawood to use up time thankfully the speedy reactions of coach Phil catches the speedy Labrador and play continues.

Centre forward sadayu makes way for Cameron ( evil knieval haslam )up front ,Sadayu has put a good 2nd half in although he has been unwell this week.Well done sadayu ,play continues free kick to the Rec , midfielder Luke Johnston sets the ball and curls a great right foot shot in which flys past the keeper what a goal Luke . 4 - 2 to the rec .

The game moves into the final 10 mins, free kick to the rec up steps Alex ( McGregor ) Hamilton who hits a thunderous left foot shot that the keeper canít hold forwards haslam and Martin are unable to the follow up and put it away.

The clarawood no 5 hits along ball up field but itís quickly returned by midfielder Luke ( the quiet man ) Johnston ,captain Gibson latches onto the ball and with the help of a deflection the ball ends up the net 5-2 to the Rec and a lovely hat trick for skipper matty ( the man ) Gibson .

The ref blows up final score : comber rec u 17 5 clarawood 2

The rec boys certainly put a shift in to secure a much deserved win which leaves them sitting deservedly at the top of the table 2 wins from 2 .

Man of the match award goes to joint players : hat trick hero matty Gibson and midfield maestro Luke Johnston great effort guys.

Moan of the day belongs to coach Phil ,how does he explain to the club that we losted 4 match balls today perhaps ,Alex if in doubt put it out Hamilton could help explain lol

Any one in the Bangor/ Ards area keep a look out for our balls please .

The rec boys get out of jail today hopefully lesson learned for next week .well done to the squad for all the imput and to the parents who supported us especially on a miserable Saturday morning hopefully the result will have made it all worth while .
