Although it took nearly 6 months into our 8th game of the season, the wait for our 1st victory and first points was worth every moment. Weathering the attacking start from Lyndhurst with a super display from the impregnable back four of goalkeeper Marcus and the 6RU back three of Sasha, Jim and Luca, we went into the interval all square. But as the second half developed, Rosendale’s confidence grew, launching several attacks on goal and with 10 minutes remaining, Chante deftly struck a beautiful shot into the left hand corner from the edge of the box and jubilant scenes ensued as the team realised their duck was just about to be broken. With 3 League games still remaining and the second round of the Magazine Cup next Saturday, everything is left to play for and our highest League position finish is most definitely obtainable. Well done boys and girls: we’ve been so close on several occasions this season only to be upset at the last. Thanks too to the merry throng of parents and carers who turned out on a raw morning to cheer us on to victory.
Team: Blythe (c), Rhys, Marcus M, Sasha, Jim, Luca, Lenny, Omari, Chante, Frank, Junior
