Our match against Ardvreck was a strange event as we were comfortably leading 2-0 after 5 minutes and then the team lost some focus. Not chasing back the ball to support the defence. Granted, Ardvreck were playing their 8 players against our 7, but this should not have made a difference if we had kept our play the way we started off.

If I can focus on the positives: more effective passing than usual: the stopping of the ball improved: going to get the ball rather than waiting for the ball to come to you was so much better.

More focus on tracking back at all time would have made a difference and in future players should check where the goal was before taking a shot!

One more match to come this season. Let us learn from this experience. Well done boys, keep trying hard.
