Today’s match was staged on a clear day down at Hallhill. Would I say warm for Hallhill? Right from the start, I could see that the Fettes side were very well drilled in crisp passing and using the width of the pitch. For the Belhaven boys to see this first hand did give them the opportunity to see what they have been trying to achieve in practice and this observation help them to start to pass more and to create opportunities.

At half time in the first of our Fettes matches the score was three nil and the Belhaven Boys had a mountain to climb. The team talk was positive and the discussion involved keeping to our positions. Then Fettes added 3 goals to the score and the Belhaven Boys had a couple of opportunities up the other end. Then finally nearing the end, Johnny used some silky smooth stick work in the D to score a great goal. The final score like all match statistics does not show the development throughout the game.

Key players were Jamie, Tom, Harry, Beetle, Charlie and Johnny who were very good at holding their positions. Some more amazing goal keeping from Harry, who performed exceptionally well, making many magnificent saves.

Well done to the whole team for never giving up.
