Match Report - 17 Oct 2009, Leeds Modernians Football Club 4ths beat Shadwell Reserves
What a game.
Has to go down as one of the most bonkers game of footy I've been involved in.
Opposition: What is it with some people?
Bunch of (@)(@)'s.
I can't praise the lads in the 4ths team highly enough for their spirit, their comradeship and their sheer guts and determination to work hard for one another.
This game brought all of this out in each individual.
9 times out of 10, in games like this, against teams like Shadwell, we come out second best.
Not in this game.
We fought to the end and got our just rewards.
We did not lose.
We have got our season going.
We all encourage one another.
We have developed great communication on and off the pitch.
The improvement in al areas of our game continues week on week.
Across the board we all did all we could.
Well played everyone.
OK, we all know we lost our shape and rhythm when injuries hit in the middle of the 2nd half, but that only brought out an extra resolve to ensure we did not lose.
Goals came from Ash, heading in a corner in the first half and The Hitman Stuie curling a left foot peach into the top corner, notching his 2nd goal in 4 games for the Club, right at the death.
A vote after the game for man of the match went to Howie.
Well played fella, you were fantastic on Sat.
A great individual performance from a great team player.
Next week we have 3 missing from the 4ths (Bryan, Matty and Steve) and with the 2nds and 3rds not in action, will look to bring in 3 direct replacements.
They will come into a team that wants to put the record straight against opposition, Thornes Reserve's, and turn the narrow defeat, that we gifted to them, into victory.
