" Football , football , sometimes you win , sometimes you lose , sometimes you draw but if you REALLY want to win , you will WIN most of the time ". So said an old bloke in Horsforth Park drinking Diamond White and looking suspiciously like Birchy .

We started this game against Old Headingley really well , intercepting and blocking out their attacks then playing some lovely football going forward . Jonny Wilson and new striker Nathan linking up well with Will Brown down the right side and Capt Pouncett , Josh and Clemence controlling the midfield . It was wave after wave of attacks , Pouncett again putting quality freekicks and corners in the box but we failed to score . Old Headingley looked a good team and their fullback chipped a goal from 25 yards against the run of play after 30 mins . The game was then fairly even but we had a good chance to equalise just before halftime , Jonny blazed high and wide when really should have made sure he hit the target .
2nd half and again we attacked but again we didn't test the keeper , Old Headingley scored a break away goal on 70mins and that was that . They had good players and really wanted to win and closed the game down well , credit to them .
We must learn quickly that WYL Div 1 is a good standard and that when we are playing well we have to punish teams or they will get back in the game . We have to show more belief , stick together when games don't go our way and especially show more REAL desire to win . We are a good team with some very talented individuals as Birch keeps telling us but as Smythey would say ' Have we got the spuds for it ? '
