 Sunday 20th November 2011 Home Game KO 10.30am
This game had to be by far the worst game FC Phoenix had played all season. Well they can’t be expected to play great every week can they? Well sorry but we do expect it every week, we don’t expect every player to have a great game every week but we do expect FC Phoenix to step up their play when things aren’t going so well. At times the passing was awesome but lads if you lose the ball, don’t worry, show us you want it and just get it back!

The team was quite disjointed as Meds was ill and key players played in positions they weren’t used to. For the first half of the game Jaytee was in goal and he was quite proud of the fact that he kept a clean sheet during this time and made some great saves as well as distribution of the ball. He played part of the 2nd half outfield & also scored a goal.

Troyster showed courage & went in goal for part of the second half & we commend him. He wasn’t the best at picking the ball up with his hands when he needed to & kept using his feet but that’s fine because when he played outfield his footwork was very good. FC Phoenix then had a 3rd goalie as Azzo stepped up & showed his determination. He cleared a crucial shot off the line, made some good decisions as well as scoring his first league goal for a very long time.
His jubilation clearly showed in his celebration!

Ols got another goal, when Leominster was asked if it was an own goal they said no, give the goal to Ols which I expect he is quite glad about. Leominster scored 4 goals against us and they appeared happy with that as we looked nervous. The rest of the goal tally came from Gouphy. He over powered their defence, worked hard and walked away with another hat trick under his belt. Well done to all the lads but hopefully they put this game down to experience & get ready to step up their play for their next game against Pegasus Juniors and don’t concede any goals.
