A glorious win to the B’s and a draw to the A’s in a good performance (that was marred only by conceding two soft goals) were the results in Round 19 of the Collegiate League for the Glamour. The A’s got off to a super start as they played to coaches instructions by using the … read more.
The B’s started much like last week and conceded a goal in the first minute due to hesitant defending in the box. I have said many times that defenders need to take responsibility in the box and not leave it for someone else – still plenty of room for improvement in that direction. To the … read more.
Hmm… the A’s game. That was 9 days ago. Here are some things I can remember: We scored 9 goals, of which Richie scored 3 in 45 minutes, and of which Nick scored none up front in 90. We conceded 2 goals, of which one eluded Danny, as it rolled with slothful stealth into the … read more.

This week saw the mighty whites take on one of last seasons form sides in a do or die grudge match after the mercedes boys had beaten the whites 2-0 in a pre-season ‘friendly’ that really was anything but. Once again a number of players dropped down from the A’s to strengthen our lineup and … read more.
The C’s this week took on Mercedes in the ‘top of the table’ clash (both had a win to start the season). Chris rung in the changes, with Leo, Chester, Jacky, Austin and Collins all elevated to the starting line-up. A quick look at Mercedes 4ths before kick off revealed more than a couple of … read more.
