Match Report

In or first game of the season, and having completed or now customary introductions before the game, 5ths managed to turn an enterprising 4 - 1 winning position into a disappointing 4 - 5 defeat in the space of about 15 minutes during which the positional discipline disappeared and Sutton Coldfield increased their tempo with no discernible response from ourselves. Goals from James Fisher (2), Tom Mandrell and Andy Cooper Jnr had put us in a flattering situation given that Sutton had a strong team and played positive attacking hockey. The game was for the most part competitive and enjoyable - and we were perhaps disadvantaged by not having had any pre-league friendly games - but we will have to be more disciplined and focussed for the full 70 minutes to be successful.
