Colron 2 V 1 Falcons 2013
Pitch : Foley Road
Match Report

A below strength Falcons team lost out to a very strong and well organized Colron team on Thursday evening.

Although there can be no complaints about the result of this match with Colron deservedly taking all 3 points after controlling much of the match it was disappointing that a game that should of given us the opportunity to show what a good team we are ended up with a disjointed performance where the lads battled well but failed to pass the ball and create chances.

The night started badly when a local schools tournament Resulted in 3 of the lads arriving just on kick off time (having played already for an hour or so) and arguably our best player for the last month or so missing through injury. This became even more of a problem when Tom arrived not feeling well and only managed 15 minutes of the match before having to head back home. The fact that we were without a player that has already scored 36 goals for us this season left us short of attacking options and this showed up in a difficult first period with Colron taking the lead just before half time following a good run and finish from the striker.

The second period saw an improved team performance and for a while it looked like Falcons might have taken an unlikely point after a wonderful strike from Dylan leveled the scores. Unfortunately the lads did not heed the warning about giving away needless corners and from one such mistake Colronregained the lead with just a few minutes left.

Credit should be given to Colron as they were always a threat and a lot of work as clearly gone into their set piece routines whilst their work rate throughout the match was excellent. Our lads now have a cup final to look forward to and with a league game still to play against Stafford we could yet decide who wins the title this season.

Lukash and Joe both played very well at the back again tonight but MOM goes to Dylan for a great goal and a tireless and brave display against much bigger opposition!
