Match Report: Last game of the regular season. Equation for us was simple – win and hope Rovers lost to win the league – any other combo, we’d come second

Eli gave the boys some inspirational words before the game – see photo

Jake was a late withdrawal with injury so Ethan moved to the midfield alongside Damo and Max. Glenmore were well on top for the first ten minutes but we defended stoutly and there was no clear chance given. We worked our way into the game and created a couple of good chances – Alex L shooting wide. Alex C was troubling the right back with his runs and was winning free kicks as he was fouled numerous times. He seemed to be brought down in the box but the ref did not blow his whistle. Two minutes later Alex L got in behind the same player and was up ended, this time a penalty was awarded. Captain Calm Aidy slotted it into the net, 1-0 half time

Second half was evenly contested – Eli made a brilliant save to keep us ahead. Ethan and Alex L threatened to get in behind for us regularly. At the back Aidy, Millsy, Sam, Keastie & Alex C, when on for Keastie, were rock solid. Midfield fought for every ball, led by Dom who was superb and Jacob’s fast feet and mind were creating openings. Aidy almost doubled the lead with a long range effort, well saved. Damo just missed a header from a corner

It stayed 1-0 and we’d done our bit. News came in a bit later that Rovers had also won 1-0 and had therefore won the league. Congratulations to the Rovers boys

Player’s player of the match was Alex C – despite being kicked, regularly, Alex got up & kept going at his opponent all game. Well done Alex

I’d like to say thank you to all my boys this year – you give me your all every week – can not ask for anymore. Love coaching you and couldn’t be more proud of you
