Player of the Match: Jake

Match Report: A pitch with frost on it greeted us for the early kick off at Jamo. Four out, so Jos kindly played up again and in goal so we had one sub

We were on top, possession wise, early but didn’t create too much – an Ethan header going wide from a Jake corner the best chance. Penrith exerted some pressure and we paid for not clearing well enough with a tap in at the far post. We hit back quickly – Aidy’s penalty hitting the post but good scrap by Ethan and Aidy on the rebound seeing the latter fire in the equaliser. We created lots more chances before half time – Jake’s free kick put away by Aidy but adjudged offside. Right on half time Jake put Eli, having a game outfield, away down the right and his perfect cross was put away by Ethan

The second half saw us continue to create chances but now they started to find the net – a Millsy header off Jake’s corner; Dom and Eli both poaching in the box and Ethan tapping in after Eli’s shot was saved

A convincing win, with three players scoring their first of the season. Max was superb at right back; Keastie returned from injury and was solid at left back. Jacob and Damo were both their usual creative selves in the attacking third. Jos made some great saves – in the first half particularly when the game was in the balance. Alex C was up and down the left wing all game

Player of the match Jake who has been the dominant central midfielder in the last two games and was at the heart of everything positive we did today – a real leader and a great talker on the pitch
