Winchester City 3-0 Willand Rovers
Well that was most pleasing, for me it was a dominant display and gave everyone a good look at what we have been working hard on in training! They are a great bunch of lads who give everything for the club and for me and I couldn’t be more pleased for them to get the results they do, in my opinion they should be getting more accolades than they do, the amount of difficulties they face and the financial rewards they could get elsewhere are massive, they are all absolute facts that people probably don’t realise but they are! Plus a staff who don’t get a penny for what they do, I am so proud to manage this group and this club and whatever happens I am proud of what we have done and how we have done it!
Today, we could have should have been well ahead in first half but 1 was all we got and a great clearance from Hayward kept us ahead on stroke of half time which would have been a travesty!
2nd half we blew them away and scored to but it could have been 7/8! Baz with a hat trick. Very good display all around and it is tough to pick an MOM but for me a couple of lads who often don’t get the praise on here, Kieran Douglas who we have worked on as developed massively and is potentially an absolute star for the future! Plus Luke King who has been a rock in CM and steady and physical and is a major loss when not around! Willand were brushed aside really like they are an average side, believe me they are good, they won 6 out of last 7 and top drawer forward line so it was a very good win.
One final thing, in my opinion, the crowds that we are getting I cannot fathom! We are the highest place the club has ever been (yes I know you had what I will call the Warren Bentley season) and finished in the playoffs but other than that we are higher by a long way, I would say we play some of the best brand of football in the league and yet the crowds are so low... I only hope that enough noise is made of what we have here in this group! People will say not much is said on here, however Steve is posting every thing and yet the crowds are lower than when he wasn’t and DOF was rightfully having a bit of a moan. Is enough said about what is happening on the pitch, probably not, not many posts are on here, if we lose a couple of games the warriors will be out to dig at us though! I honestly am not worried about any praise personally, however this group of lads are deserving of so much more than they are getting in every single aspect! I hope they are appreciated.
Onto he next one against Bideford next Saturday, a good weeks training and a club Christmas meal first though which will be great.
Up the citizens!!
