November started with our semi-final: in the words of one spectator, “if the game had been decided on possession in the other team’s half, you’d have won by half time“. While our dozen shots on goal showed great attacking intent, it was our decision not to recover back which allowed our opponents to score twice. The second of these counter attacks was in the last few seconds of normal time and allowed our opposition to equalise to make it 2-2. After a total of twenty penalties, we narrowly lost out. But penalties aside, the result showed that we need to work more on our recovery runs if we are to reach a final. Well done Jude for saving five of the penalties.

Rain in November meant that our fixtures were cancelled for two consecutive weeks at Silverdale although we made up for this with another futsal tournament. Jude got on the scoresheet and proved that goalkeepers always need to be alert – the opposition’s goalkeeper certainly wasn’t expecting our goalkeeper to shoot and score! As a team, we also took the opportunity to attend a Coerver team session this month in addition to those players who practice with Coerver regularly.

Great news this month is that we welcome Aidan into our team. Aidan scored in his first futsal game with a well executed volley from a Joseph cross. His first Sunday appearance saw him get two assists in his first match and a brace of goals in his second. Josh also earned another match ball with hat trick, his third goal from distance capping off a fine display. Elliot has once more been very consistent and has played with intelligence at the back and Jack has impressed this month, continuing to improve both in his game understanding and with his ability to concentrate.

Our topics for the month were Finishing before we worked on Support and Movement. The latter topic really shone through in our two games against Wyrley Lasers and Bustleholme Villains.
