Support the Army

Tonights game was a spectacle worth standing in the cold for.

The Red Army were fit and fast but the players from the mainland had by far the greater chances in the first half. A slow start lead the Red Army to concede two sloppy goals followed by a thumping tight angle shot from the visitors.

Our goalie showed his disappointment by dishing out his orders to the hapless defenders which could be heard loud and clear from the terraces! He moved the ball out quickly and at one point astonished the opposition as well as his team mates by racing out of the area and almost booting it the length of the pitch!

Our goal came immediately after an opposition player had received treatment on the ground following a neatly timed ankle check from our no. 7. A smart header from the back post powered in past the stranded German goalie.

The second half we were much sharper and showed a sense of determination and purpose. We peppered their goal following searing crosses from the wingers and long shots from outside the area.

Typical Army: crunching tackles on our lads werent met with rolling round on the pitch or faking injury. Some of the boys were clearly in pain but they dragged themselves back up and carried on.

The result was incidental. The real purpose was to pay respect to those who are serving and ex service personnel. It was to pay respect to those who have given their lives for their country, particularly in the Centenary Year of the first World War.
