2017/18 – Gameweek 8

A nice antidote to the week before, with three wins out of four for the club, including a goal fest for the 4th XI.

The 1st XI were part of a bizarre game with South Bank.  Despite having more chances (estimate 15 vs. 9) we couldn’t make them pay, and although we came back to 4-4 from 4-2 with 5 minutes of normal time remaining, we came unstuck in extra time through a baffling offside decision from the referee.  Tough to take but ready to bounce back vs. Norsemen this weekend.

A great result for the 2nd and 3rd XI.  The 3rd XI came away with their second 1-0 (from a penalty) in three games, whilst the 2nd XI came out on top with the odd goal in five.  And then a select group of them went out for Luka’s birthday which would have been a very tame affair with no drama, no doubt.

Ed’s lads were rampant against EBOG after an initially tense start, going 2-0 up before the opposition pulled it back to 2-2.  The floodgates then opened with Nabeel, Dan, Gordon and Nathan all grabbing a brace in a comfortable AFA Cup win.

A full complement of fixtures this weekend (we hope).  More wins for the Birds to come!
