The regular season is over, and the unbeaten record is still intact, so well done to the boys for that. If there were a league for the U12, we would have won it easily.........David Shuttleworth even turned up to see if his presence was a jinx on the team, but it appears not, so he is free to attend the cup final next weekend!
Today was a tricky looking assignment against an unknown Cheadle Hulme team that has had some good results this season. Added to that, we were on a really small pitch which we know doesn't suit our style of play. This took a bit of time to get used to, but eventually the team settled down and played some good lacrosse.
Seb Phillips is worth a mention today as he played a solid game in midfield, scoring a couple of goals and winning a lot of good ground ball. This is exactly the kind of selfless performance we needed - someone to do the unglamorous (but not unnoticed) hard yards in the midfield.
